Borders has an exerpt from King's Lisey's Story

The first thing I read on line this morning was an email from Borders pointing me toward an excerpt from Stephen King's new novel, Lisey's Story and a small interview.

The books looks interesting. The plot is a lot more vintage King than his last work, Cell. According to the description,
Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a twenty-five-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, bestselling novelist and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and bools. Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went -- a place that both terrified and healed him, that could eat him alive or give him the ideas he needed in order to live. Now it's Lisey's turn to face Scott's demons, Lisey's turn to go to Boo'ya Moon. What begins as a widow's effort to sort through the papers of her celebrated husband becomes a nearly fatal journey into the darkness he inhabited.

The life and death of writers and the lines between imaginary places and the real world are all motifs that King works well within.
