But with a new King book comes new King happenings and the author was recently on hand for an Under the Dome signing in MD, which resulted in three juicy nuggets of info winding up on Lilja's Library. First up, when asked if his new novel about a small town in Maine that finds itself trapped within its city limits by a forcefield would be made into a movie, King said no, but that HBO was planning on turning it into a miniseries. Unfortunately there are no details beyond that.
He did however mention that he will be writing a new Dark Tower novel that will follow a few of his series' supporting players somewhere between the events of books 5 and 6. King, however, won't even begin writing the new entry, titled The Wind Through the Key Hole, for another eight months, so if you haven't read The Dark Tower, you've still got time to catch up.
The third major bit of news concerns the Talisman. King confirmed that the recent film adaptation attempt has died, but that Peter Straub and he are definitely teaming up together for a third Talisman novel. Some minor news beyond that, such as where the TV adaptation of Cell stands, slipped out as well, so click on to watch the full Q&A session.
