I thought it was a joke at first, but it's confirmed on his official website. Stephen King is writing a seque to The Shining, and "the plot includes a traveling group of vampires called The Tribe." (taken from the website.) Full quote: Dr. Sleep In The Works September 26th, 2011 10:03:40 am It's now official--Stephen is working on Dr. Sleep, the sequel to The Shining. This weekend Steve read an excerpt from this at his appearance at George Mason University. They have given us permission to post their taping of the event here on Steve's site which we will do as soon as we receive the file. Dr. Sleep's plot includes a traveling group of vampires called The Tribe which is part of the passage he read from. (http://www.stephenking.com/news.html) What do you think? I can't possibly be the only one who thinks this is a terrible idea? What's next? Return of Pennywise? Sometimes they come back again... and again... and again...? Childen of the corndog?
