Here is something that totally passed outside of my radar until I got a question about it on facebook (thanks Hazel).

Apperentley King mentioned that he is working on a book called Mr. Mercedes. It's not supernatural, but a detective novel involving a person who drove a car into a crowd of people and then taunted the Detective who handled the case after his retirement. What started as a short story has turned into a 500 page manuscript.

On King's messageboard someone asked about it and the Moderator there said it would be at least 2014 before we see it, and that Mr. Mercedes is a working title that King isn't real happy with.

Here is the video where King talks about it.

He talks about the book between 6:20 and 15:38 in the video.
