Watch Stephen King read the first chapter of Shining sequel, Dr Sleep….

February 23rd, 2012 by Marc Comments

We’ve known it was coming, and we’ve heard a few clips already, but it’s a treat to hear Stephen King himself reading the first chapter from his sequel to The Shining, Dr Sleep. And oh, my… despite our fears, it sounds really good and it’s great to hear the audience laugh at the ‘something good to eat’ line.

The video was filmed at the Savannah Book Festival on February 19. King finished work on the first draft in early November 2011, so we wait with baited breath…

I guess its time to dig out The Shining and read it again because Danny Torrance is back. Thanks to Daily Dread for the heads up…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
