If You Like Stephen King Books, You’ll Love…

Stephen King Synopses: The Shining is the a psychological horror novel about an alcoholic author (Jack Torrance) who moves his family to a hotel in Colorado. Soon afterward, Jack’s son Danny begins to experience supernatural phenomenons. The Shining was famously made into a movie by director Stanley Kubrick in 1980. It starred Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.

In Misery, author Paul Sheldon finds himself in the middle of a snowstorm while driving through the mountains. When he wakes up, he is in the home of Annie Wilkes – an ex-nurse and avid reader of Sheldon’s work. Annie is able to nurse the injured author back to health, but she begins to show herself as something other than just a good Samaritan. Misery was adapted into a film directed by Rob Reiner and starred James Caan and Kathy Bates.

    this is helpful, but what i am really trying to find is a list of all his fiction in order of when they are supposed to happen, not the order that he wrote them. like for instance The Body takes place in 1960 and It starts in 1958, so the Novel It would be before The Body on the list. anyone have a list like that?

      Update: These two books are NOT by the Stephen King listed above. They are super misleading. Both covers just say Stephen King. But they are from an author named Stephen R. King. Pretty shady…

      It looks like they have it listed under short stories as Silver Bullet. That was the film title, didn’t think it was published as such. At any rate, mine is Cycle of the Werewolf too!

    I’m reading The Dark Half. The last time I read it was probably 15 years ago and it’s surprising to me just how good it is. It’s so well done, in particular the writing style between chapters to capture the personality of whomever the focus is.
