"The New York Times at Special Bargain Rates" is a 10-page short story originally published in the Oct/Nov 2008 issue of the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and later included in King's own 2008 collection Just After Sunset.

The story concerns Annie Driscoll following the funeral of her husband, as she receives a harrowing phone call from the most unexpected person.


King's vision of an intermediary stage between life and afterlife that takes the form of a train station is reminiscent of Chapter 35 of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
