At the time of writing he has well over short stories published across six different collections and that's before you even get started on his novellas, which definitely warrant a separate post of their own. From terrifying grandmothers to murderous chattery teeth, I've picked out 13 of my favourite King short stories below, broken down by the collection you can find them in.
While helping clear out the cluttered basement of a large textile mill, a group of men discover a nest of rats. Big rats.
This may be one of Stephen King's earliest short stories, but it's also one of his best. And you know it's not going to be good. As well as being a quick and eerie read, this tale also has one of my favourite last lines of any King short story. Some people would argue the ending is a bit predictable, but in this case I don't think it matters too much; the description is great, and the parting words are enough to send a shiver down your spine. A guilt-ridden man remembers a game he played with his little sister in their family barn when they were children.
Fair warning: this one's a tear-jerker. It's also the first of five stories on this list that don't actually contain any supernatural elements.
Really this story is an excellent example of King's command of language; many people think of him as a great storyteller, but he's also a great writer who knows how to create raw emotion with the simple power of words — or in this case, a repeated sentence. Another poignant read, another tale rooted in the real world, and — the main reason I'm including it in this list — another story with an ending that's really stuck with me. The dialogue in the final scene with the main character's mother is achingly sad, and even the thought of the last two lines is enough to make me well up.
A group of four friends go night swimming in a lake, only to get trapped on the wooden raft by a mysterious creature. Tense situations in which characters are stuck in a cramped location is something Stephen King does very, very well. In a sense The Raft is like a much more compact version of Cujo or Misery — but instead of a rabid dog or a psychopathic nurse, the antagonist is a shadowy, unknown shape in the water.
It's a concept that could be sort of naff in the wrong hands, but in King's hands it's a suspenseful and lightning-fast page-turner. A future in which scientists have discovered a way to teleport people between planets. The story revolves around a father telling his children how "jaunting" was first discovered as they prepare for a family trip to Mars.
In short it's a fun, mysterious concept with a spectacularly horrible ending. The grim reason people have to be put to sleep while "jaunting" is revealed through a series of experiments recounted by the father, and the fact you sort of know something is going to go wrong doesn't make the ending any less shocking. A small boy has to stay home alone to keep watch over his bedridden grandmother, who he's always been scared of. As the story progresses, we find out he has good reason to be afraid. Stephen King is at his best when he's writing from the perspective of children.
Somehow he's got a real knack for capturing the fears that everyone has when they're growing up, and Gramma is the perfect example of this. The story is genuinely unnerving, and the character of George's grandmother is nightmarishly well-drawn. A man kidnaps a small boy outside a supermarket.
As he flees across the country in his car, he begins to realise there's something not quite right about the child. She's kind of excited, she didn't have any friends and never had any before. She squealed excitedly, going home to write and drink some non-alcoholic Butter Rum. She hurried inside, making some of the delicious, warm liquid and getting out a very old, leather book her grandfather gave to her upon his death bed.
She began to write poetry.

I thought it was perhaps one of the men who also had to excuse themselves from the crowd however the person up ahead was moving funny. I was trying to find the bathroom but the first one took me outside.
May I blossom, bloom and resemble June this bright and sunny morrow. She smiled and scribbled a few happy faces and suns with excitement. She then remembered the first and last entry made by her grandfather and read it. His chattering Teeth, his gruesome deceit and his torn up, dirtied sail.
The storm will pour upon his ship as he'll scream and curse the sky. She will fall, take the toll. And she shall never die. Deep in the depths of the unknown lays a place Candle Cove. She looked confused and then looked up Fake websites, a wiki and a song came up. She decided to listen to the song while reading the wiki. She read it for a long time until she heard a knock at the door. She went to answer it.
She went back and got her headphones and phone, her book, pencil and her report then put them in her old satchel. The boy grins.
I'll show you. He leads you all to a cave. She then notices a glistening object on the ground and picks it up.
It looks like a very old collar with a metal bone dangling off of it. She eventually was lost in the darkness. She headed towards the air and saw light, going nearer and nearer to it before she saw the lake below and was pushed into it.
