Stephen King's contribution is the short story "The Reach"

From the Cemetery Dance website:

Cemetery Dance Publications commissioned a spectacular two-volume anthology project under the editorship of noted author and historian of the horror genre, John Pelan. John selected one story published during each year of the 20th Century (1901-2000) as the most notable story of that year — all 100 stories were then collected in this amazing two volume set to be published as The Century's Best Horror Fiction.The ground rules were simple: Only one selection per author. Only one selection per year. Two huge volumes, one hundred authors, one hundred classic stories, more than 700,000 words of fiction — history in the making!
