Rejigging good-ol' plots

Horror writer Stephen king has conjured up a rather (un)novel idea for his next book, titled Cell.

Everyone who is speaking on his/ her mobile at a given instant becomes the victim of a mystery pulse that turns them into deranged killers.

The Shining updated for the globalized world, anyone?

Only those who don't own a cellphone can hope to escape the mayhem. Clayton, the novel's protagonist, must save his son before the virus gets to him.

Incidentally, the book's publicity is being driven majorly via cellphones. How's that for an irony?
