Remember when Stephen King
announced that he was retiring? That was
more than a decade and at least six books
ago, and he s done nothing but crank out
best-sellers ever since.
The latest novel---likely to be No 1 next
week---is appropriately titled Revival, for it
marks a return to true horror for the modern
master of the genre. There are no soul-
sucking vampires as in Doctor Sleep, or
speculative historical fiction about the assas-
sination of John F Kennedy as in 11/22/63.
Revival spans half a century, but at its
heart are a young boy---Jamie Morton---and
a New England pastor named the Rev
Charles Jacobs who captivates him from
the moment they meet in 1962.
The plot is set in motion when the good
reverend starts to heal the sick using some-
thing he calls an "Electrical Nerve Stimu-
lator." Over the years, as he ducks in and
out of narrator Jamie's life, he learns how
to harness electricity to a greater and greater
degree until he's literally ready to revive the
It's no fun spoiling all the scares, but
here's a phrase---spoken by Jacobs to Jamie
early in the novel---that neatly sums it up:
"The road to hell is paved with good inten-
tions. And lit with electric lights."
King fans won't find anything to complain
about here. At just over 400 pages it's one
of his quicker reads and any hint of the
supernatural is blended with tender
moments that ground the characters. "Home
is the place where they want you to stay
longer," narrates Jamie as he returns to the
Maine town where his doomed relationship
with Jacobs began. If this is your first King
novel, it's not a bad choice. You don't need
to know anything about his oeuvre coming
in, and if you like the writing style, there
are dozens of other King books you'll prob-

Nicki Minaj is apologising for a video that
some feel uses Nazi imagery.
The rapper posted on Twitter on Tuesday that
she didn't create the concept for the lyric video
for her song Only. She wrote: "(I) take full respon-
sibility if it has offended anyone. I'd never condone
Nazism in my art."
The animated video, which debuted Friday,
features a swarm of soldiers with red armbands
featuring a logo that has been compared to a
swastika. The logo also appears on Minaj's chest
in the clip.
The logo features the acronym "YM," which
stands for Young Money, the rap group featuring
Minaj, Lil Wayne and Drake. Both rappers are
featured on the song along with Chris Brown.
The video has more than two million views.
Minaj also tweeted that the video's producer and
the "person in charge" of overseeing the video
are both Jewish.
Minaj faced similar criticism earlier this year
when she used of a photo of Malcolm X with a
rifle in his hands and juxtaposed it with a racial
slur for a song's artwork. (AP)
