Stephen King

Hi, and welcome to the Stephen King Uncollected Page! We're in the process of revamping the entire site and making it more user-friendly and more comprehensive. I've decided to seprate fiction and poetry into seperate categories, and to add a non-fiction section. WIth the advent of On Writing due out next year, I can't continue to ignore King's shorter non-fiction on this site any longer. People have a right to know!

I'm not including detailed descriptions of the stories listed herein. This page of the site is meant to be a shorthand resource, and, as well as something fun to pique your interest. (I know if I'd seen a list like this when I was just getting into King, I would have flipped!) In addition, though, I don't want to steal the thunder from two other books that deal with the subject of "hidden" King far better than I ever could.

Stephen Spignesi's The Lost Work of Stephen King is one of the best books on King, period. Released in 1998, this book covered nearly every uncollected (i.e., story not found in a King book) tale from his juvinilia written with Chris Chesney in the sixties all the way up to "Everything's Eventual," written in the late 90s. As usual, Spignesi's enthusiam and almost spooky breadth of knowledge makes the book an indispensible resource. The only drawback is the inevitable one - King keeps writing, and the book is now out of date. Some of the stories have since been collected (the collection Everything's Eventual was released after this), and King has of course continued to put stuff out that has yet to be anthologized. Still, books on King are bound to go out of date even before they hit bookstore shelves, and that's no reason to cast them aside (Stephen King: The Art of Darkness remains one of the best books on King, and it hasn't been updated since the mid-80s!) Kids, I highly recommend this and any other book by Spignesi, and if you don't own it, you're doing a disservice to yourself. Interested? Buy it here.

Titled Stephen King: Uncollected and Unpublished, this newer book updates and expands Spignesi's greatly. Newer to the King lit crit scene is Rocky Wood, a completist by nature (he's done three editions now of The Complete Guide to the Works of Stephen King - and he does mean complete). It's set up in an interesting style, going strictly alphabetical and discussing the particulars of the story as well as its publication. Best yet, two previously obscure King works - the poem "Dino" and a long excerpt from King's unpublished novel Sword in the Darkness - are included. Since the publication of Spignesi's book, a wealth of unpublished and uncollected Stephen King material has been uncovered, making this new book just as important. Rocky Wood and his contributors have done their homework, and it shows. A must-have. You can pick it up here.

Okay, enough pimping. Below is a list of all the uncollected Stephen King stuff I know about. As you can see, the fiction (including novels, stories, and poetry) is far more organized and complete than the nonfiction ... partially because King writes a lot of nonfiction. It is my goal to either streamline the nonfic section or simply try to track down every non-fic thing he's published. Which could take awhile. Meanwhile, enjoy the list, enjoy the hunt, and enjoy the stories.

    Cat From Hell, The

    I, for one, have no idea why King has kept this out of his collections. The story has existed since 1977, it's been re-released as recently as 1996. Originally King meant to write the first 500 words, but felt compelled to go further. It was made into a film version in Tales from the Dark Side, The Movie. He even mentions it in the "Notes" section of Skeleton Crew. Wherefore art thou, "Cat from Hell"?

    The Furnace

    A note on "The Furnace": like the earlier works "Skybar" and "The Cat From Hell," this is a story fragment rather than an actual story. King wrote only the first two paragraphs, with the indication that readers will finish the tale. Unlike "The Cat From Hell" (but very much like "Skybar"), King intends to not "finish" this story himself.

    The Plant

    This takes a bit of explanation. The Plant was King's original serial novel (okay, if you don't count "Dolan's Cadillac." Or The Gunslinger. But I digress.) The first three parts were sent out in lieu of Christmas cards in 1982, 1983, and 1985 (in '84, people got the Philtrum Press edition of The Eyes of the Dragon.) King dropped The Plant, unfinished, in '85, as he felt the plot was too similar to the film The Little Shop of Horrors.

    In 2000, King decided to ressurect The Plant as an e-book experiment, putting out one part per month over a series of months, for a cost of $1.00-$2.50 per download from his website. The first few parts merely copied the original (good for those who'd never read it) with editing, but the final parts really brough King readers something new and original.

    The Plant still isn't done. There were plans to ressurect the book in 2001 or 2002, but so far, no story. For an even more in-depth discussion of this curious book, check out my page on The Plant.

    No, this really shouldn't be on the short story page. I don't know why I keep it here. Maybe because it's still "Uncollected." Sue me.

    Quick note about "Skybar": King wrote the beginning and end of this story, with the intention that respondants to The Do-It-Yourself-Bestseller would write the middle. King did something similar with "The Cat From Hell," but unlike that story, King has never "finished" this one.
