Anyone read it yet?
...nah, vanilla extract is more to my liking....
That's all well and good, but some of us would like a "taste" of the new novel...
...sheesh, some people!.......no, have not read it yet...and those "teasers' are always like an unfulfilling appetizer to me...just enough to whet my appetite, but no meal to follow until Fall in this case...
What new Doctor Sleep paperback are you referring to, i.e. US or UK edition? The US paperback has an excerpt of Mr. Mercedes, not Revival.
Someone read it to me please. I don't have a Doctor Sleep paperback, but I am so looking forward to Revival. I may have to buy it new- pre-order even. My ancestors were crazy Appalachian snake-handling Pentecostals. This book is going to be so much fun to read.
Am following up on the trade paperback edition which may have the Revival excerpt--still haven't actually seen one to verify or heard back from the publisher.
I never read excerpts either. It drives me crazy to only have part of a story. And then I spend the whole time I'm starting a new book already knowing a portion of it. No thanks!
I don't even want to watch a movie trailer before I see a movie. I don't read those teasers either. Can't stand not being able to read the rest of the story.
Ooh.. Thank you! You've just reminded me that I had to find something for somebody...
Lilja's Library - The World of Stephen King [1996 - 2014]
US has Revival, apparently.
(and I know it says NEW NOVEL, ie. MR MERCEDES, but apparently it's definitely REVIVAL)
Marsha- do you need me to send a copy up that way? Sheesh, I thought Steve would at least get 'contributor' copies of his books!!
The new US trade paperback of Doctor Sleep has an excerpt of Revival.
And, no, I won't read it either- that's akin to eating the icing flowers off of a cake, sticking said cake into the fridge and then pulling it out six months later to eat. As George Bush Sr. used to say: Not gon' do it.
If this is indeed an excerpt from Revival, Any chance it will make it to the main site Moderator?
Unlikely. The reason they put it in there is to help sell copies of Doctor Sleep (I know I'm not telling you anything you don't already know) so if we put it up on the site, it would lose its sale potential.
I knew that would be the answer but just had to ask. Thanks Ms. Mod!
Then we want the last remaining unpublished pages posted on here.......
Speaking of publishing, it's probably been answered elsewhere on here, but are we going to be treated to that story that King published in Europe or is it going to make it into the new anthology later?
He hasn't shared that with me but my understanding is that the final list of stories for the short story collection hasn't yet been set in stone.
