Hi everyone! I'm a doctoral student, and am currently writing my dissertation. For my data, I want to use Stephen King's short stories. But since he wrote so many of them over the years, I need to limit myself to around twenty short stories. For that, I need your favour. Could you name your favourite Stephen King's short story, and, I you please, explain briefly why it is your favourite? Thanks beforehand. :)
