...sheesh, some people!....:laugh:...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...
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!

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.
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!! :lol:
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! :watermelon:

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.
