View Full Version : 19 ""Spoilers""

So where does the 19 thing come from? It's been in his work for a while, long before his accident, and long before he brought it into the DT series. I just acquired the original Gunslinger story and noticed the 19 thing with Allie and Tull isn't in the original, so it's something he added after. Is it something he siezed on after the accident or has it existed as an important number before that?

Yes, he seized on it after the accident, but it does show up in earlier works quite a lot. It didn't really have a prominent role in his writing until the post accident DT writing though.

Well, he also wrote his first story at "19". Hence, his "being "19" intro's. If I recall correctly.

The 19 incident is not in the original version of The Gunslinger, but in the Revised Version, written AFTER the accident. Yet another retcon.
