1) has he ever done or considered doing martial arts?
2) has he ever had a fight?
3) will he ever write something fast-paced like The Running Man again?
4) would he ever consider writing a prequel to The Shining? I know he's done a sequel, but, for me, The Shining was all about the Overlook. Can't they rebuild the Overlook, as an alternative to a prequel?
That's a good question,I wondered when I read the short story Nona,and the novel Under the Dome, his descriptions of the fights the main characters had with locals,if Mr K had run ins with somebody as a young man and used his experiences as background inspiration for stories..
Have you read the official 'prologue' that was originally published in Whispers magazine and then later in an edited version in TV Guide when the miniseries was broadcast? If not, then you have to search for a copy somewhere, usually there's some on Ebay. That should whet your appetite for more of the Overlook! It's a really good snippet of the story, gives you abit more of the hotel's (and Jack's) background. Good luck!
