King's Latest

Publishers Weekly reports, October 28th, that Stephen King's latest work is an audiobook, Blood and Smoke, that will be released with no print counterpart. It consists of three stories, two of them original, all on the theme of cigarette smoking, and read by King himself. The audio runs three and a half hours, and will be published by Simon & Schuster on casette and CD November 22.

Time's Next Fiction

Time Magazine's latest fiction publishing venture begins Monday with the first installment of a five-part, 20,000 word work by Caleb Carr, best known for his novel The Alienist. The near-future novella, called ''Killing Time'', will run in a series of ''Vision 21'' issues of the magazine running from now through the first half of 2000. Publishers Weekly reports the story is set in 2024 and concerns a criminologist who begins to question all knowledge of the recent past, in part because it relies so much on computer records. Carr plans to expand the work for later publication by Random House. Time Magazine has only very rarely published fiction, including Arthur C. Clarke's short story ''The Hammer of God'' (later expanded into a novel) in Fall 1992.
