USA Today Interview With Stephen King


USA Today featured an interview with Stephen King in which he spoke about Doctor Sleep and offers his insight about how The Shining  influenced his writing of Doctor Sleep.

The author also discusses future projects:

Next for King is a non-supernatural suspense novel, Mister Mercedes, about a deranged terrorist with a bomb. King says he began it before the Boston Marathon bombing, but it’s “too creepily close for comfort.”

The Maine writer also hopes to stay involved with the TV adaptation of his science-fiction novel Under the Dome, a CBS hit that ended its debut season with a cliffhanger Monday. Anticipating a second season, he hopes to write the script of the first episode or “maybe even a couple,” but he won’t say if it will diverge from the novel.

Owen King, 36, is almost apologetic when he says that the father and son in his novel, Double Feature (Scribner), to be released Tuesday, are in no way based on himself and his dad or their relationship.
