okay i was browsing about and decided to look up info about that new Dark Tower book(The Wind Through The Keyhole)as i am reading through them again..and i found that in March 2009 he said that he would start it in 8 months...i think we knew this anyway,someone posted it on here

anyway-in December 2009 Stephen King did a poll on his site for which book he should start writing next

Dr Sleep got 5861 votes

The Wind Through the Keyhole got 5812

Dr Sleep being a sequel to The Shining...which is the first i have heard of it


so it looks like we will get Dr Sleep first


it does sound pretty good though,following Danny from the first book

from wiki:
Quote
The story, King said, would follow the boy from the original novel, Danny Torrence, now in his forties, living in upstate New York, where he works as an orderly at a hospice and helps terminally ill patients pass away with the aid of some extraordinary powers


so,a sequel to The Shining....do we need one?i loved Book,Film and Mini series so i am a big fan...but,still a sequel is something i would not of expected


for those interested in Dark Tower 8,i managed to find this
Quote
a new Mid-World book (not directly about Roland Deschain, but yes, he and his friend Cuthbert are in it, hunting a skin-man, which are what werewolves are called in that lost kingdom)

sounds pretty cool

remember the 4th book was a flashback book also...but that was being told by Roland to Eddie,Susannah and Jake(and Oy)

so,will this be Roland telling this tale,or just like how The little sisters of Eluria(another Roland short story) is in Everything's Eventual?
Spoiler for Hiden:
given the ending of Book 7 i reckon the latter


so i am pretty intrigued with Stephen Kings next books hopefully next year


EDIT:okay about DT8 i just noticed this on the wiki page about it
Preceded by    Wizard and Glass
Followed by    Wolves of the Calla

which would make it a direct sequel to the events in book 4 then?..as in the past events in book 4

Awesome news. I had no idea about the Shining sequel. Sort of a dumb title though.

While I'd love a new Dark Tower book, I'm a little burned out on it and would like to see King get back to his old school horror roots.

Dr Sleep maybe a working title,i agree it is a little shit,and i hope he can come up with a better one,especially as he isn't even a Doctor Tongue

Dr Sleep seems kinda like a title he'd use, I'm looking forward to it.

Doctor Sleep is due Next September

LONDON (Reuters) - More than three decades after "The Shining" was first published, the sequel to Stephen King's classic horror novel is finally coming out next year.
"Doctor Sleep" is due for publication on September 24, 2013, the U.S. author said on his website.

The original book was published in 1977, and its success helped establish King's fame as a horror novelist.

"Scribner and Hodder & Stoughton have established September 24, 2013 as the official first publication date for Doctor Sleep, a sequel to The Shining," King said on his website.

Quote
In the sequel, Dan Torrance, no longer a boy but a middle-aged man, is still haunted by his father's legacy and the horrific childhood year he spent at the Overlook Hotel, according to a synopsis of the book posted on the website.

He uses his gift - the shining - to comfort the dying in a New Hampshire town but his life is upset when he meets a 12-year-old girl who also has the shining and whom he "must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals," the website said.
