This post contains a complete list of all Stephen King short stories. The list is somewhat expanded to include all poetry and short fiction, including novellas.
Stephen King’s short fiction writing has been downright prolific. He continues to publish short stories or novellas multiple times per year, and when King was first published, the short story is the form that it took. If you are leaving short fiction out of your examination of Stephen King’s career, then you are missing a huge chunk of that career.
King’s short works include short stories, novellas, poetry, screenplays, plays, and even teleplays. Some were published but never collected as part of his several short fiction collections. Some were published and then incorporated into novels.
There are a lot of Stephen King websites. Some have been created and gone inactive. Some have histories over 20 years long. King started his career in writing over 20 years before the mainstreaming of the Internet. A wealth of free resources for learning more about King and his family exist on the Internet today. This page is meant to be an ongoing guide to those websites, blogs and podcasts. Each page will be listed below, along with a link and short description.
I am obviously not going to be able to list all worthy Stephen King websites on a first, second, or even third attempt. That is where my readers come in. If you see a website or blog that should be listed here, please either comment or email me at Aaron@StephenKingUniverse.com. If I find it worthy, I will include it here.
Stephen King’s first professionally published short story is 1967’s The Glass Floor. Any exhaustive review of Stephen King’s short fiction should begin with it. Startling Mystery Stories purchased it for inclusion in their Fall, 1967 edition. King recently turned 20 years old at publication, and he wrote it the summer before his 20th birthday. Impressive as it is to be professionally published at 20, The Glass Floor‘s publication history seems to indicate that King himself does not think highly of the story.
