    How did you discover The Dark Tower?
    I got the paperback editions for Christmas one year and I only read The Gunslinger and then somebody borrowed the next two from me before I could read them and I never got them back. So I decided I'd help out my used book dealer in Jersey and bought the hardcovers of the complete Dark Tower series (it wasn't cheap but he gave me a great deal because I'm one of his regulars and he knew I was eyeing that series for quite sometime until I had enough money to buy it).

    Favorite Character
    I haven't read the complete series yet, so I can't really pick one yet.

    Favorite Book
    Well I just finished reading Pet Semetary; it almost made me cry because of the way Mr. King describes the grief process in such a morbid but beautiful way.

    How old are you?
    26 (turning 27 in about a month in a half).

    Where are you from?
    Well from Tuesday to Saturday I reside in Adamstown, PA (it's about 10 minutes South of Reading, PA. On Sunday and Monday I go back to Burlington, NJ to visit my parents and friends.

    Nicknames
    Movie guy, J.J., & Johnny. Feel free to use any of them if you want to.

    Welcome to the site. I hope you enjoy the series. I'm kinda jealous when I hear about people reading the series for the fist time.

    Hi Guys great site, I have at last found the door to Mid-World!!
    HOW DID YOU DISCOVER THE DARK TOWER?
    About 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease and was in and out of hospital. In the hospital shop during one of well over 100 admissions (I'm a lot better now, though not quite in remission) I found a copy of the gunslinger and thanked Arthur himself for sending me something to break the monotony!
    WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER?
    I genuinely love them all but Roland is slightly out in front in this particular race. Oy the Billy-Bumbler is a definite second though.
    WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK?
    I haven't read Wind Through The Keyhole yet, and I really liked the Sisters of Eluria short, but my favourite is The Wastelands
    HOW OLD ARE YOU?
    I am 39 Earth Years Old
    WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
    I was born in South London, England but currently reside in a little village in Kent also in England in the United Kingdom.
    DO YOU HAVE A NICKNAME?
    Phaze13 is the name I use artistically for Photography, Tattooing and Drawing, most know me simply as Wezza however.

    Again great site guys

    Thanks jonp and peripheral...my reason behind joining this site is to learn more about the upcoming movie ( series?) and to see if there is a way to prepare for it..I read the dark tower once and can read it again...it was very good...but I have limited available time...also, I am a very very minor collector of SK stuff...

    There are a lot of members around here for the conversation and discussion who aren't collectors. I've been an avid King reader for 20+ years but wouldn't know the first thing about collecting. So, please, don't let the lack of collecting stop you from enjoying this awesome place.

    You know what seems to be pretty cool...there's a lot of young people reading SK and maintaining an interest...I also think that his "genre" is mi-labeled as horror...there is so much more..

    I'd have to agree with you on that one. His stories always end up being more about the characters than anything else. I am always entertained by a King book, but rarely scared by it.

    I feel like an idiot because I don't even see the calendar on my browser.

    I'm sure someone qualified will come in here, see your post, and have a perfectly logical explanation for it.
    Anyone? Anyone?....
