Хорошо, что Стив пишет. Но как-то уже не цепляет...
Интересно, роман будет или повесть (в нашем понимании)?

Издательство Scribner объявило, что роман "Cell" будет выпущен в феврале 2006-го года!..
Странно, в описании аукционного лота было сказано что роман выйдет в 2006 или даже в 2007 году. Так что, скорее всего, новость следует читать так: "издательство Scribner объявило, что роман "Cell" будет выпущен в феврале 2007-го года" ... хотя... мечтать не вредно! Даешь зомбяков!!!

Here is a description of Cell from Scribner:
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Civilization doesn't end with a bang or a whimper. It ends with a call on your cell phone.
What happens on the afternoon of October 1 came to be known as the Pulse, a signal sent though every operating cell phone that turns its user into something...well, something less than human. Savage, murderous, unthinking-and on a wanton rampage. Terrorist act? Cyber prank gone haywire? It really doesn't matter, not to the people who avoided the technological attack. What matters to them is surviving the aftermath. Before long a band of them-"normies" is how they think of themselves-have gathered on the grounds of Gaiten Academy, where the headmaster and one remaining student have something awesome and terrifying to show them on the school's moonlit soccer field. Clearly there can be no escape. The only option is to take them on.
CELL is classic Stephen King, a story of gory horror and white-knuckling suspense that makes the unimaginable entirely plausible and totally fascinating.
I got the following info about Cell just now:
On January 24, 2006 we publish CELL. A guilty pleasure in the tradition of Carrie, Salem's Lot and The Shining, CELL asks what happens when cell phones become transmitters of a signal that drive people instantly mad and violent. King's plot gallops as a few phoneless heroes try to escape the mayhem everywhere and save the world.
Stephen King does not have a cell phone.
Here is a new description of Cell. This one is from the UK publisher, Hodder & Stoughton:
'Civilization slipped into its second dark age on an unsurprising track of blood but with a speed that could not have been foreseen by even the most pessimistic futurist. By Halloween, every major city from New York to Moscow stank to the empty heavens and the world as it had been was a memory.' The event became known as The Pulse. The virus was carried by every cell phone operating within the entire world. Within ten hours, most people would be dead or insane.
A young artist Clayton Riddell realises what is happening. And together with Tom McCourt and a teenage girl called Alice, he flees the devastation of explosive, burning Boston, desperate to reach his son before his son switches on his little red mobile phone…
From Literary Guild:
Stephen King is back with his first stand-alone novel since his mega-selling From A Buick 8. This terrifying tale is already being compared to The Stand: Mayhem is unleashed when a pulse from an unknown source turns all cell phone users into murderous psychopaths. This is classic King.
Walking along a busy street in Boston, Clayton Riddell is euphoric, having sold not one, but two novels to a publisher. But he’s stunned out of his reverie by the sound of a ringing cell phone and the unimaginable sight of its owner, a businesswoman, viciously attacking the ice cream man inside a Mr. Softee truck. She’s not the only one to suddenly go berserk. Looking around, Clay is horrified to see people attacking each other with savage intensity.
Desperate to escape the madness, Clay takes refuge in his hotel with Tom McCourt and Alice Maxwell, a teenager they rescue from the clutches of a knife-wielding maniac. Are they the only ones still sane? Worried about his wife and son, Clay is determined to get home. At nightfall, when the “phone-crazies” come together in snarling packs that retreat into the shadows, their small group gathers anything they can find to use as weapons as they make their way to Tom’s nearby hometown.
What happens next is what makes Stephen King the master of horror. For while Clay, Alice and Tom try to sleep, the crazies infiltrate their dreams. And what they see brings forth a fierce determination to survive, even if it means becoming killers themselves…. Explicit violence and language.
