    The original DM was 30 years ago,covered books,movies and novels of the horror genre from 1950-1980.How about an update,espcially with all the current vampire and zombie craze?The EW has been great,how about a more thorough overview."The Conjuring" is latest well reviewed scary movie.What does the genre's master think.Mr.King did an update for the DM audiobook,but horror is thriving at a frantic clip!

    I would like to see an update too, but I think I read somewhere else on the board that there might not be? Not sure of the reasons....

    I think I remember that it was quite a lot of work and he wouldn't be doing again because of the research it involved. Don't know that for sure, but I think that was it.

    Unless he has a project on hand, and he is always busy, busy, maybe Mr. Vincent could undertake that expansion.

    SK did do an updated introduction for Danse just a few years ago, and recently he said

    "Iíve been asked about a sequel to both DANSE MACABRE and ON WRITING, but I think one book on each subject is enough. Updating DM might be a good idea, though."

    However, in prior interviews he has usually said that it would just be too much work to do a true new Danse Macabre. Much of the material from the original Danse was gleaned from his teaching materials when he was writer in residence at the University of Maine at Orono in 1979, so he'd already done most of the work.

    At least it appears he hasn't totally dispensed with the idea...

    maybe a part 2 where he could start where he left off.
