WILTW: Shine On!
Stephen King has written a sequel to The Shining called Doctor Sleep.
A middle aged Dan Torrance has to use what’s left of his Shining abilities to save a young girl from a tribe of old, vampire-like being who travel the US in RVs and wear lots of polyester.
Yes, I will be pre-ordering this 544 page hardcover novel – even though it won’t be published until September. (I may have to pre-order King’s new Hardcase Crime mystery – Joyland – too.)
I. Am. Here. For. This.
Meanwhile, Warner Bros may travel into the past and do a prequel: The Overlook Hotel
You have seen The Shining–right?
Another book I’m looking forward to is Sidney Poitier’s Montaro Caine, which comes out in May.
Random House is categorizing this novel as Fiction – Visionary & Metaphysical:
A baby is born with a coin in her hand. An orphan crafts a mysterious wooden object. The CEO of a large corporation finds himself under extraordinary pressure at work and at home. And on a remote hilltop on a Caribbean island, a medicine man seems to understand the meaning of all these events and to hold the key to the future.
