What I learned from Night Shift: It ain't easy to quit smoking. That I know what you need. That I am the doorway. That he walks behind the rows. That sometimes they come back. It ain't over in 'Salem's Lot. Don't drink bad beer. Get off your ass and mow your own lawn, goddammit.

These are short stories (though not novellas) which actually serve as delectable intros to popular King mythologies (for a staggering example see [or better yet, don't {with the exception of "Trucks" a.k.a. "Maximum Overdrive" for B-level entertainment and "Children of the Corn" with its quaint m...

Also posted at my blog: I find it really difficult to review short stories, especially anthologies. Night Shift is a collection of King's short stories, and if I'm not mistaken, this is a collection of the first short stories he wrote in his early years of...

First read this collection when I was... twenty, I think. Not sure. Does it matter? Probably not. Three things to mention before hitting you with my one sentence reviews: I forgot how much of King's early work tied into these stories, and how much I enjoyed his non-horror outings. Truth be told,...

Many readers consider this book to be one of Stephen King's most popular short story collections, and I can't disagree with that opinion ... mostly because it's only the second anthology by King I have read so far. Many original horror stories are included in this collection, with most of them ha...

In this book we are treated to much of Stephen King's earliest published writing, a full 10 stories (half of this book), were released in magazines, before his first novel, Carrie, was set loose on us. I was pleasantly surprised by these early works, as it seems to me King is not one of those au...

Note to self: do not read ANYTHING written by Stephen King after dark. Nothing. Not even if it happens to be comedy, or non-fiction, or freaking poetry. Haven’t you been traumatized enough? You can’t see a clown without pissing yourself! Not that it’s hard to scare me though. I’m the kind of girl...

I am stunned to admit that, at 25 years old, having been a fan of all things in the horror world for my entire life, I have only just now completed my very first Stephen King novel. I DNFed his books so many times in my teen years because his writing just wasn't for me. I appreciate his style tre...

Mr. Stephen King, you started scaring me when I was just a teen, then you go and try to do it again when I’m older, and often none-the-wiser. The best part: you can still do it. Not all of the 20 stories in Night Shift (his first short story collection) are terribly frightening. Some are not mean...
