But would you pay for it? :laugh: I think there'd be a lot of demands for a refund for the worst Stephen King novel ever. :)
Yes, I'd dust it off and put fingerprint protection on it. Then I'd wrap it neatly in wrapping paper and put it in a chest and close the lid and lock it three ways. Then I'd dig a deep hole in the ground and bury it. Then I'd make a map showing the exact coordinates of the location and tuck it away in a safe place. Then in the year 21785 when the apocalypse has happened and the next intelligent lifeforms have taken our place, a team of archeologists exploring the ruined buildings of what once was America, trying to learn about what our culture was like, they'll stumble across the chest and break it open to see the book. And then they will know, just what went wrong.

Or it could be good. I dunno.

I'll save you the trouble of putting that to the test. ;)

i have a feeling owen king will take over some of his unfinioshed or unpublished workds. i do not think it will be joe
If that were to happen, Joe's style is much more like his dad's than Owen's so I think it would be Joe. Before he wrote the final Dark Tower books, he had told me that Joe should be the one to finish them if he didn't.

Peter Straub could have finished TDT series, Black House had a lot of TDT elements.

Owen's writing is like his mother's. I think Steve actually brought that up in the conversation with John Grisham.
