    What I learned from Night Shift: It ain't easy to quit smoking. That I know what you need. That I am the doorway. That he walks behind the rows. That sometimes they come back. It ain't over in 'Salem's Lot. Don't drink bad beer. Get off your ass and mow your own lawn, goddam...

    These are short stories (though not novellas) which actually serve as delectable intros to popular King mythologies (for a staggering example see [or better yet, don't {with the exception of "Trucks" a.k.a. "Maximum Overdrive" for B-level entertainment and "Children of the Corn" with i...

    6.0 stars. On my list of "All Time Favorite" books and second only to Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman as my favorite short story collection of all time. All of the stories are excellent and it is hard to pick favorites in this collection but I would say "Boogeyman", "Strawberry Spring", ...

    Make you pee your pants scary! In his introduction to Skeleton Crew, Stephen King writes: ?a good long novel is in many ways like having a long and satisfying affair? whereas the short story ?is like a quick kiss in the dark from a stranger.? My literary proclivities defini...

    ?El umbral de la noche? (Night Shift, 1978), fue la primera antologa publicada por el maestro del terror Stephen King. Si bien me gusta ms el King en las distancias largas, se nota su saber hacer en estos relatos. Y es que King es un gran narrador. Estos son los veinte relat...

    Over the years I?ve struggled with short story collections as I?m very much a long-form kind of guy. I especially dislike the start/stop of short story collections ? you get invested in a character or a story and in fifteen or twenty pages it?s done. Kind of like driving down a...

    Note to self: do not read ANYTHING written by Stephen King after dark. Nothing. Not even if it happens to be comedy, or non-fiction, or freaking poetry. Haven?t you been traumatized enough? You can?t see a clown without pissing yourself! Not that it?s hard to scare me though. I?...

    This might sound a little strange but I think that this collection is a work of art. I'd put this right up alongside Chekhov and Poe. If you ever wondered why people make such a big deal out of Stephen King, I think his talents are fully on display here. King has a great abilit...

    Usually short-story collections, especially by the same author, always tend to garner a three from me: because they are almost always a mix of the good, the bad and the indifferent, and follows the bell-shaped curve of the normal distribution. But not this one. These collection of earl...

    Night Shift is perhaps the essential short horror story collection. While I was reading this for the third or fourth time, a friend commented that this is also a terrific example of King's writing before he bacame a household name. And I agree. These stories are gory, frightening, and ...

    Overall ? I really liked the first story, but after that the stories really seemed to taper off quite a bit until I got to Battleground. After that one, my interested was piqued and the book continued at a high level through The Ledge and on to the end with a few exceptions here and ...

    First read this collection when I was... twenty, I think. Not sure. Does it matter? Probably not. Three things to mention before hitting you with my one sentence reviews: I forgot how much of King's early work tied into these stories, and how much I enjoyed his non-horror outings. Trut...

    I am stunned to admit that, at 25 years old, having been a fan of all things in the horror world for my entire life, I have only just now completed my very first Stephen King novel. I DNFed his books so many times in my teen years because his writing just wasn't for me. I appreciate hi...

    Audiobook - Narrated by John Glover - Good narration. John Glover did a really good job with these stories. Jerusalem's Lot, which I didn't really enjoy when I read it, came to life with Glover. The only slight criticism I have is that the female characters voices in Night Surf...

    Also posted at my blog: https://killerscorpion.wordpress.com/... I find it really difficult to review short stories, especially anthologies. Night Shift is a collection of King's short stories, and if I'm not mistaken, this is a collection of the first short stories he wrote in his ...

    ** The Stephen King Goodreads Discussion Group is doing a re-read of his works from the beginning to the end. It?s been a long time since I have really immersed myself in Uncle Stevie?s world, but a rate of a book a month, I am all in. My goal is to read and review each one with as...

    I'm kind of torn on this collection. I think that every story had a good initial idea behind it, but many of them unfortunately lacked a good execution. I often felt that something was just missing...There was no problem with the writing style, these stories just didn't excite me very ...

    Some of the absolute best writing I have ever read. I think of another story in connection to this one. On my drive to work I listen to books on CD but have a hard time paying a lot of attention because traffic is bad in Cincinnati. I heard something in ?Duma Key? that makes ...

    As I continue my Stephen King binge, I seem to be leaning more towards his short story collections. As I've said before Stephen King is one of the best short story writers around. Night Shift was a bit of a mixed bag but there were way more great stories then bad ones. My favo...

    This is by far my favourite collection of King stories that I've read so far! I absolutely loved every single one of them, they each creeped me out in there own ways! There were definitely a few that spooked me more than others though. The Mangler, The Boogeyman and The Lawnmower Man w...

    Many readers consider this book to be one of Stephen King's most popular short story collections, and I can't disagree with that opinion ... mostly because it's only the second anthology by King I have read so far. Many original horror stories are included in this collection, with most...

    Mr. Stephen King, you started scaring me when I was just a teen, then you go and try to do it again when I?m older, and often none-the-wiser. The best part: you can still do it. Not all of the 20 stories in Night Shift (his first short story collection) are terribly frightening. Some...

    In this book we are treated to much of Stephen King's earliest published writing, a full 10 stories (half of this book), were released in magazines, before his first novel, Carrie, was set loose on us. I was pleasantly surprised by these early works, as it seems to me King is not ...

    "Let's talk, you and I. Let's talk about fear." Night Shift was Stephen King's first short story collection, released way back in 1978 and it contains quite a lot of his more popular short stories that ended up becoming movies. The prime examples being Children of the Corn and Somet...
