    I thought the same Matt and yet I couldn't find it under "V" but when I looked with the King stuff, there it was right next to a copy of Wolves.

    Depends. It's best to look it up in the in-store computer to confirm where it is shelved. It's sometimes in the non-fiction section, sometimes in the fiction section next to King's work.

    Amazon usually has a decent discount on it, too -- under $11.

    Y'know, I would love that.

    I bet King was literally sick when Roland let Jake fall. But I can understand the motivation for the character for sure.

    I have been curious about this book. I'll get it eventually, I guess. Hell, I just now got ahold of Robin's concordance, so I have alot of stuff to read through as I re-read the series for the first time.

    Oh it's totally worth getting. I think the book is far better than the Concordances. It's written incredibly well and is interesting and informative. Three cheers for Bev!

    I think my book and Robin's concordance are complementary. The Concordance isn't meant to be read cover to cover -- it's a quick research tool. Mine is meant more to be read, whereas it's probably not the fastest place to look up the names of all the guardians of the beam.

    Agreed. They're both great to have and work well together.

    It's a quick read Matt - 5 minutes or so! Pretty good and while I thought I knew what the end result was I was not totally correct! :-)

    Bev, I really enjoyed your story! Don't hate me when I say that's the first thing (other than forum posts) that I've read by you.

    I just made through your book Bev, and I got to hand it to you; you really know your stuff.

    One or two questions; you detail a little the battle at Jerico Hill and I don't remember that detail in any of the books. Have you seen other sections, unpublished that could be considered DT material?

    Given the way the DT has spilled over into so many books, even Liseys Story, in my opinion, do you think it likely that he will either add to the tale, or even publish a version from a different level of the Tower?

    I believe King is still in a position to create the longest epic in history. I maintain that the Dark Tower is an unfinished work in if nothing else he has mentioned revising and expanding all of them as he did the first book. I for one would love to pick up again as he pursues the Man in Black, this time with the Horn of Eld.


    Perhaps I just see too many connections. Oy and Wolf seem to me to be the same character for example.

    I'm not sure exactly which section you mean about the battle of Jericho Hill, but I suspect it is the part that is in Wolves of the Calla. I haven't seen any unpublished material. There are some quotes and events from the seventh book taken from the first draft manuscript that were subsequently changed in the final version of DT7, but I was able to correct those in the Cemetery Dance edition.

    My belief: King will never return to the Dark Tower series. He may continue the tie-ins to a small extent, especially if he and Straub get together for the third Talisman novel, but I think that he is done with that particular mythos. I might be surprised a dozen years down the road, but that's my current thinking on the subject.

    Any idea if it looks like you'll do any update to The Road to the Dark Tower once the comics are finished? Or is that still too far away right now?
