Super Cool!

(AP) Bangor, Maine -- Legendary novelist Stephen King announced today that he plans to release special editions of three of his most famous novels, with new updated endings.

King says that the books, "The Stand," "It" and "The Dark Tower" are among his favorites, but does not believe their eventual conclusions have stood the test of time.

"As an artist you are constantly growing," King said. "Part of that growth is being able to admit that some of your earlier works may have been flawed. Taking the time to go back with more experienced eyes is a matter of having respect for your work, your readership and your overall artistic vision."

King said that in particular he felt that "It" needed to be updated.

"As I've raised my three children and helped raise my three grandchildren I've realized that they way I sexualized prepubescent children at the end that work was not only inappropriate to the tale as a whole, but reckless and exploitative."

King refused to elaborate on what he will change about the endings to "The Stand" and "The Dark Tower."

"I chose those two books because one introduces an important character and the other book concludes his history," King said. "In both cases, that character's story arc in the books could have been improved. This is my chance, as the author, to act as the hand of God."
