The Stand, Drawing of the Three, The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon. Happy Birthday Steve-O. I have a degree in Literature & I am not ashamed to admit that he is one of my favorite writers.

The first 5 of the Gunslinger series, Eyes of the Dragon, The Talisman (w/Peter Straub I think), and the unedited Stand... the Shining, yes. And various short stories already mentioned.

1. The Dark Half
2. Needful Things
3. The Running Man (Technically a Bachmann book, but hugely better than the film and must have inspired The Hunger Games.)

Honorable mention for Geralds Game which really freaked me out.

His books got me through a really bad patch of depression and insomnia. Here's to many more years.

1. Carrie
2. Green Mile
3. Maximum overdrive

I have only watched his movies but do I get extra credit from being from his home state and seeing his house?

1. The Stand is my absolute favorite book by anyone, hands down.
2. The Long Walk
3. Most of The Dark Tower series. The Gunslinger and The Dark Tower are my least favorite of the series. You know, let's put most of The Dark Tower series and The Regulators and Desperation all at number three.

I love Stephen King, I have enjoyed everything I have read so far by him..If I had to choose my top three I would have to say 1.desperation/The regulators (I know two books,but I couldn't leave one out.) 2. Needfull Things 3. It is a toss up between cujo and pet semetary..and right now I'm in the process of reading Under the Dome.

Pet sematary..! I was about 8 years old when I first saw it. Back then my parents would let me and my brother watch friday the 13th, nightmare on elm st., and all the other classics. They never scared me, but that scene in pet sematary where the kid is under the bed and cuts the old mans ankle...It still creeps me out.

I am an avid reader but have never really seen the appeal of Mr. King. I hate to say it, but I've read several of his books that bored me nearly to tears. I did enjoy The Dark Tower and some of his other early works, but some of his later stuff just got too bogged down with descriptions and scenery to really hold my interest.

He's sort of like the literary Metallica for me. I keep wanting to give him another chance to be as great as he was in times past, but I always end up disappointed that I spent the time and money in the end.

*shrugs*

Just my $0.02 worth.

1- It
2 - The Tommyknockers
3 - Salems lot

List could go on and on, I agree with LordJim, may be past his best stuff now, but hell, he did some legendary stories

The Stand
The Tommyknockers
Chattery Teeth

For some reason that last one has stuck out in my mind for years.

King shines most, in my not-so-humble opinion, in his short-stories. Sure, the Dark Tower is great, but my favorite is probably "The Jaunt." What happens in that book is the closest thing to an actual hell that I could imagine.

The Stand.
Misery.
The Shining.

He's maybe no longer at his best, but he's one of the good guys. 'Thinner' was pretty good, too.
