Joyland, the new Hard Case Crime novel by Stephen King, is not so much a murder mystery as it is a coming-of-age story set in an amusement park.
Stephen King has always stated that The Dark Tower series of novels contained a story that will forever haunt him until he is in his grave. Themes of these stories are echoed in his other stories and after the series ended, there was even a graphic novel prequel. Now, King has announced he is working on a new novel, The Wind through the Keyhole, which takes place during the original The Dark Tower series.
It’s been a good year for Stephen King, but when is it not? In addition to “Bag of Bones” coming to t.v. soon, the ongoing “will it or won’t it” movie or mini-series of “The Dark Tower”, writing a sequel to the “The Shining” and a new novel already being turned into a script, what more could an author ask for?
Unless you have been living under a rock, you are probably aware that A&E has been adapting Stephen King’s “Bag of Bones” into a two-part mini-series. Well now we have a release date for that series (December), as well as the first trailer.
I had not heard that this was even in the works (even though it was originally mentioned in 2009), but apparently, Stephen King is going to give us a sequel to The Shining, titled Dr. Sleep.
How’s that for a headline, huh? I get super-excited just reading that. Variety has reported that the film right’s to Stephen King’s upcoming novel 11/22/63 has been sold to Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme.
