    Default Stephen King in 2017

    So just like the 2016 thread, even if a little early (though we are halfway through the year), we have some indications - finally! - of potential King works in the pipeline, all discussed by King during his End of Watch tour.

    As of right now we can single out one specific novel in the works, Sleeping Beauties with Owen King, most likely a non-horror novel set in a women's prison in West Virgina. A first draft has been completed.

    Additionally, King mentioned a number of times that Talisman 3 is "due", though if it's to come out soon, it most likely would fall on 2018, as that would be the same length of time since Black House as Black House was since The Talisman.

    Finally, King also mentioned "a book that is scaring him to death" was also finished as a first draft, to quote one member who was in attendance. Pet Sematary 2? Just kidding!

    Last time it was mentionned by Steve & Peter, months ago, nothing was even written and they had busy schedules.
    However, I wouldnt be surprised to see a new Dark Tower story appear by the release of the movie...

    From the Tulsa event: “Don’t tell anyone, but I’m working on another book, and it’s going to be set in Tulsa,” King said. “Assuming it gets done.”

    So glad King is writing a book with Owen. What an immense sense of satisfaction he must get from collaborating with his sons. Would love to see him write something with Tabitha someday, or even a "pass-it-along" story involving all four of them! What an amazing family! Also, can't wait for the "scaring him to death" story!

    So after an uncharacteristically long period of not knowing what new books were on the horizon, we now know of three specific ones, at least:
    • Sleeping Beauties (2017)
    • Another Mr. Mercedes universe novel focusing on Holly
    • Talsiman 3

    All three were mentioned by King this weekend during the 2016 National Book Fest. Only Sleeping Beauties is actually slated for 2017.

    Maybe King's next collection of novellas can contain one story from each.

    If anything I can see a joint collection with Joe Hill, to collect "Throttle" and "In the Tall Grass" plus unknown other collaborative stories.

    T3 will probably not be published in 2017. More likely 2018 or even 2019. But it's nice to know they'll start working on it very soon.

    Like I said in the main Talisman 3 news thread, it must be released in fall of 2018 to keep to the cycle of 17 years between novels

    And, hopefully, Peter is done with his health issues...

    I agree with Ari : usually, between the completion by King of a manuscript and its publication, there is a good year and half. So, hopefully, starting it in 2017, finishing in late 2017 (?), and a year and half and it's easily end of 2018+

    It also depends of his other publications, as I think that his publisher tend not to overcrowd the market with his books. Recently it's been usually what : 2 books entirely BY King maximum a year?

    What's the point of releasing a month before then?

    I'll also add for 2017 a Dark Tower story.

    I am CONVINCED that a short story or something DT related BY Steve will be released around the time of the movie.

    I was sure about that as well. It was too suspicious that no new SK book was announced for 2017, despite Sleeping Beauties. Now I have my doubts but...I still think that something is cooking.

    No, but strictly a guess that it will be a Tuesday, most likely in June or November.

    I tend to agree with that.

    When books were due to be published in June, they were already announced before Christmas, right?
    I am also still convinced that there will be some Dark Tower story, around the time of the movie release, hence why nothing has been announced yet. Although, all the previous DT books were first published by DMG.
