Novellas are also valid. The Ballad of the Flexible Bullet comes into mind.

The Lawnmower Man (one of the most surreal, bizarre, and creepy stories I’ve ever read)
Children of the Corn
The Library Policeman
Word Processor of the Gods
Fair Extension
Cain Rose Up
I Know What You Need

  • This would be a subjective topic, so anyone covering this topic would have to explain with great detail why they are the best. – Ryan Errington 7 years ago
  • I would be good to talk about how influential the stories have become throughout the years. Children of the Corn has become one of his most recognizable work, but how popular has stories like Fair Extension and The Library Policeman been? – Aaron Hatch 7 years ago
  • I'd love to hear why these short stories made this list. What makes them stand out? – aallen8 7 years ago
  • Could always just talk about the ones that made it to film. So: The Body, A Good Marriage, Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption, 1408, etc. – Kristian Wilson 7 years ago
  • COuld relate each story to Stephen King's path in life e.g discussing the quality of some think like Dreamcatchers in relation to his status of writing whilst high on Morphine after his car accident. – Thomas Munday 7 years ago
