What is your favorite King short story or novella? Your least favorite?

Gosh a favorite is really hard to pick when there are so many to choose from but okay right off the top of my head I thought of Quitters Inc. out of Night Shift. It is badass. It's about this guy who decides on a whim, after hearing about the place from an old friend,  to go check out this new company that promises to help you quit smoking. It turns out that it works but at a great cost. It's so fucking badass. Read it. :)

My least favorite off the top of my head is Umney's Last Case out of Nightmares & Dreamscapes. It just doesn't hold my interest. It's not a bad story...not at all...like I said it just doesn't hold my personal interest. It's about a private detective from the 1930s whose life is falling apart who meets the crime fiction author who created him. He ends up in 1994 trying to take revenge on the author and get back to where he belongs. I think what doesn't do it for me is just the old school private detective stuff. I've never been into those and the writing is like that for a lot of the story. Again, not bad, just not my cup of tea.

Day One | Day Two | Day Three | Day Four | Day Five | Day Six | Day Seven | Day Eight | Day Nine | Day Ten | Day Eleven | Day Twelve | Day Thirteen | Day Fourteen | Day Fifteen | Day Sixteen | Day Seventeen | Day Eighteen | Day Nineteen | Day Twenty | Day Twenty One | Day Twenty Two | Day Twenty Three | Day Twenty Four | Day Twenty Five | What's up next
