Margaret Atwood isn’t the only wildly popular author releasing a scary tale next week.

Stephen King’s sixty-first novel, The Institute, will be released September 10.

The novel’s concept — that of children with supernatural powers being detained and discarded by a powerful organization — dates back decades, though as the New York Times points out, it has an eerie echo of today’s politics.

The similarity is purely coincidence and not intentional, but as King told the paper: “If you tell the truth about the way people behave, sometimes you find out that life really does imitate art.”

Check out more of King’s thoughts on the evolution of his books as well as the upcoming one in his interview with the New York Times.
