Three years ago, a book was published in Bulgaria. Nothing strange about that you might say, and I agree. But the book we’re talking about is none other than Shining in the Dark, edited by yours truly. This was the true first edition of the book and it was later followed by editions in the US, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden, the UK, Serbia, Brazil, Japan and France. During 2021 it will also be released in Greece and at least one more country. 13 translations published in 26 different editions…and counting.

All this during a three-year period. Not bad if you ask me!

Ezra Miller Is Trashcan Man In The Stand

Ezra Miller has a big and somewhat secret role in The Stand. He plays Trashcan Man and today EW has the first photo of him in character. The casting details have been kept under wraps until now, after months of speculation that goth rocker Marilyn Mason was cast in the role. However, Manson was originaly scheduled to play another role in the show...

“We were talking to [Manson] early on about playing The Kid, who drives Trashcan Man to Vegas,” Cavell reveals. The showrunner noted he was initially excited to include The Kid because he’s a colorful character from King’s extended version of The Stand who wasn’t in the previous 1994 miniseries adaptation of the material. But during the writing process, Cavell realized – as presumably did King when he completed his first edition of the book – there just wasn’t enough of a reason to have the character in the story. “We thought we were going to be able to restore the character of The Kid, but there really isn’t a lot of reason for The Kid to exist."
