    Default Elevation: A Castle Rock novella

    From the EW interview: "I’ve written another novella called Elevation, which is also a Castle Rock story and, in some ways, it’s almost like a sequel to Gwendy. Sometimes you seed the ground, and you get a little fertilizer, and things turn out."

    Later in the interview, he says it's longer than Gwendy's Button Box.

    I hope this story actually has something to do with Castle Rock.

    Default ELEVATION, a new Castle Rock story

    Per Stephen King's official website :

    Elevation
    By Stephen King
    Release Date: October 30th, 2018

    The latest from legendary master storyteller Stephen King, a riveting, extraordinarily eerie, and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together—a timely, upbeat tale about finding common ground despite deep-rooted differences.

    Although Scott Carey doesn’t look any different, he’s been steadily losing weight. There are a couple of other odd things, too. He weighs the same in his clothes and out of them, no matter how heavy they are. Scott doesn’t want to be poked and prodded. He mostly just wants someone else to know, and he trusts Doctor Bob Ellis.

    In the small town of Castle Rock, the setting of many of King’s most iconic stories, Scott is engaged in a low grade—but escalating—battle with the lesbians next door whose dog regularly drops his business on Scott’s lawn. One of the women is friendly; the other, cold as ice. Both are trying to launch a new restaurant, but the people of Castle Rock want no part of a gay married couple, and the place is in trouble. When Scott finally understands the prejudices they face – including his own -- he tries to help. Unlikely alliances, the annual foot race, and the mystery of Scott’s affliction bring out the best in people who have indulged the worst in themselves and others.

    From Stephen King, our “most precious renewable resource, like Shakespeare in the malleability of his work” (The Guardian), Elevation is an antidote to our divisive culture, as gloriously joyful (with a twinge of deep sadness) as “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

    Is that an early April Fool's prank? That synopsis sounds terrible (and is jarringly written).
    Reilly: "Hey, George, the ocean called. They're running out of shrimp."

    George: "Oh, yeah, Reilly? Well, the jerk store called, and they're running out of you!"

    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Doesn't sound great to me.... His last 2 books have been average in my opinion and this doesn't sound much better. I am hoping the Outsider is good. If not I my be skipping this book.

    Yeah, I've read that synopsis more than once and don't understand what's happening.

    I'm glad it wasn't just me. What is it even about? I can't tell the tone, either.

    Ricky, it's about a man with an affliction who has some lesbian neighbors whose dog poops in his yard.
