The Outsider To Be Released June 5

Posted: October 10, 2017, 22:39:40
Section: Book » The Outsider

Simon & Schuster has announced King's next book; The Outsider. The book will be released on June 5, 2018. Here is what they say about it on their site.

The Outsider
By Stephen King
From #1 New York Times bestseller Stephen King, whose brand has never been stronger, comes one of his most propulsive and unsettling stories ever.

An eleven-year-old boy is found in a town park, hideously assaulted and murdered. The fingerprints (and later DNA) are unmistakably those of the town’s most popular baseball coach, Terry Maitland, a man of impeccable reputation, with a wife and two daughters. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland coached, orders an immediate and public arrest. Maitland is taken to jail, his claim to innocence scorned. Maitland has a foolproof alibi, with footage to prove that he was in another city when the crime was committed. But that doesn't save him either.

King constructs a propulsive plot, and a race against time to uncover the identity of a terrifying and diabolical killer who has left victims—and “perpetrators”—across the country, and who is on his way to his next horrific act.

King’s psychological suspense is at its most riveting in this extraordinarily dramatic and eerie story. He is devastatingly vivid on the experience of being falsely blamed—the effect on the accused, the spouse, the children; the suspicion of friends, even the most loyal; the impossibility of ever being innocent again (if you are lucky to enough to live). He is also masterful at showing us that supernatural monsters are startlingly like human beings who do monstrous things.

Updated Plot Description Of The Outsider

Posted: October 16, 2017, 08:33:40
Section: Book » The Outsider

Here is an updated plot description of The Outsider, Out June 5th.

An unspeakable crime. A confounding investigation. At a time when the King brand has never been stronger, he has delivered one of his most unsettling and compulsively readable stories. An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

As the investigation expands and horrifying answers begin to emerge, King’s propulsive story kicks into high gear, generating strong tension and almost unbearable suspense. Terry Maitland seems like a nice guy, but is he wearing another face? When the answer comes, it will shock you as only Stephen King can.

Outsider, Elevation & One More Book In 2018?

Posted: December 23, 2017, 02:14:44
Sections: Book » The Outsider, Book » Elevation
In this interview with EW King talks about all the things that happened in 2017 and what’s coming in 2018:

The Outsider: Out in May according to King (Scribner has it listed for June)

Another book that doesn’t have a title yet that’s done.

Elevation: A novella that’s longer than Gwendy’s Button Box and also about Castle Rock, in some ways, it’s almost like a sequel to Gwendy’s Button Box that will come out in some form.

Looks like there will be a great 2108!

Elevation; King's Second Book For 2018

Posted: February 7, 2018, 09:28:09
Section: Book » Elevation
Stephen King's official site has announces 2018's second Stehen King book Elevation. The book will be 144 pages and released on October 30.

Elevation
By Stephen King
Release Date: October 30th, 2018

The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together—a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences.

Although Scott Carey doesn’t look any different, he’s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn’t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis.

In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade—but escalating—battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott’s lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face – including his own -- he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott’s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others.

From Stephen King, our “most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work” (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

I'm currently reading Stephen King - On Writing and it's pretty interesting. The first half is basically his autobiography (Not what I was looking to read but still interesting) and now it's finally onto the stuff I want to learn.

King is a wonderful storyteller, even when talking about his own history. I enjoy reading all of his afterwords, it gives you insight into his mind.

Molly: The Inspiration To A Not-Yet-Published Story

Posted: March 8, 2018, 11:23:34
Apparently Molly has been the inspiration to one (not-yet-published) story about a dog that’s terrified of alligators.

We ask if Molly functions as a muse for the author. “She’s a-MUSEing. But she’s a pain in the ass when I’m writing. She wants to go out and play ball!” Still, Molly has inspired at least one (not-yet-published) Stephen King story about a dog that’s terrified of alligators.
