Stephen King Short Stories: A Complete List

short-stories-facebook-1-5908b4b33a40f-1024x535 Stephen King Short Stories: A Complete List

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.

King’s short fiction has also in several cases been adapted as mainstream films, such as Children of the Corn and The Mangler.

King also has a running offer to students of film seeking to practice their craft in the form of Dollar Babies. So long as the filmmaker will agree that the film produced will not see professional distribution or publication on the Internet, they may produce a film adapting one of King’s short stories for the low, low price of one dollar.

The information listed below will include the name of the story, where and when it was first published (that is, if it was published at all), and information as to whether it was later collected in a short story collection, such as Night Shift.

In some rare instances, a short story later became part of a novel or novella. Where this is the case, I have made note of it.

This list will be regularly updated as new discoveries of published or unpublished material is made, as well as when new stories see publication.

I have previously written a review of King’s first professionally published work of short fiction, The Glass Floor (1967). There are several other pieces of short fiction King wrote before The Glass Floor, but none of them were professionally published. I may or may not write about these stories at a later date, but nevertheless, they are listed below.

When you see the dates below, it is important to remember that Stephen King was born on September 21, 1947. This means that he wrote the stories listed below starting at only the age of 11 or 12. King has been practicing his craft for at least 58 years.

Let’s get on with it.
