The theme and story-line sound much like ground SK has covered before. Hopefully someone will be able to do a limited of this.

Almost sounds like a Clive Barker or Joe Hill story.

I love the jacket on this.

Nice! Thanks for the news!!

On the surface it seems like this could be drawing on elements shown to us already in Talisman/Blackhouse and some Dark Tower with parallel universes and good vs evil. Not the storyline but just the idea of flipping back and forth from one universe to the other and the idea of a good vs evil battle affecting more than just one reality.

At first glance, it feels like I’ve already read this book under the name The Talisman. It sounds very unoriginal, but as a lifelong fan I’ve honestly never been disappointed yet so I’m sure it will be great!

My guess is that this will stand on it's own. SK has many similar themes throughout his catalog, and for the most part, each story has it's own unique feel to it. Either way I'm hopeful this is the case.

On another forum I frequent someone else stated the synopsis reminded them a little of a short story called the "Cookie Jar". I thought of the Talisman, Blackhouse (a little), WTTK, EOTD, and Jake's story line.

Stephen King released this statement about his just announced epic new novel called FAIRY TALE:

"What could you write that would make you happy?" Stephen King said in a statement. "As if my imagination had been waiting for the question to be asked, I saw a vast deserted city — deserted but alive. I saw the empty streets, the haunted buildings, a gargoyle head lying overturned in the street. I saw smashed statues (of what I didn't know, but I eventually found out). I saw a huge, sprawling palace with glass towers so high their tips pierced the clouds. Those images released the story I wanted to tell."
