    Same here. It also makes me wonder if whomever built the Wolves might have gleaned the ideas for them from the minds of the Breakers.
    Agree with both of you. Especially like the idea that the Breakers may have inadvertantly contributed to the weaponry/technology.

    It makes sense, especially with the mind-connection technology they had access to.

    If sense was perfect it wouldn't have to be made, rather it would be an entity in and of itself with its own constituency.

    For me it's not frightening but funny... scary wolves with painted pink nails? *smiles widely*

    The purple nails are the key to making it a SK like character...

    Pretty fingernail polish! How cute!

    After reading the title of the book, I pictured a man type "werewolf" I guess but once I actually started to read it (even before their descriptions) I pictured them differently.

    i guessed it from when i saw a picture of a wolf in my edition of WOTC.
    when they said zombies i was utterly confused until it was confirmed it was a fake plot. i didn't expect the satalit dishes though.

    Something Susannah said I believe, that I don't have the quote in front of me, maybe someone else could find it, made me think they might have more than just pure robots. Does anyone else remember that quote?

    Very cute. I guess that means you don't know the answer to my question.

    I too, thought that the wolves were "zombis". It was the whole "BRAINS" issue that mase me think that. Also the mention of vampires in Thunderclap led me that direction as well. When I found out that they were robots I was like ?

    I remember when I first read about the wolves before actually reading the book, I wondered if the wolves were that same species from the Talisman. Especially taking into account the connection with Black House.

    Of course when I actually started reading the book and they were described as "human shaped, wearing masks" (or somesuch) I didn't have much of an idea of what they were.

    I think I guessed later on in the story though. It might have been Eddie's conversation with Grand-pere or his informing Roland later.

    Whilst I thought they were pretty cool, it kind of struck me as a little convenient that they were all of the kind with 'think caps' on their head though. Imagine if they'd all been of that other robot type? I forget his name now, but the one who ended up in the Rosa's outside loo.

    I suppose it does make some sense to have a specialized group of robots like that with a central control unit elsewhere though. I'm assuming that's what the think cap was for, like a radio attenae or radar dish.

    This is what I thought also. They're not about doing a lot of independent work like Andy was, but as working as a unit, scaring the folken of the various Calla's shitless, collecting babies and slaughtering the odd person that got up some gumption and making an example of them.

    When I first read the title of WotC I totally thought they were a ravage pack of wolves that were smart enough to out think and smart Roland and Ka-tet then I started reading about their initial description about the human form with a mask and then I thought about werewolves. However, when Roland said they were Zombies to the Calla folken i knew at once that he was messing with them in which at the point I actually put the book down and thought about robots for a moment.
    Opinion in politics, and politics, is an evil which has caused many a fellow to be hung while hes still young and pretty.

    I don't think it's worth creating a new thread for this, and it is related to the subject matter....

    I came across this today. It's an entry in Empire's list of favourite comicbook characters. Just look at the "Did you know?" section.

    Whilst part of me feels a thrill that they include that nugget I don't think it was such a great idea considering some people reading that list might not have read the book yet. They do give a spoiler warning mind you, but even so...

    okay, i just said this in the wolves q&a - i had no clue they were robots until the reveal. then i felt really stupid and was like "damn, i should have guessed! i should have known!"

    as for the blurb on that web site - the least they could do is put that little spoiler alert notice in bold or something. or hide the text behind a spoiler button.

    How was it so obvious for you? I am interested in it because most of the people had no idea about it.
    So may we get some details?

    Roland would have understood.

    I think I had an inkling before the final reveal (I think there was a bit when Eddie tells Roland the old man's story, and he says "Of course!", or "Gods yes!", words to that effect anyway, which) but I wouldn't have guessed that early!

    I knew when what they were when I read the teaser of the prologue online before the book was published.
