it looks like King's new book is a return to the style of books like The Stand or Needful Things
Under the Dome
"On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester’s Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener’s hand is severed as “the dome” comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when"or if"it will go away. Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens"town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician’s assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing"even murder"to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn’t just short. It’s running out."
it's apparently an idea he's been kicking around for over 25 years, the first draft was a manuscript called The Cannibals, in which a group of people are trapped in an apartment building
looks promising for fans of King's true horror works, and it looks to be a huge read, the submitted manuscript is 1500 pages, about 400 more than longest novel The Stand
