the dark tower

a couple weeks ago i posted a snippet of the dark tower series, from book six, by stephen king.

i've finally finished reading book seven. it's been 25 years since he started the series with short stories. the first book begins, rather famously, with a rather simple line.

"the man in black fled west across the desert, and the gunslinger followed."

if you're not a fan of king's horror, stuff like dreamcatcher (which made me positively ill, something that's really hard to make happen with a book), worry thyself not. the dark tower is not that kind of series. it's vaguely a western.

as you read, remember that ka is a wheel.

i: the gunslinger
ii: the drawing of the three
iii: the wastelands
iv: wizard and glass
v: wolves of the calla
vi: song of susannah
vii: the dark tower
