Summary, etc.:
The master of terror, Stephen King, found a box full of stories and manuscripts that belonged to his father. Since then, no one found out what was inside that box or if all of this influenced King's work. This is an homage to Stephen King and his stories. In the story, 'The stories' box', Steve tells about a box and as he grows up, he has recurrent dreams and predictions of stories that would become a successful book. In the story 'The gravedigger', an old gravedigger about to retire, after 40 years of burying people in Boad Hill, never wondered when his time to die would come or who would bury him. Because it does no good to think about death. In the story 'The A girl', a married man has several affaires with different women, until one day the A girl presents herself. A gorgeous beauty of long legs and big green eyes. But after going to a hotel, he finds out the truth. In the story 'Rotten apples', Tom loved his fruit trees, especially his apple trees when they were a color festival in the spring. He loved apples and he would eat two every day. Until one day, he feels very tired and he sees roots growing instead of fingernails. His joints start to become rigid. In the story 'In the maggot's mouth', a shylock from the eighteenth century counts his money every night... And many, many more.
