Collection for 2024 announced, “You Like It Darker”

In the latest episode of Talking Scared, Stephen King announces a new collection for 2024 called “You Like It Darker”.

Then last year, there’s a story.
It’ll be in a book that comes out next year called You Like It Darker.

One of them is called The Dreamers.

I tell myself stories before I go to sleep.

He opens his eyes and they turn black and these tendrils start to come out of his eyeballs.
They just creep me out.
I couldn’t think about that anymore.
I put that aside.

that’s huge, that’s apocalyptic, some huge darkness that’s sentient, that had something
like that?
I thought that goes with the tendrils and the eyeballs.
I had that story like that.
But I couldn’t think about it at night.
I couldn’t do that because it just was so creepy to me.
