From Publishers Lunch

King's Pulp Case StudyStephen King's latest experiment is a "pulp-style" crime novel, THE COLORADO KID, to be published by Hard Case Crime in mass market paperback this October. The company describes the book as "the story of two veteran newspapermen and their investigation into the mysterious death of a man on an island off the coast of Maine." Hard Case's books are issued in collaboration with Dorchester Publishing. Simon & Schuster will publish audio and e-book editions.
King says in the release, "Hard Case Crime presents good, clean, bare-knuckled storytelling, and even though The Colorado Kid is probably more bleu than outright noir, I think it has some of those old-fashioned kick-ass story-telling virtues. It ought to; this is where I started out, and I'm pleased to be back."
