    Storm of the Century is one of my personal favorites. I would be more than happy to see some addition to that storyline..

    I would love to see a sequel to "The Mist". Also, I'd love to see a sequel to "Pet Semetary". Wasn't there a brief metion of the Wendigo in that book? I'd love to see that creature woven into the fabric of a sequel. And then there's "Popsy", the creature from the story of the same name who is also the title character in "The Night Flier" (according to King himself). I'd love to know more about him *and* his grandson. And while we're on that subject, I *REALLY* want to know more about what goes on on that boat that Popsy's grandson was headed for. That idea, in and of itself, would make a fantastic (and *horrifying*!) story.

    All of these are superb ideas so far. However, I haven't seen mention of Needful Things (one of my top five favorite King novels ever). In the epilogue, Leland Gaunt--under a new name--had set up shop in another unsuspecting town. For the past twenty years, I've contemplated what happened there and how many other places that little devil tormented in such deviously entertaining ways. But even more interesting would be to see him team up with an uber-villian like Randall Flagg to wreak havoc in this world and/or in the many others in the King universe. Or, better yet, Gaunt vs. Flagg. Let the epic battle begin...

    I think in the sequel, Leland's new store would be called Ebay!!!

    Ebay can be fairly horrific in any number of ways. Perhaps the creator was inspired by Needful Things. Why not pit the world's online shoppers against one another? Talk about population control! Perhaps we've uncovered a conspiracy here...

    **extricates himself out of that most unforgiving of blackholes called a "tangent"**

    Anyway, re-routing myself to a destination approximating a sequel-related topic: Does King intend to complete The Plant? He offered what was titled "Part One: Zenith Rising" on his website about ten years ago. When I finished reading it, I asked myself, "Where's the rest of it?" What a tease that was. However, I'll be first in line to purchase the (currently hypothetical) continuation of that tale. No matter the cost. I need closure so that the section of my brain dedicated to unresolved thoughts regarding The Plant can be used for something more productive than wondering about this story that may very well never reach completion.

    He says he doesn't. But that would be such a shame, I think.
    I still have part 1 lying unread on my shelves, hoping against hope for the day King will water his Plant again.

    Where could I find The Plant? I didn't hear about it until recently, so I have yet to read part 1. Then again, maybe that wouldn't be a good idea if King won't complete the story, lol

    Unforutunately, The Plant hasn't been available to download in eleven years or so. Although you may already be aware of this portion of King's web site, here is a link to information regarding The Plant: http://www.stephenking.com/library/n...sing_the.html/.

    I would like to see more about Jack Sawyer and I had heard that Peter and Stephen have already considered it likely. Another character I'd like more of is that old guy from Thinner. Now I know Richard Bachman died of pseudonym cancer back in, like, '85. But I think Stephen could carry the torch for that old gypsy.

    More than likely - definitely.
    It's only a matter of finding the right time.
    I think (hope!) soon.

    I heard that, too. I read it on his forums.

    Dr. Sleep is the upcoming sequel to The Shining, not Talisman III.

    The question is whether it would be a book or for the graphic novel line they are planning for talisman.

    Going by what King and Straub have revealed so far, there will be a third Talisman novel.
    The question being, when will these authors find the opportunity to work together again?!

    The graphic Talisman novel is out there.
    At least, the first arc: The Road of Trials.
    I don't think it sold too well, so unfortunately (I feel) this project is on hiatus for now.
    Forever???

    re: Dr. Sleep. When King did his Under the Dome signing in Baltimore, he mentioned his thoughts on this idea. He said the same things that are mentioned in the EW article linked above. But he also mentioned tinkering with the idea of Danny hooking up with Charlie McGee from Firestarter. Now wouldn't they have some interesting children???

    It's been 26 years since Pennywise last walked the streets of Derry. Did the kids really kill It? If not, It's cycle is due to restart real, real soon.

    ...and now Pennywise has given up on Derry, only to pay a visit to... Castle Rock. Now that I would like to see.

    That would be a really good book. Hope so.
