Doctor Sleep Trailer

A trailer for a book?!

Who would ever thought that Stephen King would return to The Shining? Well to wet our appetites further, the publisher of Doctor Sleep, Scribner, has put together a quick trailer for the book. 

Synopsis: Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals.

On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless—mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and tween Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the “steam” that children with the “shining” produce when they are slowly tortured to death.

Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him, and a job at a nursing home where his remnant “shining” power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes “Doctor Sleep.”

Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

Doctor Sleep arrives Sepetmber 24th, 2013.

I sincerely hope that  Mr. King returns to his old ways.  He has only had a couple of good reads (Cell, Under the Dome, and the Kennedy novel) since he finished up the Dark Tower.....

Between King and Koontz, my summer reading is packed.  They crank out novels as fast as I can read them.  I plan on picking up some other novels upon reference for camping and beach outings for change of pace.  This one just caught my attention, so I will have to have a clean slate come September for it.

I read mostly thrillers, political thrillers, espionage stories and such; both fiction and non-fiction.  Stories about military, combat, spies, that sort of thing.  Tom Clancy is my favorite and recently I've gotten into Vince Flynn and Brad Thor.  I never really got into King or any of the other horror novelists, which is interesting since I love horror movies.  This one sounds intriguing.  Might have to pick it up.  Hopefully it'll be offered in a Kindle version.
