Best Stephen King books to read

If you're here for his genre-defining horror, then classic novels like The Shining and Salem's Lot are the perfect place to start. However, King's work is so much more than that. For a phenomenal, ambitious fantasy story, read The Gunslinger - book one of his Dark Tower series - or The Stand, a sweeping, post-apocalyptic thriller. He has also published short story collections, like Night Shift.

We should also draw attention to Stephen King's part-memoir, part-writing advice book, On Writing, which combines expert fiction-writing advice from one of the world's foremost masters with an honest, vulnerable look back at his own life.
