Every Stephen King fan has their top five, and so does the author.

King dropped by Global’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday to promote his latest release, Billy Summers. Host Colbert asked the prolific author to name his top five Stephen King works.

“My favourite short story would be called ‘Survivor Type’, which was about a physician who gets stranded on a little island and he’s smuggling heroin,” King explained. “He’s starving and he eats himself piece by piece.”

“I like it — for the whole family,” Colbert quipped.

“It could be a Disney cartoon,” King replied.
