Quotes & Awards

  • “King’s prose is underrated—his diction is frequently witty and exact, his phrases neatly turned and apt.” 

    New York Times on Everything’s Eventual

  • “Fourteen stories, most of them gems, featuring an array of literary approaches, plus an opinionated intro from King about the ‘(Almost) Lost Art’ of the short story: this will be the biggest selling story collection of the year, and why not? No one does it better.” 

    Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Everything’s Eventual

  • “Not only do the action-based plots and engaging narratives hold up well within the realm of King’s work, but tales like the 1996 O. Henry Award-winning Nathaniel Hawthorne homage, ‘The Man in the Black Suit,’ show us King at his literary best. An added bonus for fans is King’s story-by-story annotation, in which he chronicles the event, thought, or image that served as his creative impetus. This is a milestone in compilations of King’s shorter works. Recommended for all popular fiction collections.” 

    Library Journal on Everything’s Eventual

  • “King remains strong in the short form.” 

    Kirkus Reviews on Everything’s Eventual

  • From the collection “Everything’s Eventual,” a #1 New York Times bestseller
