    Default About time for another new collection?

    I realize that Just After Sunset and Full Dark, No Stars are both fairly recent, but it seems to me that Mr. King has really been publishing a lot of stories lately, even more than usual, as well as several poems. Am I right to suspect another collection by the end of 2012?

    I think it would be cool if he did this one like Nightmares and Dreamscapes and include stories, poems, and essays side by side. Like this:

    Short stories:

    The Crate (from 1982, but collected last year as part of an anthology)
    Ur
    Throttle
    Premium Harmony
    Herman Wouk is Still Alive
    Under the Weather
    Blockade Billy
    Morality

    Poems:
    Mostly Old Men
    Tommy
    The Bone Church

    Essay:

    Cone Head (uncollected New Yorker piece from 2002)

    I'm not aware of any plans for another collection anytime soon. Chances are good that one will be done eventually, though.

    Seems like it might be getting closer to another short story collection. Maybe sometime in 2012 if we are lucky. I really hope he includes The Crate even though it is older. I've updated your list to include his 2011 output.

    Short stories:

    The Crate (from 1982, but collected last year as part of an anthology)
    Ur
    Throttle
    Premium Harmony
    Herman Wouk is Still Alive
    Under the Weather
    Blockade Billy
    Morality
    Mile 81
    Dune

    It would definitely be nice to see all the short stories that haven't gotten their own release, bundled together. I mean, I understand the reason for including a new short story with a newly released paperback edition, or the digital edition, but it would be nice to see them put together in a hardcover edition, for those that don't want to spend additional money on a paperback or digital edition of a book they already own.

    yay...another collection sometime soon!

    and that means an update to the website, right? Am I right in assuming that comments can be made on the other main site, but not here, on the message board, about the list of stories/poems, etc, in the opener? ....or wait, I think Blockade Billy and maybe Ur have their own, dedicated pages....but not ALL of them.

    When there actually is another collection ready for publication, we will update the site.
