I'm not surprised. You might also want to watch out for Duma Key, if you haven't read it yet; not exactly the same issue, but in the same ballpark.

I would take recs for less horror-ish short stories! The problem is that I get really squicked by gross body horror (the cop and the lawnmower in Misery, the giant pimples in Dark Tower, the garbage disposal in Firestarter, etc.) I'm OK with skimming individual scenes in the context of an entire novel, but I'm scared to plunge into the short stories without some sort of advance "this one's OK," because the last time I did that I got that goddamn story with the surgeon on the desert island. So, rec me anything where the horror isn't the whole point and there's no gross mutilation stuff.
