Rank or Rankle?

Gilbert Cruz at Vulture released his ranking of Stephen King’s entire oeuvre.  I spent my junior high years devouring most of King’s backlist; while I haven’t read all his books, I have read the majority of them.  My personal top ten novels (in order):

10)  Duma Key

9)  Pet Sematary

8)  Lisey’s Story

7)  The Talisman (with Peter Straub)

6)  The Green Mile

5)  Salem’s Lot

4)  The Stand

3)  Needful Things

2)  The Shining

1) IT

As for his short story collections, I think Nightmares & Dreamscapes is his best, followed closely by Skeleton Crew.  “The Reach” may be his most anthologized story, though my personal favorite is “The Man in the Black Suit.”
