Entertainment Weekly recently sat down with Stephen King to discuss Doctor Sleep, the highly anticipated sequel to King's iconic early work, The Shining. Along the way, the horror master reflects on his life, his career, and how much he misses scaring people.
There've been a couple of books that haven't really been that way. 11/22/63 was a lot of fun to write and a lot of people read it and seemed to like it, but it's not what you'd call a balls to the wall scary story. The same was true of Under the Dome. I wanted to go back to that real creepy scary stuff.
Doctor Sleep will be released in September, 2013.Categories: Interview, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Horror
