    He's amassing enough stories now to fill a new collection. C'mon Stephen put them all together now.

    It is getting close, but with Doctor Sleep already on the docket, it won't be until late 2013 at best.

    I just heard the story will be entitled "In the Tall Grass" and will be in two consecutive issues of Esquire.

    That's 10! Sounds like a new collection to me. So what's this new volume to be called and when will CD's S/L be released?

    I'm thinking about picking up esquire and any magazines going forward. Not sure If I can't get it here. Couldn't find esquire in the grocery store anyway. Took a look thinking I'd come back at get it when its out. Maybe Walmart?

    I don't think 10 stories is quite enough. "Sunset" was 13, and N. was a novella.

    There is also The Crate, which was in Shivers VI of course, but not in any of his anthologies.

    Also, it seems Bev has a typo as I thought it was Morality, not Mortality, lol. That one was also included in the trade edition of Blockade Billy

    Three more and it should be enough for a collection. Come on Stephen, pump out three more, Maestro!

    What I think is interesting is how quickly he's reaching the point where he could do another collection. I don't think he's published this many short stories in such a small window of time since the 70s and early 80s?

    Well, he did say that editing the "Year's Best Short Story" collection a few years ago re-energized his interest in short stories. He's one of the many that are upset that the markets are dwindling and the short story form almost seems to be on its last legs, so I think he's doing what he can to help keep interest high.

    I would also like to see his story "Weeds" (the basis for Creepshow's The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill"). It's only been published twice, both times in men's magazines. I don't think it's ever been published anywhere else.

    If the crate was not in a collection then how did I manage to read it already?

    I would assume in Shivers 6, unless you happen to own July 1979 issue of Gallery maybe?
