Corey Taylor may have two best-selling memoirs under his belt, but the Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman says he’d like to try his hand at writing a different type of book for his next release.

"I want to start branching out like, I’ve got some ideas for novels that I want to work on,” he tells ABC News Radio. “That takes a little time though because you’re not transcribing things that have happened to you.  You’re creating this whole world, and to me it has to be extraordinary if you’re gonna do something like that; and I wanna come from a kinda of a unique standpoint, where I’m not just writing something that other people have done before.”

While Taylor is keeping mum on the details of the kinds of novels he’d like to write, he does have a few concepts in mind for the upcoming books. “I’ve had several pretty cool ideas over the years that I’d never really got the chance to kind of do anything with. But I’ve kept them in the back of my head,” he explains. “So after the success of the first book, it’s given me a little more confidence to jump out and do something that maybe people are ready for.”
