    Hey...King had me running through all kinds of orders of books since the early 80's. I waited 22 0r 23 years for a Dt book. I even read the original Gunslinger. I tell you; just read DT 1-7 in order and you will be ok. If you read ANY King book in between you will be ok. If you read the Black House before The Talisman you will be ok and vice versa. If you read Desperation before you read The Regulators you are ok. The wind thoh the keyhole before any of the others...you are ok.

    I was concerned that it would give away things in later books, but it didn't. I read it between Wizard and Wolves, and I think it does a good job serving as a bridge between those books. I would read it where King set it chronologically instead of treating it like an outlier.

    I actually read it long after I had finished all the main seven books. It was a great thing to have another DT book to be able to read! I hope he writes more soon. You can read it directly after WAG without any worry of spoilers.

    I read WttK after W&G and before WotC. The only downside of that approach is that each those three stories include substantial back stories so you don't make a lot of progress in the overall journey of our ka-tet to the DT.

    BTW, just finished WoTC and thought it was the best of the series so far.

    I read it after volume VII. It doesn't really matter if tou read it before or after the other books. The story (and the story within the story) that is told is not relevant for the main argument of the series.
