5.0 out of 5 stars Stephen King's First Florilegium Of Horror Tales Really Kept My Eyes Glued To The Pages.
By Andrew Reece on October 4, 2019
For those of you unversed in Stephen King's earlier works, Night Shift was his first foray into the realm of the Horror Story Compilation. It is essentially an amalgamation of various short stories that he had published in magazines throughout the 1970's, predominately Cavalier, a publication I have never heard of, but there's also a couple from Penthouse, as well as one from Cosmopolitan.

If you're a fan of Stephen King's later work, you've probably noted that those novels have outcomes which are, more often than not, of a positive nature, overall.

The stories featured in Night Shift take a different path, usually ending with a result that is of a much darker species.

I reviewed the Mass Market Paperback format, because, well, I like a small paperback novel that I can take with me. Plus, I liked the cover art and overall design of the Mass Market edition better than the others I saw online. Now, onto the stories.

I'm not going to expound and elucidate on EVERY minute facet of every single story in this book, opting for a more judicious use of your time as you read this review. I'll light on the higher-quality examples as I saw them, but take into account that I enjoyed ALL of the tales featured in Night Shift.

Jerusalem's Lot is a fantastic revisiting into the terrifying setting for the indelible vampire novel 'Salem's Lot, giving a possible origin as to how and why the place is haunted, and it was revisited (much to my delight) in the penultimate story, One for the Road.

You have Night Surf, which is supposed to be a prequel to The Stand, but it might have been the story I liked the least in the set. Children of the Corn is the basis for the movie with the same title, but it didn't grab me as much as the others, so I probably won't see the movie.

Grey Matter is wondrously terrifying, and it made me think of Jeff Goldblum's performance in The Fly.

I am the Doorway is truly a disturbing yarn, and it left my skin crawling, simply because I found it SO unsettling.

The Ledge was possibly my favorite of the bunch, because it's about a guy who's in love with a woman who's married to a very nasty and powerful guy, and he just does not give up, there's some pretty crazy sequences in this one. The story is actually featured in a movie I have not seen, entitled Cat's Eye, but after reading this story, I plan on it.

The Lawnmower Man was the basis for the movie, of the same title (I've never seen it), but I liked the story nonetheless.

Quitters, Inc. was absolutely hilarious! The absurdly ridiculous notion of an organization that helps their customers quit smoking by utilizing methods that would probably be appropriate in a Totalitarian Dictatorship had me laughing and shaking my head at Stephen King's mastery of his chosen trade. And with how dark the tone & atmosphere of Night Shift is, I enjoyed the few amusing moments to be found here.

The Last Rung on the Ladder was a horribly sad, despondent story that just had me feeling positively wretched after I finished it.

All in all, I LOVED Night Shift. I think it reflects a truly dark side of Stephen King, as he was in his earlier years. I think the prospective reader/purchaser should take note of the fact that these aren't stories that have many positive vibes, (if any), like his more recent novels do. They are shadowy reflections of the dark side of humanity, and the ones that are most frightening are those that could actually happen, because they involve human beings doing things that are completely grounded in reality.

Five out of Five Star Rating, no question here.
