“I came to you because I want to tell my story” (The Boogeyman)

The first collection of King short stories, previously published in magazines of very varied style and quality. Here are some genuine classics, such as Quitters Inc, Children of the Corn, The Boogeyman and Strawberry Spring. And let’s not forget one of his most beautiful stories, The Last Rung on the Ladder, which is very far from horror. Several of the stories here have been turned into bad films.

The forewords by King and John D. MacDonald are both wonderful.
