Hard Case Crime to Publish New Stephen King Novel

Hard Case Crime

In a press release today, Hard Case Crime announced that it would publish a new Stephen King book in June 2013.

Titled Joyland, the story is set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973 and tells of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

"I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts," said the author. "That combo made Hard Case Crime the perfect venue for this book, which is one of my favorites. I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, we're going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book."

King's previous novella for Hard Case Crime, The Colorado Kid, is the inspiration for the SyFy original drama Haven.
