The long anticipated sequel to The Shining, titled Dr. Sleep, is now official! There aren’t many details available about Dr. Sleep — Stephen King broke the news on his website yesterday in an item about two tweets long — but he did read an excerpt at George Mason University last weekend. It appears the sequel follows a grownup Danny Torrance, a hospice worker who helps patients die painlessly. He comes into contact with a clan of roving, psychic vampires called The Tribe. King says he’s close to finishing the manuscript.

See/hear the excerpt of Dr. Sleep below:
