    :check: List of official discussion threads for SK books

    Just thought this would come in handy, no need to toil in the search. For the Dark Tower books, see the appropriate section of the forum, of course. I couldn't find threads for several books, so I marked those, and I would love to receive links if those threads do exist; however, my search didn't turn anything up. Also, the links are the same for The Talisman and Black House, as well as for Desperation and The Regulators (which is not a real discussion thread as such but a poll). Spoilers, obviously, apply.

    Nice work! I will create a few of the missing topics soon, I reckon. I am sort of methodically going through all the classic King books, and several need topics, apparently.

    There's a fine line between stupid and clever.

    Default Weird Question...

    Hey, not sure where to ask this.

    My girlfriend hasn't read any Stephen King (well Misery and The Mist recently) and she is finally interested in getting into him.

    If I want her to get the full effect of the Dark Tower and all of the related books, then what order should I have her read them in?

    The various stories weave in and out from the various non specific Dark Tower books (Black House, Insomnia, etc..), but what would be the ideal order for a new reader to get the full effect?

    Didn't see this anywhere, but maybe it has been posted already.

    Actually, it may be considered a discussion thread, with a specific poll as a bonus.

    Jean, thanks for updating the list with the new Tommyknockers thread. Perhaps we should make it a point to gradually start discussions for the other missing books? Some pretty big ones still missing...

    First off, Awesome job, Pablo. Many thanks for putting this together. I'm sure I'll be utilizing this index in the near future.

    Second, I'll second the need to start discussions for the missing books from the list.





    Edit: No need for a thread for "Faithful". It is a blasphemous book that should be burned on sight!!!!

    I'm amazed we still don't have discussion threads for Different Seasons and The Green Mile, some of King's best work.

    Updated the list with the last couple of books. Seems we have a good chunk still missing? Unless I overlooked something.
    • Different Seasons
    • Cycle of the Werewolf
    • The Green Mile
    • On Writing
    • Faithful
    • The Bazaar of Bad Dreams
    • End of Watch

    The Outsider thread added to the list. Surprised we're still missing one for The Bazaar of Bad Dreams, that was King's best collection in a long time.
