Stephen King Reveals Cover Art for Shining Sequel

Scribner has shared the hardcover art for Stephen King‘s upcoming sequel to The Shining. We’ve embedded the online poster with the cover above–what do you think?

In a long interview with Entertainment Weekly, King talked about his writing career, his children and the idea behind the sequel. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

Driving back and forth from Maine to Florida, which I do twice a year, I’m always seeing all these recreational vehicles — the bounders in the Winnebagos. I always think to myself, ‘Who is in those things?’ You pass them a thousand times at rest stops. They’re always the ones wearing the shirts that say ‘God Does Not Deduct From a Lifespan Time Spent Fishing.’ They’re always lined up at the McDonald’s, slowing the whole line down. And I always thought to myself, ‘There’s something really sinister about those people because they’re so unobtrusive, yet so pervasive.’ I just wanted to use that. It would be the perfect way to travel around America and be unobtrusive if you were really some sort of awful creature.
