To be honest, I have copies of all of them already but want them collected in book form for ease of reading.

    By my count, only including new fiction material since Full Dark, No Stars, there have been 12 short stories and 3 poems:

    - Throttle (with Joe Hill)

    - Ur
    - Morality
    - Mostly Old Men (poem)
    - The Bone Church (poem)
    - Premium Harmony
    - Tommy (poem)
    - Herman Wouk is Still Alive
    - Under the Weather
    - Mile 81
    - The Little Green God of Agony
    - The Dune
    - In the Tall Grass (with Joe Hill)
    - A Face in the Crowd (with Stewart O'Nan)

    - Batman and Robin Have an Altercation

    Several of these are quite long and the collection would easily be larger than many of his most recent collections.

    Hey publisher! I want to pay money for stories I already own copies of. How crazy is that? Please indulge me.
    I'd eliminate the bolded because they're collaborations. Add the short story Afterlife Also, a couple older ones, such as Man with a Belly and The Night of the Tiger. Maybe three or four other new ones. That'd be 13-14 stories plus some poems. I'd love to see The Bone Church make a collection. Maybe that essay on guns as well?

    So, something like this:

    An Introduction
    Mostly Old Men: a poem
    Herman Wouk is Still Alive
    The Night of the Tiger
    Under the Weather
    Man with a Belly
    Tommy: a poem
    Mile 81
    The Dune
    (new story)
    Ur
    The Little Green God of Agony
    Premium Harmony
    (new story)
    Morality
    Guns: A Kindle Single
    Batman and Robin Have an Altercation
    The Bone Church: a poem
    Afterlife

    Some of the finest things I've ever experienced have come from Stephen King anthologies...bring 'em on!
