My advice to long time King fans and newcomers alike is to skip these three Nightshift samplings, and to wait for a complete anthology. This collection, along with two others available from audible, were released in the mid 90s. They sound as if they were ripped directly from the old cassettes in some places, and this distracted me at times. Yes, Audible has the three volumes making up the old Bantom Doubleday Dell audio Nightshift collection, but be warned. A few stories from the anthology have never been published on audio before. Even if an audible customer were to purchase Gray Matter and other stories, Lawnmower Man and other stories, and Graveyard Shift and other stories, they'd be missing a few.The unincluded tales are I am the Doorway, One for the Road, Children of The Corn, and Trucks. Hopefully, Simon and Schuster will choose to give audiobook readers Nightshift in its entirety soon, including the prefatory matterial. They've recently released the complete Skeleton Crew anthology three or so days before this review was written, so I prefer to be optimistic.

Great! Enjoyed from start to finish! Definitely recommend it! Good for relaxing at home or being on the go. Will listen again.

These stories are OK, one or two are even pretty good. But they are not King's finest hour by any means. If you've read most of his other stuff they might be worth a look, but otherwise there's plenty of other more engaging books he's produced.
The stories are old-school in tone. They sound like (and probably were) written by King for publication in magazines to bring in some cash.
I understand they were some of the earliest material he wrote, so if you're interested in seeing where the great author started, you can see it here.
