    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    My dad had the first three when I was young, and I tried to read them because I liked the covers, but I was just too young for it. I was probably 9 years old. I read The Gunslinger a few years back and loved it, so I moved on to The Drawing of the Three, and absoloutely hated the lobstrosities scenes, and put the book down. Then, I met Erin at a party, and being the big nerds taht we are, we started talking about books, and she convinced me to give it another shot. I pushed past the lobstrosities, and loved all of the rest of the books.

    Who is your favorite character?
    Eddie, Destiny's Fool. I have a tattoo on my right calf of the Ka symbol with Ka-Mai written under it.

    What is your favorite book? Wolves of the Calla

    How old are you? 28

    Where are you from? Richmond, Ky

    do you have a nickname? No. Nothing that anyone calls me to my face anyway. haha.
    There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long.. people. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It's people that kill every revolution.

    I think that is a great idea. We'll make it a priority to go through and take any threads that would be productive over onto the site before we archive this forum. It'll give us a good start, if nothing else.

    a friend found out i was into stephen king and was going on and on about the gunslinger, she wouldn't let up and kept trying to force me into taking it home with me so i eventually gave in and read it.

    Who is your favorite charcter?
    today it's jake, but if you ask me tomorrow it could be someone else and if you asked me while i wasn't in the middle of listening to the series i'd say i can't pick just one.

    What is your favorite book?
    it's hard to choose. maybe the drawing of the three.

    How old are you?
    28

    Where are you from?
    burkburnett, tx

    Do you have a nickname?
    ruki is my nickname, lots of people online know me as zombie.

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    I read my first King book (Cujo) when I was in 5th grade. I was immediately hooked, so then I picked up The Stand and became a lifelong fan. I read all King's books, except the Dark Tower. I was hesitant to begin because someone (obviously a crazy person) told me they were horrible and a waste of time. One night, however, I was bored and picked up The Gunslinger. A few pages in and there was no way I could ever put it down.

    Who is your favorite character?
    Eddie. I love me some Eddie. And Oy, of course.

    What is your favorite book?
    Wizard and Glass, by far. Then probably The Drawing of the Three.

    How old are you?
    23

    Where are you from?
    Richmond, KY

    Do you have a nickname?
    When I lived in N.C, my friends used to call me ELK (my initials), but other than that, I haven't had a nickname in years. Online I just usually go by Erin. I'm boring.
    I am Daenerys Stormborn and I will take what is mine. With fire and blood.

    Hi everyone. A lot of you may know me from TDT.net (mainly in the Collector's Forums there). I'm a long-time King reader and collector. I began to read King when Carrie first came out in paperback. I started collecting the hardcovers with Firestarter. I have all King's works that have been published and some that have not been officially published. I collect, of course. I am trying to specialize in the King proofs, both US and UK. I have almost 100 now. I also have most of the signed limited editions. Yes, I am a King fanatic!

    Welcome John. Good to see you here.
    As far as SK proofs go, I'd bet John has one of the top 5 collections in the world.

    I've been thinking about it and I don't think I rate in the top 5. Maybe the top 25, though. I know a number of people who have equivalent or better collections of proofs than I, and I'm sure there are others out there that don't post on any of the boards.

    Just trying to clear things up.

    John,
    until proven otherwise, I stand by my statement.
    You are humble, and that is a great attribute-however, you have a collection of proofs that is the envy of many, and the possession of few.

    Blasphemy!!!

    (Actually, I have reading copies of most of King's books, and those get very well worn. I've actually gone through two paperback copies of the Uncut Stand. I now have an inexpensive hardcover of that one for a reading copy!)

    Finally, someone who does what I do. Aaron is slowly converting me to a collector mentality, but I still buy and use books solely for my reading pleasure.

    There's logic in nonsense.

    No, I think you would really call it blashemy that I actually read my limiteds (although I do so extremely carefully).
