BY STEPHEN KING
The master of horror returns in this much-anticipated sequel to his 1977 classic, "The Shining". Grown up and struggling with alcoholism (like his father before him), as well as the terrible memories of that fateful winter at the Overlook Hotel, Danny Torrance has found his calling: using his power of "the shine" to comfort the dying. But he is soon faces a bigger task. He and a young girl named Abra must stop a band of wanderers called The True Knot, quasi-immortals who torture children gifted with the shine and live of the "steam" that rises from their writhing bodies.
