    IF IT BLEEDS

    Hi All,
    Was online today and happened to notice that Stephen King has a new book coming out in 2020 called "If You Bleed." Looks like it is another Holly Gibney book which I am totally ok with as I liked the Mr. Mercedes trilogy and The Outsider. Hopefully more details will leak about this one soon. If anyone does hear anything about it, hope they will post that info here in the CD forum.

    I read recently that this one would primarily be a Holly Gibney story rather than just having her as a character. Looking forward to seeing where he takes her.

    SK tweeted the correct title earlier today:

    "The novel in which Holly Gibney stars, still very much in work, is actually called IF IT BLEEDS"

    We all learned a while back that The Outsider was the Holly Gibney story.

    We now know more about If It Bleeds:

    If It Bleeds has received a new release date from Scribner. The collection of four new novellas from Stephen King, will be released on May 5th, 2020 according to the book’s newly updated pre-order page on Amazon.
    The four new novellas included in If It Bleeds will be:
    * Mr. Harrigan’s Phone
    * The Life of Chuck
    * Rat
    * If It Bleeds

    We are also happy to report that the book comes in at 576 pages.

    No chance I suppose on releasing loglines pertaining to the tales? I read that "Bleeds" might be a sequel to Outsider, but I myself can't say for certain.

    I like King's novella-writing. Looking forward to this...

    I have been unable to find details but Hodder & Stoughton posted this 'Four new irresistible stories from the master @StephenKing including a stand alone sequel to The Outsider'.

    Pretty hefty book judging by the page count. Wonder if H&S is going to go nuts with the variants of this one too.

    Thank you for the info. Pretty exciting about the sequel. With King also doing something of a sequel with The Stand in the TV series version (I guess something along the lines of helping write the last episode and discussing events after the end of the book), and with his Doctor Sleep from a few years back, I would love to see a novella (or even short story) continuation of It. From what I understand, a novel would definitely be out of the question. Which is fine, I'm sort of into shorter works these days because of considerations of time (as I'm sure many of us are)...
