Doctor Sleep Book Trailer

Stephen King has always been prolific.  That fact is not news to librarians, book sellers, or King aficionados.   But it is always pleasant surprise when he releases a new book, Joyland, and a book trailer for his new fall title on the same day.

Doctor Sleep is the unexpected sequel to The Shining. It is due out September 24 and follows a grown-up, beleaguered Danny Torrance as he deals with all the demons he can’t leave behind.


As a Stephen King super-fan, I can’t wait.  But I am also a bit nervous about getting a sequel to my favorite King novel (and movie!).  But, much like everyone else, I will have to wait until September.

What say you?  Does this look like a worthy successor to The Shining?
