NEW YORK (AP) - Stephen King is back in the e-book game.
The horror master is releasing a short story in digital format only. Scribner announced Thursday that “Mile 81,” a “chilling story” set at a rest stop on the Maine Turnpike, will go on sale Sept. 1 at a suggested price of $2.99. The new book will also include an excerpt from King’s upcoming novel, “11/22/63.” Klout, a San Francisco-based website that helps measure online influence, will allow some users to download “Mile 81” for free.
King has a long history of writing stories as e-exclusives. His “Riding the Bullet” novella was an early Internet sensation when it came out in 2000.
