    Default Hile Gunslingers all!

    Long Day's and Pleasant Nights

    I read Christine in %th grade and have been a King fan ever since. THE Greastest American novelist since Hemingway. Others have written good stuff since (Fight Club is also a fav.) since steven hit the shelves but the single greatest story of modern man has got to be the Dark Tower series it is the one i read every year. Tolkein was a good template and the stories of the ring are magnificient, but the story of Roland and his journey stick to my heart and soul. I read The Gunslinger for the first time in 9th grade( a christmas gift) and love every one. My favorite is always the one i happen to be reading including th stories that are not specifically part of the series but link in(The Stand, Insomnia, Eyes of hthe Dragon, etc.) and add to the confusion that is the mastery of King writing. I am 33 now and live in Erie Pa. U.S.A. and will live by the gunsliger for life thankee sai. Thou R.F.(Walter or who ever he happens to be atm) is the most prolific caracter in King's writings on the surface Roland seems to be every where as well, if hidden and unmentioned and will always be my favorite character ever(Spiderman aka Peter Parker is a very close second- he is actually alittle closer to who i am). Thank You Steven King!

    Default Introductions

    How did you discover the Dark Tower? I had never read a Stephen King book, but as a huge Clint Eastwood/spaghetti western fan I was drawn to the 'Gunslinger' title in a bookshop. I read the first line, and was hooked.

    Who is your favorite character? Roland. No contest. No-one else comes close.

    What is your favorite book? Wastelands. There were long moments in that book where I seemed to hold my breath for eons!

    How old are you? 50

    Where are you from? I'm English, currently living in Scotland.

    Do you have a nickname? Keinne is my nickname.

    I don't think I ever formally introduced myself on the site... just kind of jumped into Calvin's Corner. None the less, here we go:

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?

    Don't remember exactly, I know my uncle is a huge King fan, and I read my first ('Salem's Lot) when I was 12. As for when I got onto the Dark Tower - who knows! I've read them so many times its all a blur.

    Who is your favorite charcter?

    I'm a fan of most, but I've always had a soft spot for Roland and Oy. As the series progressed I was happy that Callahan showed up.

    What is your favorite book?

    Its hard to pick one, I always read them back-to-back as if they are a whole. I guess Wizard and Glass if I had to choose.

    How old are you?

    19.

    Where are you from?

    I was born in Etobicoke and lived in Markham (both in the Greater Toronto Area). My family moved to London when I was five or six.

    do you have a nickname?

    Nope.
