It seems like just yesterday that Stephen King announced he would no longer be publishing any novels. He would still write, of course, but for himself, locking his creations away in a drawer waiting to be published posthumously. That didn't happen as we all know now, as King continues a successful writing career.

His latest, it would seem, is a sequel to his 1977 classic, The Shining. The book has famously been adapted twice for the screen, and even served as the basis for an elaborate spoof in a "Treehouse of Horror" episode of The Simpsons.

Everything we know so far about the book is at the Doctor Sleep article, so if you hear some news, please feel free to edit the page. I can't wait to see how this develops!

How about you...

How excited are you for the new book?
