Press Release for Doctor Sleep

From Hodder & Stoughton:

STEPHEN KING to return to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in 2013 

Hodder has acquired UK and Commonwealth rights from Chuck Verrill of Darhansoff &Verrill in DOCTOR SLEEP. King says he wanted to know what happened to Danny Torrance, the boy at the heart of The Shining, after his terrible experience in the Overlook Hotel. The instantly riveting, stand-alone novel, Doctor Sleep picks up the story of the now middle-aged Dan, working at a hospice in rural New Hampshire, 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.

Hardcover publication of the novel will be September 24, 2013, and readers can hear a taster if they buy the CD or digital download of King's novel, THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE, because he reads the Prologue from it.

Release Date for Doctor Sleep

Not the official cover art. In fact, the title is Doctor Sleep, not Dr. Sleep.

From Stephenking.com:

Doctor Sleep, Stephen's highly anticipated sequel to The Shining will be released by Scribner and Hodder & Stoughton on 9.24.13.

That's a long way off, but I'm pretty excited about the book.

Why Is Doctor Sleep Delayed?

Ms. Mod from the StephenKing.com message board had this to say about the delay in publication of Doctor Sleep:

Steve needs more time for editing as he doesn't feel it's anywhere near ready for publication. He has a number of projects he's working on so would not be able to accomplish that within the deadline they would need in order to get it ready for production for a January release.
