    Great idea Sarah! (sorry, I ain't used to calling you maerlyn)

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?

    When The Gunslinger first came out I could never find a copy. Then when TDotT came out I read it and was finally able to go back and read the Gunslinger. I've been hooked ever since.

    Who is your favorite charcter?

    I absolutely can't pick one. I love them all almost as if they were real people.

    What is your favorite book?
    The Gunslinger followed closely by Wizard And Glass

    How old are you?

    35

    Where are you from?

    I'm originally from Boston, Mass. I spent about half my life in Virginia, hitchhiked all over the country and have been in NC for about 13 or 14 years.

    do you have a nickname?

    IRL: no online: many

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    I was a King fan and read Pet Semetery. On the page listing King's work, I saw a mention of The Gunslinger. Being unfamiliar with the title I sought it out. I found a slightly worn true 1st edition sans dustjacket and paid the princely (at that time) sum of $20 for the book. It actually was a strange read for me the first time, but when I read DTII, I was hooked.

    Who is your favorite character?
    Roland is the easy choice but perhaps I'll add Cort

    What is your favorite book?
    DTII for the series. The Stand for all of King's works.

    How old are you?
    46-ouch!

    Where are you from?
    I reside in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    do you have a nickname?
    My wife would say "asshole"


    There are those who have met him
    And those who haven't
    Hidden under a woman's name
    You'll find the lucky few
    Mingling with the envious

    This station is the fourth, and surely is the best
    To find the fifth bool, seek the writer of Roland's quest

    This is a wonderful idea

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    My older brother bought the first issue when it hit the books stores for his wife, she was not really into the story and I asked if I could borrow it for a bit. I loved it and have been a huge fan ever since. Gotta be over 20 years now.

    Who is your favorite charcter?
    Jake has always been my favorite, he reminds me of my son. Hard as nails, no bullshit

    Spoiler:
    I cried when he died


    What is your favorite book?
    It used to be Drawing of the Three, now that the series is over, its Wizard and Glass

    How old are you?
    Just turned 38

    Where are you from?
    I was born in Kansas, moved immediatly to Texas. In 1977, we moved to Colorado so I consider myself a native.

    do you have a nickname?
    Just Matty and that one is new with the net.

    My dad is a huge SK fan. He told me I should read the DT series. The summer of 2004 loomed empty, with me single and having nothing to do. I picked up the Gunslinger at the library as my summer reading project. Obviously I was hooked.

    Who is your favorite charcter?
    I'm partial to Roland, but I also have a soft spot in my heart for Detta. She's so sassy!

    What is your favorite book?
    Probably The Drawing of the Three

    How old are you?
    24

    Where are you from?
    Denver, Colorado. And I live here still.

    do you have a nickname?
    online the only one I'm known by is Handfuls. Sadly, my real life nicknames are to embarrasing to reveal.
    A true firewasp ninja would never wear such a ridiculous sweater.

    There's logic in nonsense.

    Give me all the bacon and eggs you have.

    The store where I worked got in a bunch of paperbacks, including The Gunslinger and The Drawing of Three, and sold them for 25 cents each. Being the SK fan that I am, I bought those two to read while I was out on maternity leave.

    Who is your favorite charcter?
    Roland, duh.

    What is your favorite book?
    Probably The Drawing of Three

    How old are you?
    35

    Alabama

    A few, but none that you need to concern yourself with.

    Great idea...

    How did you discover The Dark Tower?
    I started reading King in around 1987, I kept seeing The Gunslinger advertised at the back of various paperbacks....in 1988 I picked it up and read it. It was slow at first, as a lot of people are when they first pick up The Gunslinger, but I got through it. I got The Drawing of the Three shortly after and read it and was blown away. I quickly re-read The Gunslinger and have been hooked since.

    Who is your favorite charcter?
    Thats a hard one...it has certainly changed over the years but the version of Flagg known as Richard Fannin has always had a special place in my heart. I can still remember reading The Wastelands when he is introduced. As the character was described he kept sounding more and more familiar (I had read The Stand a few years before) and when I finally made the connection I was floored. To this day, it is one of the best parts of the entire series for me.

    What is your favorite book?
    I would say The Wastelands.

    How old are you?
    Just a bit younger than tamez, I will turn 33 a little later this year.

    Where are you from?
    St. Louis, MO.

    Do you have a nickname?
    Not really...online I have always gone by pol.

    Some of you guys I have gotten to know over the years and I certainly look forward to getting to know a lot more of you.

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    I was living in Campbell, CA and dating a woman in Seattle, WA. I needed something for the 775 mile drive north one weekend, so I stopped at the library for audiobooks. I already liked King, and I saw The Gunslinger and Drawing of the Three. I hadn't heard of them, so I checked out both. The first was read by King himself. Listened to them on the way up and on the way back.

    Who is your favorite character?
    Cuthbert.

    What is your favorite Dark Tower book?
    Wizard and Glass

    How old are you?
    just turned 42

    Where are you from?
    Northern California

    do you have a nickname?
    Not particularly. And my screenname everywhere is the same as this one.

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?

    I only started reading King about 5 years ago. After Needful Things, I tried The Talisman, so naturally I read Black House after that. The references to the Dark Tower in there really intrigued me, so I decided to try the series.

    Who is your favorite charcter?

    Ooh, that's a tough choice. I'd have to say I'm the most fond of Eddie.

    What is your favorite book?

    Drawing of the Three

    How old are you?

    19, just a wee young lad

    Where are you from?

    Originally an Iowan, but now I'm up in MN, currently in Moorhead right next to Fargo, ND.

    do you have a nickname?

    There are very many different things that people call me.

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    I was nineteen years old. A copy of The Wastelands came into my hands, which I devoured, and then a copy of The Gunlslinger right afterward. It was four years later that I was able to find copies of the other books, and I've been a DT fanatic ever since.

    Who is your favorite character?
    Probably Jake.

    What is your favorite book?
    A toss up between The Wastelands and Wizard & Glass.

    How old are you?
    27

    Where are you from?
    Born in SLC, Utah; raised in the South; now living in Denver, CO

    Do you have a nickname?
    Many over the years. Online I have often been known as KrimsonReaper.

    I have a friend who is a King fan and knew that I had enjoyed all the SK books I had read in the past. He asked me if I'd tried the Dark Tower series yet. I told him I hadn't, he gaped at me, then proceeded to order me to read them. I picked up DT1 and gave it a go. I didn't get very far the first time. Last year I gave it another shot and loved it.

    Who is your favorite character?
    This is such a harsh question. So harsh. However, you can't force me to pick just one, so Roland and Jake for me, thanks.

    What is your favorite book?
    Drawing of the Three and Wizard and Glass.

    How old are you?
    25.

    Where are you from?
    Minneapolis, Minnesota

    Do you have a nickname?
    Well, my name's Laura, as some of you know. I'll answer to juuust about anything, though.

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?

    I was given the Gunslinger as a present when i was about 13 and read it but didnt really get into it a huge amount, and it wasn't til about 10 years after that when I saw the first 4 books available and grabbed TDoT which definitely sucked me right in so I went back and re-read the Gunslinger and then went from there. I've always thought the first book is kind of like a little test after that

    Who is your favorite character?

    Jake, its always good to see kids kicking ass.

    What is your favorite book?


    The Wastelands
