It appears Stephen King will be returning to the horror genre. According to Neil Gaiman, King is working on a new novel titled Joyland, about an amusement park serial killer.

And what would happen if he were to suffer a sudden death before it was finished?

“If I got hit by a taxi cab, like Margaret Mitchell… Joyland wouldn’t be done but Joe [Hill; son] could finish it, in a breeze. His style is almost indistinguishable from mine. His ideas are better than mine. Being around Joe is like being next to a Catherine Wheel throwing off sparks, all these ideas.”

The sequel to The Shining titled Dr. Sleep won’t be released until 2013 and there’s no telling when Joyland will be out, but there’s a lot to look forward to if you’re a fan of Stephen King.
