Stephen King celebrates his 66th birthday today and I thought it would be cool to list ten of my favorite books of his. Yes, I have his entire body of work. Yes, I have ’em all in original editions with original cover jacket and all. A few of them don’t have cover jackets, though. I have collected every Stephen King book over the years but the only one I’m missing is, “Danse Macabre”, which that one is hard to find the original edition of. It wasn’t easy for me to collect his entire body of work as most of his books are so old and rare now.
I’m looking forward to his upcoming new book, “Doctor Sleep”, which is the sequel to the Shining.
Anyway, here are my top 10 favorite Stephen King books in no particular order:
- The Dark Tower Series (all of them)
- Needful Things
- The Green Mile
- The Dark Half
- Under the Dome
- Nightmares and Dreamscapes (his best short story collection)
- The Shining
- Lisey’s Story
I like all of his books, of course, but those ones I listed are my favorite. Happy Birthday, Stephen. I’m sure he and his wife Tabitha are enjoying it somewhere in Maine.

The Stand! You’ve gotta have The Stand on here.
I agree, you have to put “The Stand” on there. Also if you have that one in your collection (you probably do) then get the unabridged version as well. It contains a bunch that the original publisher made him take out to shorten it up.
