If there’s one celebrity I’d love to have a chance to just sit down and have a chat with more than anyone else, it would be Stephen King. The man has written so many iconic stories, and IT is my personal favorite book ever.
I know I’m far from alone in my King worship, and would list him alongside legends like H.P. Lovecraft, and Edgar Allan Poe, without any hesitation, although King has enough humility that he’d probably shy away from that.
King has published over 50 full-length novels and over 200 short stories, and at age 71, he shows no signs of slowing down. Earlier this week, King’s official website announced the release of his latest work, The Institute.
The Institute hits store shelves on September 10th, and runs 576 pages, which really isn’t that long on the King scale after epic-length tomes like The Stand. Below is the official synopsis, which lays out what fans need to know.
A blend of Firestarter and IT? Shut up and take my money. Included below is the official cover art for The Institute. One wonders how long it’ll take for King’s latest novel to find its way into the hands of a movie or TV studio.
