Release date set for King's Shining sequel
It's been a long time coming but Stephen King's highly anticipated sequel to The Shining is set to hit bookstores on September 24th 2013.Titled Doctor Sleep, it follows Danny Torrance who survived the wrath of both his father and the malevolent Overlook hotel. He'll now be a middle-aged man but will still possess his special powers.
In the new book, he meets a young girl who he must save from a group of murderous paranormals, who live off the "shining" that special children produce as they are slowly tortured to death. He'll be aided by a prescient cat.
It's billed as "an epic war between good and evil" and "a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining". Sounds pretty good to us.
