So, Stephen King is writing a sequel to The Shining.

This was a huge book for me as a kid. Scared the crap outta me, inspired me, made me fear hotel hallways late at night. Seriously.

And now, we get Danny at 40… which is my age. Weird. I always sort of identified with Danny as a kid. Not that I thought I was necessarily psychic, but I was definitely very sensitive. And I did have a rather blustery, if not alcoholic, father.

I’m not going to ruminate too much on this news, but I’d love hear people’s thoughts on it, if they have any.
