"An exceptional debut...Funny and poignant, these stories are textured gems."―People (four-star critic's pick)
The stories in this collection, along with Owen King's brilliant title novella set in Maine after the 2000 election, carry the weight of real emotion and revelation and showcase the impressive versatility of a rising talent.
An adolescent encounters a giant reptile in the unlikeliest of places, a rundown shopping mall; a baseball player in a fantastic 1930s Coney Island is assailed by the guilt of an illicit romance; a nineteenth-century itinerant dentist finds himself snowed in with a group of trappers for a long evening of primitive surgery and laughing gas reveries. The stories in this collection, along with King's brilliant title novella set in Maine after the 2000 election, carry the weight of real emotion and revelation and showcase the impressive versatility of a rising talent.

The reception for King's collection We're All in This Together was positive, with both the Los Angeles Times and Independent giving it positive reviews.
King's first full-length novel, Double Feature, was called "overwritten" in a review in The New York Times.
King's graphic novel Intro to Alien Invasion received mixed reception, with Publishers Weekly pointing out the comic's inability to consistently transcend its "B movie source material," while Booklist called the spoofing of B-list material "highly successful".
