Stephen King promises The Shining sequel, ‘Dr Sleep’, will be “a Goddamn scary book!”

Stephen King is hard at work on his next book, Dr Sleep, which will be a sequel to his classic story The Shining. Just the other day Lilja’s Library said the King had announced he had finished the second draft of Dr Sleep, a story he promises will be very scary indeed.

In fact, King was responding to reports that after his latest book 11/22/63 critics were saying “maybe he was getting away from all that horror stuff.” In answer to those observations, King said about Dr Sleep¬† “They won’t know what hit them with Dr. Sleep… It’s a goddamn scary book.

I am positive King will keep to his word, so prepare yourselves people! To learn a little about Dr Sleep, King read the following excerpt back in September:

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
