The #1 New York Times bestseller and winner of the 1986 Locus Award for Best Collection, Skeleton Crew is "Stephen King at his best" (The Denver Post)—a terrifying, mesmerizing collection of stories from the outer limits of one of the greatest imaginations of our time.
"Wildly imaginative, delightfully diabolical...King once again proves to be the consummate storyteller" (The Associated Press).

A supermarket becomes the place where humanity makes its last stand against destruction. A trip to the attic becomes a journey to hell. A woman driving a Jaguar finds a scary shortcut to paradise. An idyllic lake harbors a bottomless evil. And a desert island is the scene of the most terrifying struggle for survival ever waged. This "wonderfully gruesome" collection (The New York Times Book Review) includes:

-"The Mist"
-"Here There Be Tygers"
-"The Monkey"
-"Cain Rose Up"
-"Mrs. Todd's Shortcut"
-"The Jaunt"
-"The Wedding Gig"
-"Paranoid: A Chant"
-"The Raft"- "Word Processor of the Gods"
-"The Man Who Would Not Shake Hands"
-"Beachworld"
-"The Reaper's Image"
-"Nona"
-"For Owen"
-"Survivor Type"
-"Uncle Otto's Truck"
-"Morning Deliveries (Milkman No. 1)"
-"Big Wheels: a Tale of the Laundry Game (Milkman No. 2)"
-"Gramma"
-"The Ballad of the Flexible Bullet"
-"The Reach"

King is best known for his iconic, immersive long novels, but he is also a master of the short story, and this is a magnificent collection.
