After years of rumors, it’s now official. Stephen King is writing a sequel to his 1977 novel, The Shining.
Though details about the plot are scant, King has indicated that the sequel, Dr. Sleep, will feature a now 40-year-old Danny Torrance and a group of vampires who feed on people’s psychic energy. No word on the sequel’s publication date, though Starcasm reports that King is almost finished with the manuscript.
The bestselling author read an excerpt from Dr. Sleep at George Mason University over the weekend, thrilling the audience with descriptions of a mysterious group of people who can only be the psychic vampires known as The Tribe. Check out a video of King’s reading below.
Are you excited to hear about Dr. Sleep? Though it will be awhile before the sequel makes it way to bookshelves, King fans only have to wait until November to get their hands on a new novel by the master of horror. King's upcoming book, 11/22/63, goes on sale 11/8/11.
