Sleeping Beauties By Stephen King & Owen King To Be Released On September 26, 2017

12

Stephen King is publishing a supernatural suspense novel with his son Owen – the first time the pair have collaborated.

Sleeping Beauties asks the question: “What would happen if all the women abandoned the world?”

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place… The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison.

The widely anticipated 720 page novel will be published on September 26, 2017.

Owen King’s first novel, Double Feature was published with Scribner in March 2013. He is Stephen King’s youngest son and the brother of Joe Hill, who most recently authored the literary thriller The Fireman.
