Short Work: "The Gunslinger and the Dark Man”
Author: Stephen King
Type: Fiction

Synopsis: Part five of five. This heroic fantasy is set in a world of ominous landscape and macabre menace that is a dark mirror of our own. A spellbinding tale of good versus evil, it features one of Stephen King's most powerful creations—The Gunslinger, a haunting figure who embodies the qualities of the lone hero through the ages from ancient myth to frontier legend. His pursuit of The Man in Black, his liaison with the sexually ravenous Alice, his friendship with the kid from Earth called Jake, are part of the drama that is both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, an alchemy of storytelling sorcery.
