    Default The Wind Through the Keyhole-Collecting Discussion

    The working title of the latest Dark Tower book is "The Wind Through the Keyhole". It is set between W & G and Wolves and does not deal directly with the main characters.

    SKMB Mod:
    Stephen has given me permission to pass along that he has an idea for a new Dark Tower book, the working title of which will be THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE. He has not yet started this book and anticipates that it will be a minimum of eight months before he is able to begin writing it.

    So what do you think? A Dark Tower novel without the Ka Tet?

    I'm conflicted. I liked the way the series was wrapped up, and to tamper with that seems wrong.

    BUT... more dark tower is always a good thing.

    So, hmmmm.....

    If you treat this as a standalone DT novel outside the main seven, which it appears to be, then there shouldn't be a problem. I can't wait. I'm guessing a 2011 release date?

    I agree. In all probability it will be something akin to LSOE, only longer (hopefully, oh I don't know, 1000+ pages? ). Not meant to change our perception of the DT saga, but rather to give it some additional substance. I do hope King will not turn out too Tolkienesque, however, I wouldn't want to be bothered with all kinds of unfinished tales, family trees, linguistic essays etcetera in the years to come (is this a sacrilegious thing to say? )

    Not even LSOE, because that has Roland. This would deal with secondary characters, or perhaps all-new characters, but set in the DT universe.

    My fear with that is that if King opens the door to other stories set in the universe, after his death we will see a plethora of "Dark Tower Tales" that will sully the series - much like the endless books in Ludlum's Bourne series and others.

    I think if it were to stay as is it would remain "sacred" so to speak.

    Maybe I'm just worrying too much. More DT does tickle my fancy!

    I'm so looking foward to a 1000+ page novel with Gasher as the main character.

    I know it might not "star" any of the usual characters, but Michael Whelan just did about 25 chartacter paintings for the Discordia project. They are awesome! He did ALL the major players in the DT series, so I wonder if Michael might be asked to illustrate the new book. One can hope!

    I agree with you Eric, hence my Tolkien remark. I'm not actually worried, but after this upcoming DT novel King should leave the DT universe alone. Not because there's nothing more to tell, but because sometimes there's no need to.

    Whatever comes of this, I will LOVE it. If I could be transported, the Dark Tower world is where I would hope to end up. Your points about "damaging" the series are valid to be sure, but I am always hungry for more info, BUT only if it is from King's imagination.

    Also I look forward to a DMG S/L edition. Hopefully the same size/feel to complement the Grant LSOE editions and not something completely different.

    It shouldn't surprise anyone that Sai King will be doing this. After living in the DT world through his words for so many months, I didn't want it to end and why should he. This is great news to me!

    This is GREAT news!! i recently finished reading the series and i cant get over, its very hard to know that there is no more dark tower stories. And now there is a hope!!! Even if it doesnt include the old characters (which is better), it will be set inside DT world (my favorite world) and i will LOVE it, since it will be written by sai King!!!

    What does everyone think of the title? I know it doesn't tell us much, if anything - but keyholes means doors, and that's cool right there Plus I think it's just a very cool and unusual title.

    I am very much open to a new story on the subject of the Tower, any more insight we can gain from King in that arena is really cool.

    I just opened Under the Dome and I always read other writers but starting a King book is like putting on an old comfortable sweater.

    I cannot think of a more perfect way to say it.


    *edit*


    Also, in a more direst response to the thread:

    I welcome any addition to the novels of the DT saga...so long as Robin F'n Furth doesn't touch it with a ten-foot pole.

    This book could go any where or when? Yes as you say that is will take place between W&G, and WotC, but I hope that it goes more in to Tet Corp. But I guess that will be dealt with in Discordia.

    I wouldn't be surprised if TWTTK touched upon the stuff in the comic and/or Discordia.
