    Default Hello!

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    In an opportunity shop, about two years ago. I picked up Wizard and Glass, was somewhat confused but intrigued, so back tracked and I am now hooked!

    Who is your favorite character?
    As weird as it sounds I like Aaron Deepneau, he reminds me of someone close to me.
    Although core characters Roland.

    What is your favorite book?
    Probably Wizard and Glass, although as you all know they are hard to separate.

    How old are you?
    27

    Where are you from?
    Melbourne, Australia

    do you have a nickname?
    I was called Cookie as a young boy, but nothing really now.

    P.S. I'm excited to be here! Outside of some random baseball talk (mystifying to me) it seems like a lot of fun!

    P.P.S. I know nothing about baseball outside of the generalizations of it being boring and incredibly long, as it's not big here in Oz, and I have never had a free 48 hours to watch a game...

    Default Introductions

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?

    I've known about The Dark Tower for a long time now, and have been a huge fan of Stephen King for years. For some reason I put off starting TDT, perhaps the fact that it's a pretty large investment (allocation of funds as well as allocation of time) had something to do with it. About 2 months ago I bit the bullet, bought an iPad and immediately populated my iBooks library with the entire Dark Tower series, save The Wind Through the Keyhole. I read the entire series back to back...took a while, but I couldn't put it down. I have to say, I sympathize with those who read them as they were published...I could hardly wait to turn a page much less wait YEARS to continue the journey.

    Who is your favorite character?

    Roland for sure. It was a rocky start with him, but by The Wastelands, he was definitely my favorite. I would almost go so far to say that I feel towards Roland what Callahan felt for Lupe...ummm, except there's nothing physical....and I don't really want to kiss Roland...and I wouldn't say I'm in love with him...OKAY so maybe it's NOTHING like Callahan's feelings for Lupe! Roland is just awesome. What other character in ANY story could all but kill a guy with a hawk, take out an entire town single-handed, AND hypnotize people with a bullet?!?

    What is your favorite book?

    I don't really have a favorite book, but I have favorite parts of the books collectively. Since I read them back to back, I kind of view it all as one really long book.

    How old are you?

    I am 31.

    Where are you from?

    I am from South Arkansas...and contrary to popular misconception, it is not like The Borderlands...we have electricity, running water, and even television!!!

    Do you have a nickname?

    Not really.

    Hi everyone! I discovered the dark tower in a charity shop a couple of years ago. By the time I got to the second book I was hooked. Can't really say I have a favourite character, none of them are that likable really, but at a push I guess it would have to be Jake. My favourite book is wizard and glass. I'm 37, from Derby in the UK. And don't have any nick names that people say to my face!

    I've met DTRAiN live in person a few years ago. It's a bit hazy now, probably on account of the quantity of beer that was involved. How the hell are you, man?
