Product Description

"Strawberry Spring" is a horror short story by Stephen King. It was collected in King's Night Shift in 1978. It employs a twist ending.

An unnamed narrator sees the words "Springheel Jack" in a newspaper. It rekindles memories of a time about eight years previously when he was at New Sharon College. His recollections are nostalgic, almost melancholy. It was March 16, 1968, when the strawberry spring, a "false" spring much like an Indian summer, arrived. It brought a thick fog that covered the campus at nighttime, providing perfect cover for a serial killer called "Springheel Jack".
