Everything’s Eventual Audiobook: 14 Dark Tales
The acclaimed #1 New York Times and undisputed King of Horror Stephen King offers another spine-tingling compilation of short stories sure to keep a listener up late at night.
The first collection of stories Stephen King has published since Nightmares & Dreamscapes, Everything’s Eventual includes one O. Henry Prize winner, two other award winners, four stories published by The New Yorker, and “Riding the Bullet,” King’s original e-book, which attracted over half a million online readers and became the most famous short story of the decade.
“Riding the Bullet” is the story of Alan Parker, who’s hitchhiking to see his dying mother but takes the wrong ride, farther than he ever intended. In “Lunch at the Gotham Café,” a sparring couple’s contentious lunch turns very, very bloody when the maître d’ gets out of sorts. “1408” is about a successful writer whose specialty is “Ten Nights in Ten Haunted Graveyards” or “Ten Nights in Ten Haunted Houses,” and though Room 1408 at the Dolphin Hotel doesn’t kill him, he won’t be writing about ghosts anymore. And in “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is In French,” terror is déjà vu at 16,000 feet.
Whether writing about encounters with the dead, the near dead, or about the mundane dreads of life, from quitting smoking to yard sales, Stephen King is at the top of his form in the fourteen dark tales assembled in Everything’s Eventual. Intense, eerie, and instantly compelling, they announce the stunningly fertile imagination of perhaps the greatest storyteller of our time.
In the introduction to the audiobook, King describes the unusual method he used to sort the stories:
“What I did was take all the spades out of a deck of cards plus a joker. Ace to King = 1-13. Joker = 14. I shuffled the cards and dealt them. The order in which they came out of the deck became the order of the stories, based on their position in the list my publisher sent me. And it actually created a very nice balance between the literary stories and the all-out screamers. I also added an explanatory note before or after each story, depending on which seemed the more fitting position. Next collection: selected by Tarot.”

“I want to make you laugh or cry when you read a story… or do both at the same time. I want your heart, in other words. If you want to learn something, go to school.”
14 dark tales from the Master of Horror. From a serious case of deja-vu 16,000 feet in the air to a moving picture that becomes deadly, King delivers stories brimming with imagination and terror.
Overall, this collection was a winner for me!” – Johann.
“I kept picking this up & reading a tale or two at a time. Each time I did this, I was struck by the way in which King brings a certain quality to his writing that just plain makes him better than most. He brings a certain assumption of the intelligence of his readers and gives us credit for being able to pick up the dark humor, the allusions, and the ironies he weaves. He has a unique ability to construct setting and characters so quickly and seamlessly that we have an instant picture in our mind and an opinion beginning to form. All within the limits of a short story with nothing sacrificed.” – Dave Moore.
