Trailer for 11.22.63

Here is a trailer for the UK paperback edition of 11.22.63

And here he talks about and read from the book.

Book news from Scribner

Posted: March 5, 2012, 00:12
Scribner has announced that 11/22/63 will be out in paperback in October 2012 and also that both The Talisman and Black House will be re-released in hardcover in November. That and the fact that there are no other King book scheduled for this fall might get the optimist hoping that a third book about Jack Sawyer is closer than we know… Well OK that is probably not the case but you can hope, right?

Original ending of 11/22/63

Posted: December 19, 2011, 23:18
Originally King had a different ending to his latest book 11/22/63 but after a suggestion from his son, Joe Hill, he changed it and now it looks like we might actually get to read the original ending as well… Here are what the moderator of King’s official board had to say about it.

I've read both of them and have been meaning to ask him if he would consider putting the first version on the site so people could compare. He told me he'd changed it because Joe had seen some problems with the way the first one was written but I don't know with 100% certainty whether Joe gave him specific ideas for the rewrite.

And then…

I was able to ask Steve about this, so here's his answer. Joe only told him that Jake had to meet Sadie again when she was an old lady but how that happened was completely Steve's idea so what we've read in the book was all Steve's writing based on Joe's suggestion to have Jake see Sadie one more time . He also told me it would be okay to put up the original version of the ending but I need to wait at least a month before doing so to give more people the chance to read it as published.

So, keep checking King’s site for that original ending to pop up.

Thanks to Pablo.

Posted: November 2, 2011, 15:57
The moderator of King's message board just gave us some additional info about the limited edition of 11/22/63.

"My understanding is that 850 will be going on sale. There are more that were signed (1,000 total) that are being held back for author copies and for the publisher's use."

Tip sheets are flat signed (which just means no personalization). They are not numbered editions, just signed and will not be personalized as they are being shipped out immediately and Steve does not have the time to personalize them in any case with the book tour coming up.

Personally I don't like that they are limiting this to fans in the US though, that's just wrong if you ask me...

Reviews for 11/22/63

Posted: September 19, 2011, 09:14
Reviews of King's upcoming 11/22/63 are starting to pop up here and there on the net but I have to admit that I haven't read one of them from start to finish. The ones that I have found reveal way too much for my taste so be ware if you find one, there are spoilers. And why post reviews so early? The book is still 1½ month away...

King's next book announced!

Posted: March 2, 2011, 16:32

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas,
President Kennedy died, and the world changed.

If you had the chance to change history, would you?
Would the consequences be worth it?

Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.

Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake’s life—a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.
