    The different balls of the Wizard's Rainbow correspond to the thirteen colors of the window. And Black 13 is the most powerful of those, controlling the others, like the lord of the rings. Also, there's a parallel to the Dark Tower itself, sitting at the center of the twelve beams, with their twelve guardians. So I think the black innermost window is objectively innermost, rather than just appearing that way from a particular viewpoint. Though I also doubt the others are concentric; they'd probably just somehow ring around that one, basically side by side. How it works, exactly, I don't know, but that is the symbolism, I believe.

    "At the top was an oriel window of many colors—each, Roland knew, corresponding to one of the Wizard’s glasses. The inmost circle but one was the pink of the ball that had been left for awhile in the keeping of a certain witch-woman named Rhea; the center was the dead ebony of Black Thirteen."

    "he could see the oriel window at the top, its many colors blazing in the spring sunshine, the black center seeming to peer back down the binoculars at him like the very Eye of Todash."

    The tower is round, so the notion of a central window can only mean that they are somehow concentric. Concentric rings, perhaps. But how can that fit on the face of a circular Tower unless it points in only one direction. That's always been my problem. That suggests that the tower has a preferential orientation. Maybe it does -- in the direction of the door. That's one reason why I didn't get too hung up on an absolutely literal drawing of the tower for the cover.

    Well it looks like it's once in a blue moon day because I was wrong...
    Here is a picture of an oriel window -

    So the corresponding window to Black Thirteen would be the center of the oriel window like above. Of course it doesn't sound like it's identical to the above window with circular inside windows instead of square.
    "It's his eyes, Roland thought. They were wide and terrible, the eyes of a dragon in human form" - Roland seeing the Crimson King for the first time.

    "When the King comes and the Tower falls, sai, all such pretty things as yours will be broken. Then there will be darkness and nothing but the howl of Discordia and the cries of the can toi" - From Song of Susannah

    The cover art was done by a Spanish artist named Nekro. He posted his concept art on Facebook:

    Good interview. I'm glad it's all new text.

    I checked out your review webpage too. I was pleasantly surprised to see Last Kind Words by Tom Piccirilli. That one was one of my favourite reads this year.

    Tom's a good buddy of mine -- he's been going through a really tough time lately because of medical problems.

    Nice, looking forward to April.

I don't expect to read this edition deluxe myself, although you needn't tell that to anybody else. Frankly, you know, I don't suppose that anybody ever reads an edition deluxe.
