Night Shift, copyright 1978 by Stephen King
"Night Shift" is a collection of short stories sure to give you the shivers...and don't read them alone on a dark stormy night.....
Jerusalem's Lot: This story is a great introduction to the terrifying Novel Salem's Lot.
Graveyard Shift: "RATS"....WE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' RATS!!!
Night Surf: Captain Trips strikes but you won't find these sinister teens in "The Stand".
I Am The Doorway: Look into my eyes, er, I mean my hands...
The Mangler: Can a demon inhabit something as ordinary as a mangler? Read on to find out.
The Boogeyman: This was perhaps the story that scared me the most in "Night Shift". A childhood fear comes to life. Are you SURE there's no boogeyman in your closet?
Gray Matter: Could it be the beer? Be prepared to be grossed out.
Battleground: Be careful what kind of toys you buy your kids...
Trucks: If your car came to life, would it remember how kindly you took care of it? My advice, keep it well-tuned, washed and waxed and speak to it gently. This short story was made into a movie.
Sometimes They Come Back: Sometimes they do come back...and sometimes they stay. This short story was made into a movie.
Strawberry Spring: Who could be the killer?
The Ledge: This story is sort of a..."balancing act", beware of evil pigeons.

Quitters, Inc.: A little organization that provides the incentive needed to help you quit smoking.
I Know What You Need: Um, no ya don't.
Children of the Corn: "He Who Walks Behind the Rows" is coming, and he's not bringing corn on the cob. This short story was made into a movie.
The Last Rung on the Ladder: A story of heart, loss of faith and trust.
The Man Who Loved Flowers: Norma, I brought you some tea-flowers....Norma?
One For The Road: Salem's Lot strikes again.
The Woman in the Room: When you love somebody, how long can you see them suffer?
