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.

The plot is not fully clear yet, but it does include a travelling group of Vampires called The Tribe.

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.
