    First I have to say hi to Ronald. Hi Ron! Missed ya, buddy.

    ok.

    How did you discover the Dark Tower? I had already been into SK's books, and when I was 12 I took the Gunslinger on a plane trip to Italy. I was immediately sucked in to that world. Scrambled to find the other books at the library when i got back. At that point, Wastelands had come out fairly recently. And it was just getting better and better.

    Who is your favorite character? Mr. Eddie Dean, yessir.

    What is your favorite book? Drawing of the Three is special to me.

    How old are you? 27

    Where are you from? CT, USA

    do you have a nickname? ....milk.

    no i survived. it's a long story. filled with tears, emotion. ...long story.

    long and painful. like being raped with a broom handle or a rifle. except the metal of the gun is tears and splintering of the broom handle is loss. i was raped by tears and loss, Ron.

    i do feel a little better now. how are you?

    very vivid metaphors
    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 forgot to answer the questions.




    How did you discover the Dark Tower? I got really drunk one night and someone gave me this tiny piece of paper and told me to place it on my tongue. I saw many amazing things that night. There were pirates doing tax returns, kitty cats doing pedicures and something about a sheep I'd rather not talk about. I began to ramble on and on about how not ALL catfish were agents of the F.B.I. but I could tell the ones who were. I began to chant over and over "I am son of black dinger" untill a friend decided I need to chill out so he gave me a placidyl. (always a good idea to mix drugs eh?) I ran from them all. "and I ran, I ran both night and day...I couldn't get away" - (Flock of seagulls). My flight took me across the desert on a horse with no name... no one followed. Somehow I found myself in the school library where I picked up a copy of The Stand. I was enthralled. Then one of my hallucinations said "If you like that...B-b-baby you ain't seen nothing yet." here is that author's new book The Gunslinger. (this was the early 80s where the book first came out and the blotter was still good.) From there I was hooked...and I couldn't stop reading the series either. LOL



    Who is your favorite charcter?
    Flagg by far!

    What is your favorite book?

    The Stand


    How old are you?

    38

    Where are you from?

    Indiana

    do you have a nickname?

    nope

    I'm about the same, except less like rape, and more actual rape, but not me...so..pretty great.

    Hello All, again. I thought I did this before, lol. Looks like the first thread has been removed. Anyway, glad to be here and glad to see some familiar faces like Wiz, John, Ari, Needful Kings and the rest from the collectors forums over on DT.net (I know I've forgot some, sorry). And a special thanks to RF for inviting me!

    Anyway I thought I would answer the questions.

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?

    Well, I started with King with Pet Semetary, and I was buying every King book when they came out in the 80’s. I bought the Gunslinger when it was released in paperback for the first time.

    Who is your favorite character?

    Obviously Roland, he’s got that Clint Eastwood in him, that I just love.

    What is your favorite book?

    Surprisingly, The Wastelands. I found it really cool when we came across the first city from old, and we saw how it had deteriorated into madness. Also we found some of the old people and we first saw how they respected The Gunslingers of old. I think this book really answered some questions I had at the time and I was very pleased. And I really like the mystery about Blane and the cliffhanger at the end, where you yell shit! No way you can’t stop here!

    How old are you?

    38

    Where are you from?

    US, Ohio

    do you have a nickname?

    Gus, by my old high school friends, it’s from my childhood and derived from my last name when everyone tried to shorten Guthrie.





    i just had to use the rose again, lol

    Hello, everyone!

    I used to be Roland_Delgado over at tdt.net. The real name is Daniel. You don't have to call me by my real name.

    Now for the quiz:

    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    Through my mother. She is one of the biggest King fans I have ever met. She has just about everyone of his books and stories around here somewhere.
    Well, I had heard her and my brother talking about the series for years, and one day I finally decided to just pick up the first book and see what I was missing. Well, needless to say, really, I was missing quite a bit. I breezed through the first book in a couple of nights, and after that, I was hooked. I was luck enough to be able to read all seven books, along with Little Sisters, back-to-back.

    Who is your favorite charcter?
    Roland is my first favourite; Walter - or whatever you want to call him - is my second.

    What is your favorite book?
    It is between The Gunslinger and Wizard & Glass

    How old are you?
    I am twenty.

    Where are you from?
    Florida. Born and raised.

    Do you have a nickname?
    Not that I am aware of. Although, a friend of mine used to call me Captain. She'd put a different name after Captain everytime.
