“The Mangler” by Stephen King

12.12.12

Story 354/366

It’s no secret that I (heart) Stephen King and the first work of his I read were his short stories. (I think ‘Salem’s Lot was the first novel of his I read and I remember reading The Stand while I had the flu, which made it even scarier.)  He’s written a lot of outstanding short stories, but I am fond of this one because my grandmother had a laundry mangler and I was afraid of it. I believe King could make a toaster seem sinister, but here he imbues the device with a sinister sentience. The Mangler appears in a couple of collections.stephen king

See you tomorrow!
