Stephen King is on the Web again.
Starting March 5, a portion of the author's upcoming novel "Dreamcatcher" will be excerpted in three free installments on the Internet site of Time magazine. The full book, published by Scribner, will come out in traditional paper form on March 20.
Audio of the excerpts, read by actor Jeffrey DeMunn of "The Green Mile," also will be available on the Time site, www.time.com.
Starting with his e-novella "Riding the Bullet," King has become the virtual symbol of online books. Last year, he self-published the serialized e-novel "The Plant," which has been suspended while King pursues other projects.
