No More Steve?!?

OK, I have been reading Black House (just finished it today, actually), the second boook co-written by Stephen King and Peter Straub. It's the sequel to the first one they did, The Talisman, and it was beautiful, both of them. The other thing I liked was that it brought together this story with the 'Dark Tower' story (which makes a LOT of sense if you think about it)...didn't finish the Dark Tower story, just connected them, and alluded to the main character being in on the end of it (which also makes a lot of sense). But recently, Entertainment Weekly ran, as it's cover story, the fact that Steve says he's retiring and not doing anymore books. Now, I understand, he's been writing for, geez, what almost 30 years? Done something like 30 novels, 5 collections of short stories, several screenplays for screen and TV, and several nonfiction pieces? The man's EARNED his retirement...but i was REALLY pissed at the fact that he might not finish the Dark Tower story.

Well, I am pleased to announce that this will not be the case. According to official releases: "When asked on a recent episode of The View about his plans to retire, Stephen said that he has enough projects to keep him busy for the next 2 years and that he'll make a decision about retiring then. Don't worry, folks, finishing The Dark Tower books is first on the "to do list" during this next 2 years."


For more info on the direction of the Dark Tower story, read the interview that Steve did with, well, himself.

I am Chaos's adrenaline shot.
