I've never read the original stories, but knowing them so well from the movie I would love to read how they originally were. Why were they never published in any of the short story collections? Was it because of rights issues or because it was felt they were already too overfamiliar because of the movie? I can't imagine they weren't deemed good enough, because then they weren't used for the movie either most likely. Is there any chance we will see them in a future collection? Sometimes these have older stories too that were used in a movie, like 'Cat From Hell' in 'Just After Sunset'. I hope they will be considered for a possible new collection if there is to be another one.
