Stephen King's 11/22/63 will be available this November and British publisher Hodder & Stoughton has released a trailer to promote the upcoming time travel novel.

“Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.

Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake’s life—a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.”

Even though Stephen King releases generally receive plenty of press coverage, this particular novel seems to be receiving more attention. The book isn't even out yet, but the film rights have already been purchased by director/writer Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs) with the intention of it being his next film.

11/22/63 will be available in hardcover, digital, and audio formats starting on November 8th, 2011.
