I love short stories and I grew up with Stephen King's shorts. I still remember the "Quantum Leap" episode based on King. King has the ability to bring me that warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach. His prose somehow seems antiquated, as if you were being taken back to the rural past (of perhaps 40 years ago) where lonesomeness takes on an evil life of it's own. Here are 23 of King's short stories. The most memorable for me are "The Night Flier", which the vampire afficianados will suck up, and "The Moving Finger". "The Moving Finger" could be the King story that has subconsciously affected me the most. I cannot wash my hands in a bathroom or kitchen sink without thinking of this story and that damned daemonic finger. That's why I'm always sure to have on my person a sharp pocket knife. *Laughs hysterically*


A real box of SK gems, with a couple of duds just to keep you going.


There's a variety in this collection in addition to short stories, including an essay, a poem and a reimagined Hindu parable.Some of my favorite stories are "The Night Flier," "The Moving Finger," "Umney's Last Case" and "The Ten O'clock People."
