    Default Will SK ever write a prequel or sequel to The Shining that has the Overlook in it?

    For me, the Shining was all about the Overlook. Will Stephen ever write a sequel or prequel that involves the Overlook? In the mini series, the hotel was being rebuilt at the end, so he could do that in a book? Or he could go the other way and tell the story of the previous caretaker. I'm looking forward to Doc Sleep, but not as much as I would be to a sequel that goes back to the Overlook ...

    Why are you assuming the Overlook isn't in Doctor Sleep...?

    How about "Before the Play" which was first printed in Whispers 17/18 (August, 1982) and reprinted in an abridged version in TV Guide April 26/May 2, 1997? You can find these on eBay occasionally.

    Somehow I thought Overlook must be in Doctor Sleep... I hope there will really be something about it in the book. I guess we will wait and see.
