Stephen King fans, it looks like there's plenty to look forward to from the master of horror this year. His Hulu series, Castle Rock, is set to make its debut this summer, and he has two books on the way, too.

The author has a thrilling new horror novel, The Outsider, due out May 11. Now, he's detailed his newest book, Elevation, due out Oct. 30.

The 144-page novella is set in King's signature Castle Rock, Maine, and as SYFY explains, is a "riveting, extraordinarily eerie and moving story about a man whose mysterious affliction brings a small town together."

The news source says that it fits into King's recent pattern of releasing releasing two titles a year: "One a full-sized novel and one a shorter work or a collection."

Of course, these two new written works are on top of Hulu's Castle Rock, that Pet Sematary remake and the It sequel.

Our horror-loving hearts are ready.
