Books The Shining Sequel

Quote:
We knew it was coming, but now itís official ó the long awaited sequel to the Stephen King classic The Shining, entitled Doctor Sleep, will be released on September 24, 2013, the author revealed on his Web site Tuesday.

The follow-up to 1977′s The Shining tells the story of a hospice worker who helps patients die painlessly. He comes into contact with a clan of roving, psychic vampires called The Tribe. EW shared an excerpt from the book nearly a year ago, when King was close to completing the manuscript.

Half excited for this. King hasn't been that strong lately, but this could be a great idea!

Psychic vampires? That sounds ridiculous. I don't have high hopes. But The Shining (along with Halloween) is my favorite horror film.

I will read and/or watch anything that is Stephen King -- even if it gets horrible reviews. I'm a sucker for his stuff. I've even watched reruns of Tommyknockers, The Mist, and The Langoliers on the ScyFy channel when they're on. As of right now, the only books I'm not finished with yet are the ones in the Dark Tower series.

I, too, am a sucker for Stephen King. I have all of his books downloaded onto my Kindle, and I plan on reading through the ones I've only ever seen as movies.

The Shining is an awesome movie, and I just watched it again recently. I REALLY hope he doesn't screw up the book sequel. It would be a shame...
