Charles Ardai, editor of Hard Case Crime:
Joyland is a breathtaking, beautiful, heartbreaking book. It's a whodunit, it's a carny novel, it's a story about growing up and growing old, and about those who don't get to do either because death comes for them before their time. Even the most hard-boiled readers will find themselves moved. When I finished it, I sent a note saying, "Goddamn it, Steve, you made me cry."Doctor Sleep, King's sequel to The Shining, will be published on September 24, 2013.
