Read them all. My favorites are "It", "Needful Things", and "The Stand".... although I have to say that "Christine" was the one that freaked me out the most for some reason :P He is as master at psychological horror.. no, he is THE master at it.

I have read many of them, I will not list them because I would probably be ashamed.

Stephen King is not a hugely intelligent writer, nor does he write incredible books that are really meaty. But he is enjoyable and he is great at horror. I've enjoyed every book.

"It" was an outstanding read.
Gunslinger series was ok....I kinda got bored of it at about book 5. First few weren't bad though.
The Stand was another amazing one.
Salem's Lot was pretty good.
Blegh, blanking. Haven't really read stephen king for a few years now-can't think of any others that really stood out =[

Saw Rose Red. My sisters freaked out at it, but I personally found it to be absolutely boring. Haven't seen any others.

It
The Tommyknockers
4 Past Midnight
Some of the dark tower stuff

I read "it" when I was really too young to be reading books like that, but it had a big impact on me in a positive way, I think. The whole concept of a group of kids joining together to face their fears helped me have more courage.

But then all of a sudden there's a giant turtle? WTF?

I'm in the middle of Hearts in Atlantis. A great book for any fan of any novel ever.

Oh, and I am reading Gerald's Game. That one is "fun".

Only one I can remember is the short story about quitting smoking.

He also lives in the same State as me :D. His son also writes I think...

I've read them all.

I'll take the middle 80% of Wizard And Glass. Which is to say, minus the bookends, that is a ripping yarn.

The Stand is probably my favorite. I've also read Under the Dome and a bunch of his short stories. I tried to get into the Dark Tower series but I lost interest 2/3 of the way into the first book (I keep hearing it gets better so maybe I'll give it another shot).

As soon as I have time I want to read Salems' Lot and The Colorado Kid (I've been watching Haven which is based on it).

I agree completely that you have to push through The Gunslinger. That series picks up a lot with The Drawing of the Three. Essentially, the three who are drawn are awesome characters.

Night Shift, a bunch of short stories together, was the best.

Especially The Boogeyman Story, that gave me the chills real bad.

Here's the full plot of it if you want to ruin the good spoilers and twist at the end if you would like to.

The Shining wasn't all that great of a book, but I liked the movie!

I've read:
-Dark Tower Series
-It
-Christine
-Cujo
-Salem's Lot
-Bag of Bones
-The one where the woman is chained to a bed, can't remember the title
-Desperation
-The Stand

My favorite is probably a tie between the second Dark Tower book and Salem's Lot.

The only Stephen King book that I have read is
-Cell
I liked it, but I didn't see it as anything that blew my mind away.

I've watched the movie The Stand, and I've read part of the book, though like most Stephen King books I couldn't finish it.
I really don't like Stephen King as an author. He can write a good book, include plot twists that'll blow your mind, and everything, but I can't stand the block after block of descriptive text. It drives me insane how he doesn't just cut to the chase, and he has to describe everything.
I agree, he is an amazing writer. He's good at it.
His style just isn't to my tastes.
M-o-o-n, that spells Stephen King.
