It's been a long time coming but Stephen King's highly anticipated sequel to The Shining is set to hit bookstores on September 24th 2013.

Titled Doctor Sleep, it follows Danny Torrance who survived the wrath of both his father and the malevolent Overlook hotel. He'll now be a middle-aged man but will still possess his special powers.

In the new book, he meets a young girl who he must save from a group of murderous paranormals, who live off the "shining" that special children produce as they are slowly tortured to death. He'll be aided by a prescient cat.

It's billed as "an epic war between good and evil" and "a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining". Sounds pretty good to us.

It's all gone a bit Shining crazy of late. Not only do we have this book to look forward to but there's also a documentary about Kubrick's movie adaptation called Room 237 and the strange news that there may be a big screen prequel in the works.

Are you excited about Doctor Sleep?
