Supernatural Thriller Coming from Stephen King and Son

Writing for a living definitely runs in the King family. Stephen King, master of thriller, horror, and the supernatural has two sons, Owen and Joe. Both authors who take after their father. King’s wife, Tabitha is also an author. What a family!

It was announced that Stephen King and son, Owen would be writing a book together. This isn’t the first time King has partnered up with one of his kids to write a book. King worked with his older son, Joe, to produce work before. The upcoming novel will be his first collaboration with Owen.

The book, Sleeping Beauties, will be a supernatural thriller (of course). The story imagines what happens when women of the world are cocooned in their sleep and men are left to live in the world alone. According to King’s website, “[i]f they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place.” 

That sure sounds like a ‘King’ story! Sleeping Beauties hits shelves on September 26th.
