The long-awaited follow-up, entitled Doctor Sleep, will hit shelves on 24 September next year (13), the author confirmed on his website on Tuesday (18Sep12).

The novel will centre around a hospice worker who helps his patients die painlessly, and comes into contact with a group of psychic vampires.

King's 1977 classic was adapted for the big screen three years later and the film, directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Jack Nicholson, became a cult favourite.
