Stephen King announces yet another Dark Tower book, coming in 2012

03.10.2011by: Eric Walkuski

That Stephen King is sneaky. Even though he wrapped up his DARK TOWER series with the appropriately titled "The Dark Tower" in 2004, he's actually been hard at work on yet another entry in the successful franchise. (Which, in case you've been asleep for the past year, is currently being made into an epic multi-platform movie and television show.) Titled "The Wind in the Keyhole", it takes place somewhere in between the books, so it's not exactly a sequel to the last installment. (As I'm really ignorant when it comes to these books, I won't attempt to explain just where this new one fits in.)

Turns out this thing has already been written, and it's scheduled too hit bookshelves sometimes in 2012. This announcement comes on the heels of the news that King has a time-travel novel coming out this November titled "11/22/63". Man sure knows how to keep busy.

Here's a partial statement from King regarding "The Wind in the Keyhole": At some point, while worrying over the copyedited manuscript of the next book (11/22/63, out November 8th), I started thinking—and dreaming—about Mid-World again. The major story of Roland and his ka-tet was told, but I realized there was at least one hole in the narrative progression: what happened to Roland, Jake, Eddie, Susannah, and Oy between the time they leave the Emerald City (the end of Wizard and Glass) and the time we pick them up again, on the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis (the beginning of Wolves of the Calla)?

Hope that means something to at least some of you King fans out there. For the rest of the man's statement, click right HERE.

Extra Tidbit: One of the many things Stephen King gets a residual check for is Syfy's "Haven", starring Emily Rose, above.
