I've decided I'm going to finally read some of his books. Problem is I can't decide where to begin.
Anybody have any suggestions which I should read first?
Yes, I reccommend in this order:
Nightshift (But that's multiple stories)
The Stand (Big book)
The Dead Zone
Danse Macabre (Just a Non-Fiction story about horror.)
Creepshow (Comic Book)
The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger
Different Seasons (novellas)
Pet Sematary (Hard To Understand Sometimes.)
Cycle of A Werewolf
The Talisman (Written by Peter Straubs Though.)
Skeleton Crew (multiple stories.)
The Bachman Books (novel collection)
IT (A big book like the Stand, but most enjoyable.)
The Eyes of the Dragon (Apart from a Horror.)
The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three
Nightmares in the Sky (Photo book with text.)
The Dark Half
Dolan's Cadillac (limited edition)
My Pretty Pony (limited edition) Can't Get These Two anymore unless a rare copy from a past owner pops up on Ebay.
The Stand: The Complete & Uncut Edition (Only if you liked the original Stand.)
Four Past Midnight (Multiple stories)
The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands
Nightmares & Dreamscapes (Multiple stories)
Umney's Last Case
The Green Mile
Six Stories (Six Stories.)
The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass
Bag of Bones
