Well, it looks like a it's going to be a pretty good year to be a Stephen King fan. The constant reader can look forward to two King novels -- Doctor Sleep and Joyland. We can also expect several books about King, and we will find Mr. King all over the television. Both Syfy and CBS will be running Stephen King television shows.
Here is a short list of some things we can expect in the upcoming year:
2013: Haven was renewed by Syfy for another year.
2013: Stephen King Desk Calendar.
Cemetery Dance still lists this book coming out in 2013. I ordered it in. . . 2011ish ? I wonder if they remember! I'm looking forward to it.2013: The Illustrated Stephen King Movie Trivia Book. (More HERE)
Cemetery Dance describes the book, saying, "1,000 questions to test your knowledge of the movies, miniseries, and television episodes based on ideas conjured from the imagination of the King of Horror, along with more than 50 special illustration-based questions from Cemetery Dance favorite artist Glenn Chadbourne."January 23, 2013: Limited Edition of The Shining.

March, 2013: Ghost Brothers Soundtrack CD/DVD Coming March 2013
April 2, 2013: The Dark Tower Companion, Bev Vincent.
I discussed this book with Bev Vincent in my recent interview. In part, Vincent said:
This is the first book to address the Marvel adaptations and their place in the canon (or not). I look at each graphic novel series and underline the places where it provides new scenes or material, and the places where it diverges from or contradicts King’s novels. I also provide summaries of the extra material found in each issue for people who haven’t read the graphic novels.

June 4, 2013: Joyland
What's not to like? Stephen King sets a killer loose in a theme park. Nifty.September 24, 2013: Doctor Sleep
Here's a book I'm really looking forward to! It's a sequel to The Shining! King doesn't revisit his works ver often,and I think this is a great one to go back to.October, 2013: CARRIE
I agree with the sentiments Rod Pocowatchit at The Wichita Eagle expresed: "I’m generally not a fan of remakes, but it’s rumored this new version is truer to King’s novel than Brian DePalma’s film that made Sissy Spacek a star. And the casting is inspired — Moretz is one of the best young actors today, and Julianne Moore should chew up the scenery nicely as Carrie’s crazy-pants mother." (HERE)
