    Wow, I don't remember learning any of that in the books, or the comics.

    Thats because you haven't read The Gunslinger's Guidebook yet... HINT HINT

    Yeah, there is a TON of stuff in there that's not in the books - a lot of good background, fill-in-the-blanks kind of stuff. I'm finding that thing really interesting.

    Hmm, I know I need to get the Guidebook.
    So BACK the F*CK off me!



    Anyway, sometimes I don't know about the expansion of the mythos from sources that ARE NOT Stephen King. I know he has input but seriously, did he care enough about Aileen Ritter to write all of that about her? Doubt it.

    It's a good entry though Daggers.

    Well, you know, quite honestly, I struggled with that. But thanks for the kudos.

    However, King gave his blessing to the comic series, and set them on the path. So IMHO, I would say it's canon at this point.

    There is a LOT of fill-in info, and I was worried about including that, but since Sai King set Furth, et. al. on this path, I figure it's fair game.

    And, a lot of it is seriously interesting. Really, what was Aileen before the comics? Just a passing reference. Now, at least, she has motive and personality.

    You should really read the guidebook, Monte. I think you'd like it.

    I agree we have to accept the good and the bad additions to the cannon, I really do. Aileen still is lame though.
    You're all doing some good work with these entries.

    I know. I flipped to that page and I was all "who got bored enough to write about this chick?"

    I would say that there is a very good chance she will be a character in the comics to come, ergo the reason that writing about her is relevant.

    Good job, Daghain.

    Thanks!

    I think it might be kind of interesting to see what, if anything, they do with her character.
