    I wonder if it couldnt be a part of Billy Summers?

    Working on an article for my website, I noticed that most of their previous King publications were stories / parts of books. Gray Dick / Lisey and the madman / A very tight place (from JAS)
    Theorically, I would say that it could be a story excerpt from Billy Summers.
    Usually King books are released in october. McSweeney is planned in september. So would have normally be before, except that Billy Summers may have been pushed forward?

    Just a theory though

    Due to release dates I don’t think the story is an excerpt. But maybe is some kind of post scene.

    Even better, a prequel about Billy deployed in Iraq and the way he became an assassin.

    Another theory;-)
