Stephen King refuses to quit

Bad news for readers looking forward to Stephen King's retirement: besides just publishing a new novel and promising two more in 2006, King has signed on with Marvel Comics for a Gunslinger series beginning next April. (Art will be by Jae Lee, who's also worked with Michael Chabon.) While comics were a primal influence for King, recently he went back to his real roots and wrote the first paragraph for a finish-the-story contest in the newspaper Weekly Reader.
