Over Fifteen Pounds of Book!!–Knowing Darkness: Artists Inspired by Stephen King

Shelfari Blog – “Some books make you feel like Captain Ahab pursuing the white whale. They come smashing through the door, so heavy that because it’s a book and you’ve forgotten books can be huge, you almost hurt yourself lugging it through the house to the livingroom. Knowing Darkness: Artists Inspired by Stephen King is one of those books. It’s the brainchild of Centipede Press and its founder Jerad Walters, who has established a reputation for doing the impossible, with such juggernauts as A Lovecraft Retrospective: Artists Inspired by Lovecraft”

Stephen King on J.D. Salinger: ‘The last of the great post-WWII American writers’

Stephen King – “I wasn’t a huge Salinger fan, but I’m sorry to hear of his passing — the way you’d feel if you heard an eccentric, short-tempered, but often fascinating uncle had passed away.”

Stephen King planning possible sequel to The Shining

Torontoist – “Last night at Toronto’s packed Canon Theatre, fans of Stephen King were treated to a 15-minute reading from the author’s new novel, Under the Dome, and nearly an hour’s worth of typically funny anecdotes and keen observations during an on-stage interview with director David Cronenberg. Then King dropped a fan bombshell on the crowd by casually describing a novel idea he began working on last summer. Seems King was wondering whatever happened to Danny Torrance of The Shining, who when readers last saw him was recovering from his ordeal at the Overlook Hotel at a resort in Maine with fellow survivors Wendy Torrance and chef Dick Halloran (who dies in the Kubrick film version). King remarked that though he ended his 1977 novel on a positive note, the Overlook was bound to have left young Danny with a lifetime’s worth of emotional scars. What Danny made of those traumatic experiences, and with the psychic powers that saved him from his father at the Overlook, is a question that King believes might make a damn fine sequel.”

OK, maybe not

Give That Girl a (Book) Jacket

Booklist Onlin – “We all know Stephen King wrote The Body, but this is probably the first time he’s written on a body. The July issue of Esquire features a new story by King, “Morality,” the first few lines of which have been lovingly painted across the bod of Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli.”
