Like a good scare?


If you are looking for a good scary read for the Halloween season, who better than author Stephen King to scare the pants off you?  His new book, Doctor Sleep, picks up with the life of Dan Torrence (from The Shining).  Now middle-aged, Dan has been drifting around for decades trying to shake his father's legacy of despair, alchoholism, and violence. He settles in at a job at a nursing home where he uses his shining power to comfort the dying in their last moments.  Then, he meets ups with 12-year old, Abra Stone, whose spectacular gift (the brightest shining ever seen) draws him into her life and awakens his own demons.  An epic battle of good and evil results and he finds himself fighting for Abra's very life and soul!
