Hi all, thanks for letting me have the hiatus. I wish the rest had done more for me, but I’m still having a hell of a time with tics. It’s making typing particularly difficult, so I’ll be brief today.
In honor of October 1, I am happy to report that Stephen King’s book Doctor Sleep (sequel to The Shining!) is better than I could have hoped for. In some ways I like it more than The Shining. I wanted a worthy sequel, but Doctor book totally stands on its own.
The book comprises the further adventures of Danny, the boy from The Shining, as an adult. Something (some things) followed him out of the Overlook Hotel, across the decades, and now there’s a new fight.
And some of it is truly frightening. So good.
