Stephen King shines again?

The high priest of horror fiction told an audience at his book reading in Toronto this week that he’s plotting a sequel to his 1977 classic "The Shining."

The book, tentatively titled "Doctor Sleep," would be set 40 years later, and focus on young Danny, who now lives in upstate New York and uses his psychic powers to help terminal patients make the transition into death. (He supposedly supplements his income by using "the shining" at the horsetrack, too).
