"'It Grows On You" is a short story written by Stephen King. It was first published in the Fall 1973 issue of Marshroots, reprinted in the August 1982 issue of Whispers, and later included in King's own 1993 collection Nightmares and Dreamscapes.'


The story recounts some of the bizarre and inexplicable events that have taken place in a notorious house in the town of Castle Rock, Maine. As the incidents increase, the house has additional wings added, so the house literally takes on a life of its own, growing in what seems proportion to the awful things that continue to happen.


The audiobook version of this story, in the Nightmares and Dreamscapes collection, is read by Stephen King.
