Night Shift (short story collection)

Night Shift is the first collection of short stories by Stephen King, first published in 1978. In 1980, Night Shift received the Balrog Award for Best Collection, in 1979 it was nominated as best collection for the Locus Award and the World Fantasy Award. Many of King's most famous short stories were included in this collection; the book was King's fifth published book. Nine of the twenty short stories in the book had first appeared in various issues of Cavalier Magazine from 1970–1975; the stories "Jerusalem's Lot", "Quitters Inc.", "The Last Rung on the Ladder", "The Woman in the Room" appeared for the first time in this collection. Night Shift is the first book; the introduction was written by one of John D. MacDonald. With the publication of Night Shift and the rise in King's popularity as a best-selling author with the success of Brian De Palma's motion picture adaptation of Carrie, student film and theatre makers began to submit requests to King to make adaptations of the stories that appeared in the collection.

King formed a policy he deemed the Dollar Deal, which allowed the students the permission to make an adaptation for the consideration of just $1. In the 1980s, entrepreneurial film producer Milton Subotsky purchased the rights to six of the stories in this collection with the intention to produce feature films and a television anthology based on multiple stories. Although Subotsky was involved with several King adaptations the television series never came to fruition due to conflicts with the networks' Standards and Practices; the following is a list of film, television or theatre adaptations made from the stories collected in Night Shift: Children of the Corn Hal Roach Studios, Inc. directed by Fritz Kiersch Cat's Eye Dino De Laurentiis Productions/MGM/UA directed by Lewis Teague Maximum Overdrive De Laurentiis Entertainment Group directed by Stephen King Graveyard Shift Paramount Pictures directed by Ralph S.
