New Projects from Stephen King

01 Jan

This was originally posted over at Realms & Galaxies: Celebrating SFF on the 27th of November 2009.

Now, I hope most of you have read Under the Dome and have given yourselves over to a King-fest (I know I would like to!), but if you’ve read of Stephen King’s work and are starved for new material, you’ll have to still wait a bit. 🙂

The King has announced one project, and the web is a-buzz with rumors of another – the projects being a return to the worlds of The Dark Tower and a sequel to The Shining.

The King has said that he’ll be writing either a novel or a series of interlinked stories set between Volume 4: Wizard and Glass, and Volume 5: Wolves of the Calla, and that these stories (or the novel) will have the title The Wind Through the Keyhole. There has been much debate on this, with some saying, basically, Leave It Alone, and others foaming at the mouths for more Dark Tower material; I’m of the latter – The Dark Tower saga is such an incredible tale that I would love another addition to it – goodness knows that the worlds King created for the series (worlds which link to his body of work in many ways) have almost limitless tales waiting to be told! 🙂 (Thanks to Piotr for the info!)

I’ll keep you updated on news concerning The Wind Through the Keyhole, though, 🙂

Now, concerning a sequel to The Shining, King hasn’t yet decided whether to actually write the book or not. The story might focus on Danny, he who has the Shine, as a 40-year old, and might be titled Doctor Sleep. It’ll be interesting to see in which direction King takes the character and events, and I for one am, of course, itching to read it! 🙂 (Thanks to Lood for the info!)

What do you think? Return to the Dark Tower or write a sequel to The Shining or both?

Be EPIC!
