    From Brian Keene's latest newsletter :

    I worked on INVISBLE MONSTERS and PROJECT CASTLE (and a lot of people have figured out what the latter is, and Rich Chizmar confirmed it during a YouTube Livestream, so the heck with it ó letís dispense with the codename. PROJECT CASTLE is actually a graphic novel adaptation of Stephen King and Richard Chizmarís GWENDYíS BUTTON BOX. However, it goes beyond the novella and explores the other residents and denizens of Castle Rock, and what they were up to during the time period of the novella. So, for example, while Cujo, or Deputy Andy Clutterbuck, or Frank Dodd didnít appear in the book, they could very well appear in the graphic novel. Basically, Iíve been allowed to run riot all over Castle Rock in the 1970s, and it has been a lot of fun. Weíre still a while from publication (Iím on the final draft now) and Iíll stay mum about the artist and the rest of the team (because Rich didnít speak about any of that on the livestream).

    If it seems like Iím taking a long time for a 100+ page graphic novel, thatís because I am. These arenít my characters, and itís a setting beloved by millions, and I am taking my time to make sure I deliver something that is respectful, thoughtful and loving of them. And Iím also fact-checking with Bev Vincent and other experts to make sure the stuff Iíve added matches up, continuity-wise. Bottom-line: if youíre hoping for Pennywise fighting Father Callahan in the basement of the Castle Rock VFW, youíre going to be very disappointed. But if youíre wondering what the Castle Rock Strangler was doing the night Gwendy pressed a button and ate a chocolate rabbit, I think youíll dig it.

    Absolutely no idea what that means, nor if there will be anything really interesting about Stephen King, but a few days ago, Richard Chizmar posted this in a facebook Stephen King fans group :

    Between the upcoming free bonus chapbook (by Richard & Billy Chizmar), which is signed and fully illustrated by Francois Valliancourt & Billyís extra creepy original story for April, thereís never been a better time to sign up for his Patreon page. Plus thereís a bunch of exclusive Stephen King related content. Check it out!

    This is Billy, who has directed the unreleased "Trapped" short movie, that is supposed to become a feature length movie by Mark Pavia

    It was released last summer, but was only able to read it recently : "Adapting Stephen King - vol 1"

    Quite enjoyed it
    Very interesting and insightful !

    Reading that the axe used by Jack Nicholson in The Shining is going on display at the Stanley Hotel. Part of a " film museum" to be incorporated into the hotel. Someone apparently purchased it for close to $200K.

    We've been discussing it on the intriguing thread.

    Bev linked this article about it.

    Nobody talked about it, but the long forgotten "Ghost Brothers of Darkland County" musicals turned 10 last month!

    Not the commercial release (that will be june next year), but for its premiere in Atlanta.
    I still wish there was a video recording of it, somehow. Seems like a shame not to have one :-(

    Anyway, seems like the whole audio is available freely and legally on youtube (shared by Universal) :

    I was lucky enough to see it in Boston when it toured. It was very cool, but not something that would be very commercial in my eyes. Not sure how I would have reacted if I had not been a King fan. Billy Burke and Gina Gershon were the leads.

    Those prices are ridiculous. $99 for a hardcover (that's not a fancy limited edition)? $24 for a Kindle ebook?

    These are "scholarly" books intended for distribution to schools and libraries, not necessarily geared to the 'casual' fan or collector. Of course, there are many that still try to collect them, and often can find them at bargain prices long after publication (I have quite a few), but I think the prices also reflect a more long-term use for many readers checking them out throughout libraries.

    Fundraisers planned to benefit three area nonprofits in June


    ... bla bla bla....
    To make up for our substantial revenue losses, we ask everyone to take a look at the very special, varied and quality auction items, including gift certificates for several golf courses, restaurants, florists, and a Patriots-Bills football game, as well as the very special Stephen King autographed novel, ďRevival.Ē
