DOCTOR SLEEP: King’s Fortsetzung zu The Shining

The Shining ist wohl eines der bekanntesten Bücher von Horror-Kultautor Stephen King und schon rund 40 Jahre alt. Es war also definitiv an der Zeit für eine Fortsetzung. Die hat Stephen King nun mit Doctor Sleep geschrieben.

Ab dem 24. September 2013 wird Doctor Sleep im Buchhandel erhältlich sein, jedoch nur in der englischsprachigen Originalausgabe. Wann die deutsche Fassung des Buches erscheinen wird, ist bisher noch unklar.

Story: The instantly riveting Doctor Sleep picks up the story of the now middle-aged Dan, working at a hospice in rural New Hampshire, and the very special twelve-year old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless – mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and tween Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the ’steam‘ that children with the ’shining‘ produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father’s legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him and a job at a nursing home where his remnant ’shining‘ power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes ‚Doctor Sleep.‘ Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan’s own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra’s soul and survival …
