A Stephen King Bibliography of Fictional Works

Today is the birthday of one of my favorite authors, Stephen King! Happy birthday Mr. King!

Once upon a time, I attempted to read all of his books in one year, and failed spectacularly, completing only nine. Something I’ve learned on this journey? Stephen King creates heavy subject matter. From his longest novel to his shortest story, his content can be deeply disturbing or incredibly touching. I continue to make steady progress, and someday soon I will complete them all, but I need a little time after each book to digest what I’ve read.

! Please note, I recommend Stephen King’s books for adults. I would not recommend reading his books to children !

Here is a complete list of Stephen King’s fictional novels, organized in chronological order by earliest publication to the most recent. If my research is correct, he has published 68 complete fictional novels to date, including 12 collections that range from 4 to 24 stories each. I’ve marked the ones I’ve read with an asterisk *.
