King dedicated this collection of stories to Thomas Williams, a writing instructor who taught for many years at the University of New Hampshire. Since the book's publication, King has singled out Williams' National Book Award-winning novel The Hair of Harold Roux as a favorite of his,[1] one he returns to "again and again."[2]

The dedication reads:

In memory of
poet, novelist, and
great American storyteller.


The Night Flier and Dolan's Cadillac were both adapted to films of the same respective names.[3][4] "Chattery Teeth"' was adapted into a segment of the film Quicksilver Highway. "Sorry, Right Number" was telecast as an episode of Tales from the Darkside before it was published in Nightmares & Dreamscapes. "The Moving Finger" was adapted into an episode of the TV show Monsters. "Home Delivery" and "Rainy Season" were adapted into short films.

Television series

During the summer of 2006, TNT produced an eight-episode miniseries on various short stories by Stephen King. Although one may assume from the title that all of the episodes in the miniseries are from the collection of the same name, this is true for only five of the eight ("Battleground" was featured in Night Shift and "The Road Virus Heads North" and "Autopsy Room Four" appear in Everything's Eventual).
