Stephen King Bibliography
Skip to main content Stephen King Short Stories. Everything's Eventual: 14 Dark Tales. This book is a collection of 14 shorts stories by Stephen King. The longest story is a prequel to the Dark Tower series and will doubtless be of interest to fans of that series. In recent months, a number of people have likely bought this collection to read "" so they can see the story that the movie was based on.

Add to Bag. Here, submitted for your approval, are the short story collections of Stephen King, ranked. The stories are consistently strong, but the concepts within them are ones he has either explored fully before, or improved upon in later works. While all four novellas go some interesting places, none stand alone as singular works. Whether they take too long to build, telegraph their twists, or feel like a prologue to a later work, all four stories are memorable but not superlative.
