Overview

Stephen King's first collection of short stories, originally published in 1978, showcases the darkest depths of his brilliant imagination and will chill the cockles of many a heart (Chicago Tribune). Night Shift is the inspiration for over a dozen acclaimed horror movies and television series, including Children of the Corn , Chapelwaite, and Lawnmower Man. Here we see mutated rats gone bad ( Graveyard Shift ); a cataclysmic virus that threatens humanity ( Night Surf, the basis for The Stand); a possessed, evil lawnmower ( The Lawnmower Man ); unsettling children from the heartland ( Children of the Corn ); a smoker who will try anything to stop ( Quitters, Inc. ); a reclusive alcoholic who begins a gruesome transformation ( Gray Matter ); and many more shadows and visions that will haunt you long after the last page is turned.
