I'm about halfway through Doctor Sleep and I had a question about the steam. Was the steam that exploded the boiler in The Overlook Hotel the souls of the ghosts? Something that's crossed my mind, particularly when it was mentioned the True camped at an area that used to be The Overlook.

great thought, it definitely crossed my mind as well. in particular because as soon as I finished Doctor Sleep I went back and re-read The Shining. really a great set of books and I dunno if it is just my overactive imagination but I felt like Dr Sleep was not just a Shining sequel but touched on most classic era Steve King horror novels as well
