My Pick: The Breathing Method by Stephen King
This is the last novella in the collection Different Seasons by Stephen King. It's the only one of the four that has not been made into a movie. It had potential of being made really creepy if they had developed the back story of the old club where the gentlemen told their tales. That place had potential, as did the mysterious library. Instead, the story built up to a tale that fell short of the mark of being scary.
My Pick: The Lottery and Seven other stories by Shirley Jackson
This collection of short stories by Shirley Jackson was perfectly creepy. She wasn't an element of horror in these, with the exception of The Lottery. These were more the creepiness of everyday encounters of racism, isolationism, social anxiety etc... Jackson had a way to make everything suspenseful in the most subtle way. I really would like to read more of her short works.
The stories are "The Lottery", "Flower Garden", "Come Dance with Me in Ireland", "Men with Their Big Shoes", "Trial by Combat", "Pillar of Salt", "Like Mother Used to Make", and "Colloquy".
