Night Shift—Stephen King's first collection of stories—is an early showcase of the depths that King's wicked imagination could plumb. In these 20 tales, we see mutated rats gone bad (“Graveyard Shift”); a cataclysmic virus that threatens humanity (“Night Surf,” the basis for The Stand); a smoker who will try anything to stop (“Quitters, Inc.”); a reclusive alcoholic who begins a gruesome transformation (“Gray Matter”); and many more. This is Stephen King at his horrifying best.

Night Shift had some amazing stories, really creepy and weird at times. I remember seeing all the film adaptations of these stories in the 7th grade so it was great to read the stories that started them. Read full review
