Stephen King: 'Shining' sequel is scheduled for a 2013 release

Legendary horror author Stephen King’s sequel to his novel “The Shining” will be released next year and will be titled “Doctor Sleep.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, “Sleep” is scheduled to hit bookstores sometime in 2013. The book will center on Danny, the son of unhinged writer Jack Torrance, who is now an adult. Danny is disturbed by his childhood traumas, and in “Sleep,” he goes to work in a nursing home in New Hampshire. Danny must rescue a young girl from a group of people called the True Knot, strange nomads who survive off the matter given off by dying children who have the power of the “shining.”

“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,” the summary on King’s website reads.

Rumors have swirled that Warner Bros. has been planning a prequel to the classic movie adaptation of King’s novel.
