I just ordered this old one after finding it on PBS, http://www.paperbackswap.com/Night-Shift-Excursions-Stephen-King/book/0451160452/.

 

I remember sleeping with the lights on in College after reading some of these short stories.

 

There is also a Horror forum, you might post there.

I just finished The Cellar by Richard Laymon, and it was really good. A quick read and a little disturbing, but that is why we read horror. There is a sequel to it, and I have it but haven't read it yet. I would also say John Saul and Jeffery Deaver are 2 of my favorite horror writers. Hope you find some you like.
