Great Stories

I love his ability to pull you in quickly. All these stories are great and fun to read

Classic

This collection originally came out in the early 80s and scared the bejesus out of an 11 year old with an overactive imagination. It still works on me some 30 odd years later.

Night shift

This a great one for people new to Stephen King. This was my first book I read of his and I loved it. He is such a great writer. After you read a few of the stories, I bet you will be dreaming about the stories when you are asleep. Enjoy, I know I did!
