    How did you discover the Dark Tower?
    Found a copy of The Gunslinger in our local library in the mid 80s and borrowed it thinking it was a western (I was into those then). Even though the book wasn’t what I expected it was a great read; a man on a quest suddenly becoming guardian to a scared boy. Many years were to pass until I found a paperback copy of The Drawing of the Three – it was expensive, but I remembered how good the previous one was that I had read years before. I read this book a countless number of times – wow it sure cannot get better than this? Found the rest of the books a couple of years ago and last year bought The Wastelands for my Kindle (eyes aren’t what they used to be for books). Didn’t start reading it until mid 2019 and couldn’t put it down, I’m halfway through the last one now.

    Who is your favorite character?
    Jake, definitely. He is a bit of an enigma – he is aged 11 (12 by the time he gets to Calla), small for his age (maybe the size of a 9 year old), he had blue eyes (and presumably blond hair as this is a common combination). He is intelligent does well at school, but has none of the life experiences of the other members of the ka-tet (apart from having died twice). He is a boy with a dog (bumbler) and enjoys playing childish games (with Benny Slightman at Calla), but he appears fearless and is always in the thick of the battle. He does not shirk from killing and behaves like a man, but when it’s finished he reverts to a sensitive boy who is not afraid to cry publically when he is sad. The developing bond between him and Roland culminates in their accepting each other as father and son. Jake finally fearlessly lays his life down for his father’s quest; “tell my father I love him” - Maybe he’s the son I never had?

    What is your favorite book? The Wastelands

    How old are you? 61

    Where are you from? Yorkshire, England

    Do you have a nickname? No

    How did you find this site? Internet search

    Drawing of the Three will always be one of the best things I've ever read. It blew me away the first time I read it. It's my favorite book from the series.

    Also, am I reading your post right that you are about to finish your first journey to the tower?

    Also also..Welcome to the site!

    I will try to post here more often. I used to belong to the official SK forum but I had to leave it because there were too many rude people on it.

    Hello. I am new to the site and came here hoping to find other DT fans who may have some issues of the DT comics that I am still lacking! Thanks for letting me join.

    I first started reading SK when I was 15 years old. I read 'Salem's Lot on a bus from California back to my home state of Utah. I was reading at night and I swore that there were vampires outside my bus window! When I finished reading that, I was hooked and haven't been able to quit since.

    I began collecting 1st edition hardbacks of all of his books a few years later when I became an "adult" and had a few dollars that I didn't need for bills. I currently have all of his books (just the trade releases) in 1st HB and a few S/L. My pride and joy is the "coffin edition" of The Stand. I got lucky and found that, the limited editions of Skeleton Crew and The Talisman and the 1st of The Gunslinger and a signed 1st Carrie.

    My addiction has since branched off into the DT comics and have been having a REAL hard time finding the last 15, or so, editions that I need to complete the collection!

    Welcome, Twukker! That's a nice solid collection you have going there. I believe there is a thread someplace related to the comics that you're seeking.
