The author recently stated that he had five more books to write and then, "That's it. I'm done."
But King, 54, has said he'd quit before and his agent, Arthur Greene, was skeptical.
Kroft a lifesaver
NEW YORK (AP) -- CBS News "60 Minutes" correspondent Steve Kroft is being credited as a lifesaver.
Kroft, 56, heard wheels spinning in the sand on the beach in front of his Long Island, N.Y., home last Saturday. A car was stuck and he figured the owner would eventually extricate it.
Yet the car went nowhere. The engine caught fire, and Kroft ran to the beach when he couldn't see the driver.
He reached into the smoke-filled car and pulled out a 76-year-old New Jersey woman who had been listed as missing for a day and had diabetes.
Within 30 seconds of pulling her out, the car's passenger compartment was fully engulfed in flames, he said.
