Stephen King's Latest

Normally, I don't read Stephen King. However, his latest book of two novellas and two short stories, Full Dark, No Stars, caught my attention. It's a darker version of Stephen King and I like it. At the end of the book, he tells where, how and what gave him the idea for each story which is almost as interesting as the works themselves. Oddly enough, one of them was inspired by Wisconsin Death Trip which was a Masters thesis written by Michael Lesy in the 70s that was later turned into book. This same book also inspired A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick 
Odder still is that I have a First Edition copy of Wisconsin Death Trip which I purchased long before either of these books came out. I have spent hours poring over it and thinking to myself, I know there's a story in here. It seems that I'm not the only one to have such a thought.
Anyway, back to Stephen. I really admire his work ethic in regard to writing. There is no denying his success or his output. He has a personal goal of twenty pages a day. (I would have a brain aneurism if I tried that.) However successful his looooong novels are, I think his best writing comes in the form of short stories or novellas.
What's your opinion?
