I read somewhere that Mr King had collaborated on a novel with his son Owen. Supposedly due out sometime in 2017.
Is there any information out on when this will be available for pre-order and where?
Or maybe a snippet of what's it about?
We don't have a firm pub date yet and I'm not sure if they want any of the plot made public so can't comment on that at the moment. I'll check to see if they're ready to release any updates.

Cant wait to read the new book! Looking forward to it. SK himself talked about some of the plot in a few of his appearances. If any one is interested they could watch some of those videos.

I'll be honest, the last few King releases haven't exactly wowed me. If this is about a woman's prison, well, it's not something that is urging me to read.

But there's so little information out about it, and I didn't even hear about it until today. Maybe it'll appear more enticing the closer we get to a release.
Never judge a book by its cover nor title. We all await more news.

Personally I'm hoping it'll be a total mainstream novel with no supernatural element whatsoever. Of the books I've read that Owen has written, he sticks to the mainstream with nothing ooga-booga in there.
I'm kind of the opposite. I've never read anything of Owen King's. When it comes to Stephen, however, not only do I prefer it supernatural, I would rather it be overtly horrific. I'm a horror fan first and foremost. Anytime Stephen King deviates from that, I'm less interested.

Owen is funny, I have read intro to alien invation. And it has alien .. I liked it.
I hope we get a cover soon, and I hope we get a new author photo. Please I whant t new author photo. It's been the same for like the last 3 or 4 publications. Not that it's bad or anything. But something fresher whould be cool. Owen referenced Carrie in a really funny way, and so did joe in lock and key. That was awsome

....this one should be quite the collaboration......their styles are quite divergent, yet the King touch is there....exactly like Joe's work does, though his cleaves more closely to Poppa's.....

Joe has been referred to as fantasy hooror, I am trying to decide who I like better, king or joe, but I have to,read more, I am leaning for joe, but it may be an age thing. I find his concepts a. It newer.. like the fireman.

...although, to be blunt, The Fireman is simply a re-working of Dad's The Stand......
