Can anybody recommend any of his short stories (not novellas)? It struck me that he might have written some really powerful ones, given his penchant for terrifying atmosphere. Any suggestions where to start?

I'd recommend picking up two of his collections, Everything's Eventual and Just After Sunset. JAS has four or five really good ones IMHO, although the best one, "The Gingerbread Girl", is edging into novella territory at 55 pages long in my hardcover copy. Three of the stories in EE were filmed: "1408", "Riding The Bullet", and "Autopsy Room Four" (the last one was done for TNT's Nightmares And Dreamscapes anthology series).
