The Losers’ Club is back on the path of the Beam — and this time they’re following it to the end.

The last three books in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower saga — Wolves of the Calla, Song of Susannah, and The Dark Tower — all arrived in the space of less than a year in 2003 and 2004, surprising fans who’d gotten used to waiting years in between installments. King’s mad rush to finish the books traces back to his near-fatal 1999 accident; having confronted his mortality, he was determined to not leave his epic unfinished. The result is a fascinating and occasionally frustrating conclusion to a series that gets eye-poppingly meta while folding in characters, creatures, and artifacts from every corner of his oeuvre.

Join Losers Randall Colburn, Ana Marie Cox, Dan Pfleegor, and Dan Caffrey as they unpack the history of the series, the intricacies of its lore, and the number 19 as it manifests in The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla, a “side quest” of sorts that brings Roland his ka-tet closer to the ominous land of Thunderclap as it reintroduces us to a familiar face and teases enemies of the living, undead, and mechanical variety. It’s a lot.
