    Welcome GTG! I think the safest bet is to simply start from the beginning. Hereís a list of Kingís works in order of publication. Thatís how Iím making my way through it all because I donít want to miss out on any connections between his multitude of stories. Apparently there are a lot of connections, too.

    Howdy from Texas. I've been reading King since I was in Junior High, and started collecting first editions when I realized most of the King books I had were already first editions.

    Hello. I've just started reading The Gunslinger. He's telling Brown about Tull.. yup right at the start.
    I was friends with Chtorrwar19 IRL and that's how I found this place about 10 or 11 months ago now. I have only just now raised the courage to pick up a Steven King book, I'm very affected by accounts of violence or sadness. I tend to kind of live what I read and watch.
    But it is because of Chtorrwar19 and her sense of wonder in the fantastic-ness of the worlds and characters in Steven King's stories and her obvious high estimation of his writing that it has been playing in my mind for quite some time now and I've finally gathered the courage to start. I could have listened to her talking about the stories indefinitely, I was just so captivated. And so, I have bought the book, I've turned to the start and I have read "The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed."
    I'm a little apprehensive about it... I generally really, really feel like I want people to be OK as I go through the story.. but it is Steven King, so.. yeah.
    I only really know of four characters so far; The Gunslinger, the Sorcerer (man in black), Bown and Zoltan, the bird. So it's a little early for me to be picking favourites.
    So, obvioulsy, I'm also living in Wellington, New Zealand. I'm 39, but I've matured in an odd sort of way and have been pretty naive about certain, unpleasant realities of life. It's actually due to my recent, rude awakening to that fact that I feel like I actually should look into darker concepts and now may be the time for me to face Steven King.
    I asked Chtorrwar19 what her favorite Steven King book is, thinking I might take a look, and she said IT... so, I decided not to start there.
    I don't have a nickname, but it would be so great if somebody were to bestow one upon me one day.
    As a side, I was amazed by the number of Steven King comics, I had no idea that there were any and there are a lot.
    I'm looking forward (with apprehension) to the immersion.

    Welcome Recouper. Don't worry, in a month you will fit right in. Just go at your own pace and you will be fine. And don't be apprehensive. Be excited that you took the first step.

    Hello there!!! Just want to say i'm a big fan of the Dark Tower

    How did you discover the Dark Tower? I read the Gunslinger back when i was a teenager, since then discovered the Jae Lee comics and heard the audiobooks.

    Who is your favorite character? My favorite character is Roland of course.

    What is your favorite book? The Dark Tower> is my favorite book. The part when Roland gets his guns is fixed in my memory.

    How old are you? I think i'm 48 years old.

    Where are you from? I was born in Honduras!!!!

    do you have a nickname? not any good ones .

    how did you find this site? I found this site because I'm trying to find out more about an artwork that comes in The Little Sisters of Eluria novella.

    Hey!!1
    The image when i saw it was on a hardcover of Legends: Masters of Modern Fantasy. An anthology where Stephen King came out with The Little Sisters of Eluria of the Dark Tower universe.
    I believe the images were commissioned by SK.
    I was just very intrigued by the image, I thought it was pretty cool.

    You're correct. The book credits Erik Wilson.

    Hi All,
    Iíve been hanging around the forum for a while (mainly other Uthers thread)
    I thought I should actually read a Stephen King books before joining as you guys are so persuasive.
    Well letís say I picked up Salemís Lot (always partial to a good vampire story - no not twilight YES I am legend)
    Anyway after going through Salemís I think Iíve pretty much now got the bug.
    After Salemís I read on writing and just finished The Shining.
    Now Iím going to have to find all the first editions. Question is UK or US.
    Probably UK as they are more than likely easier to come by but saying that finding them in fine condition will be the challenge. Or maybe both and see where I am later down the road
    Hereís to happy hunting.
