Dr. Sleep: Stephen King Announces Sequel to The Shining

Unless you absolutely have no taste in horror, you have heard of, seen, or read The Shining, one of Stephen Kings most popular of novels. Hell, even if you’ve read the book or watched the movie, lets just go ahead and revisit the scary axe scene, because its simply that good:

Sends shivers up my spine. Anyway, Stephen King, the proclaimed master of horror, announced on September 26, 2011, that he is creating a sequel to The Shining, titled Dr. Sleep. The story follows Danny Torrance, the five-year-old from The Shining, now in his 40s. Danny uses his extraordinary powers to help terminally ill patients easily pass away, and that’s all we know so far.

Here’s Stephen reading an excerpt from the novel-in-work:

Obviously, the novel is still in the writing/editing process, so we can only wait and hope it lives up to its predecessors success. Stephen King has delivered so many bestselling novels by now that one more should not be an issue. We’ll just have to wait and see!
