    I like his early reads best, however, guilty of not reading most recent and need to catch up. My Mother has most to all of his books, so I just need to go to her library.

    •1978-The Stand (linked into The Dark Tower series) is perhaps my favorite, not so short novel. The Stand takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where most of the human population is dead by the hand of a man-made biological virus/weapon. An oracle’s dreams draws a group of survivors together to rebuild society..but takes a turn.

    I enjoyed the drama of •1987 - 'Misery" too..About a women who is completely off her rocker, the movie with James Caan and Kathy Bates (who won an Oscar for this role).

    I must say the movie was not near as good or as disturbing as the book though.

    Like the following too...

    •1977 - The Shining

    •1981 - Cujo- Book has different ending..

    The books seem to be better than the movies..

    Can't pick one, two, three or I'll stop

    I liked all his books really, but his first 'Carrie' was perhaps my favourite.Don't remember seeing any short stories.
