Remember that time when Stephen King wrote a Batman story?

“Batman and Robin Have an Altercation” offers a different take on the Dark Knight.

NPR’s new Too Hot for Radio podcast does, and they enlisted Avatar actor Stephen Lang to read it in their first episode.

Titled “Batman and Robin Have an Altercation,” the story originally appeared in the 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar and was included in King’s collection The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. It’s about a father and son, as the father struggles with Alzheimer’s Disease and can only remember the time he and his son dressed up as Batman and Robin for Halloween. Have a listen to it on Soundcloud; the story starts around the 5:30 mark.
