The Lottery and Other StoriesBook - 1982
The Lottery , one of the most terrifying stories written in this century, created a sensation when it was first published in The New Yorker . "Power and haunting," and "nights of unrest" were typical reader responses. This collection, the only one to appear during Shirley Jackson's lifetime, unites "The Lottery:" with twenty-four equally unusual stories. Together they demonstrate Jack son's remarkable range--from the hilarious to the truly horrible--and power as a storyteller.

The Lottery I read, possibly in middle school, and again in high school. It blew my mind and I loved the creeping dread as I read it, which possibly fueled my Stephen King obsession.
