I am not that familiar with Stephen King. My genre tastes typically flow to the realistic rather than the unreal (think crime noir rather than sci-fi).

There is "1922", the story of a Nebraska farmer who murders his wife and is henceforth haunted by her. Then there is "Big Driver. His epic works The Dark Tower and It are the basis for major motion pictures, with It now the highest grossing horror film of all time. He is the recipient of the 2018 PEN America Literary Service Award, the 2014 National Medal of Arts, and the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.
King's popularity comes from his ability to create stories in which evil occurs in ordinary situations. Many of King's stories are l, meaning that they are taken in part from some of his own experiences. Many of the locations he writes about are based on the places he grew up in when he lived in Maine and other locations.
Neil Gaiman is gripped by Stephen King's portraits of complicity and revenge. At least, it is easy to presume that this is the final set.
Stephen King died at them
Stephen King died at them. On Sunday night I made my decision. I told Henry that hed have to take the Model T to school on Monday; I had to go to Hemingford Home and see Mr. Stoppenhauser at the bank about a shortie loan. A small one. Just 35 dollars. What for? Henry was sitting at the window and looking moodily out at the darkening West Field.
In "Big Driver," a cozy-mystery writer named Tess encounters the stranger along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book-club engagement. Violated and left for dead, Tess plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself.
"Fair Extension," the shortest of these tales, is perhaps the nastiest and certainly the funniest. Making a deal with the devil not only saves Dave Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.
When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. Itâ?s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.
Like Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight, which generated such enduring films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, Full Dark, No Stars proves Stephen King a master of the long story form.
