OVERVIEW:

THE STORY:

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chesters 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 gardeners 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 physicians 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 isnt just short. Its running out.

Here is some information on the book from Stephen Kings official site, with an answer from Stephen King himslef:

QUESTION: In his book The Art of Darkness, Douglas Winter quotes King as saying "I worked on a book called The Cannibals–I had started it five years before, but it was called Under the Dome then. It didnt get finished either time." So according to this quote The Cannibals and Under the Dome are the same book, or more precisely two attempts to write the same story. However SKs comments in the introduction to Blaze suggest that these are two different books. Could you please clarify this, Ms. Mod?

MR. KINGS RESPONSE: Those stories were two very different attempts to utilize the same idea, which concerns itself with how people behave when they are cut off from the society theyve always belonged to. Also, my memory of THE CANNIBALS is that it, like NEEDFUL THINGS, was a kind of social comedy. The new UNDER THE DOME is played dead straight.

You can also see Mr. King reading from UNDER THE SOME in the DVD we have in stock called DISCUSSIONS ON WRITING here at the Overlook.

This is reportedly going to be one of Stephen Kings longest novels ever published and a heavy book, so shipping is slightly higher than usual.

Due November 2009.
