Kev reports that Ed McBain will edit a new anthology, which will contain a new King story.

Here is what he says about it in his newsletter:
...I [McBain] have to do a novella for an anthology I'm editing for Tor Books. My own contribution is titled MERELY HATE. I've done the research for it, now all I have to do is write 20,000 words. The other writers from whom I have commitments for original never-before-published novellas, are -- in alphabetical order -- Lawrence Block, Mary Higgins Clark, Jeffery Deaver, Stephen King, Sharyn Mc Crumb, Walter Mosely, Joyce Carol Oates, Anne Perry, and Donald Westlake.

Bev Vincent talked to Ed himself and he told Bev that he has King's new novella in hand and that it is absolutely marvelous. He also said that he estimates the book will be out in 2004.

Dreamcatcher has been moved up to March 21, 2003 and the role of April Rimbauer The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer will be played by New York actress Courtney Taylor Burness.
