Stephen King Officially at Work on Sequel to 'The Shining'

Psychobabble recently reported that Rochester, NY's Dryden Theater will be screening the original, extended, rarely-screened cut of Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Stephen King's The Shining on October 22nd. A week later, news is spreading that King will be fleshing out his story even further. The author's official site reveals that his long-rumored sequel to The Shining is currently in the works. According to Stephen King.com:

"It's now official--Stephen is working on Dr. Sleep, the sequel to The Shining... Dr. Sleep's plot includes a traveling group of vampires called The Tribe which is part of the passage he read from."

Although I can't find any such information on King's site, Dread Central.com states that grown-up Danny Torrance will be a member of that touring vampire troupe. So, does this mean that little Danny is now a vampire? Or maybe he's just a sort of psychic mascot to the vampires, like Sookie Stackhouse on "True Blood". I guess we'll find out when King completes his book. Considering the guy's prolificness, he'll likely be finishing up page 6,052 early tomorrow afternoon. Until then, here he is reading an excerpt from Dr. Sleep at George Mason University last weekend.
