    Roland would have understood.

    I got my dad hooked by accident a few years ago. I say by accident because what happened was I had actually let my mum borrow The Gunslinger when she and dad went on holiday. I was surprised when he came back and said he enjoyed it - usually my dad's not very fond of scifi or fantasy, and he's especially not fond of horror. He finished the series this year though, and is now a little bit interested in reading more Stephen King, so i'm pretty pleased with that!

    Now, if I could just get back to my original aim and get my mum to read The Gunslinger...


    I am the Master...and you will obey me...

    I just gave my dad the SC Gunslinger a few days before Christmas, and he's already finished Drawing of the Three...yay!

    Default I'm More Awesome Than All Of You Combined

    Why, you might ask? Simple, I convinced someone who had read the first three volumes of The Dark Tower, but had lapsed, to complete the series by reading the final three books...ON NEW YEAR'S! While slightly intoxicated.

    Well, I must concede that's pretty damn awesome, but come on ...when you say "all of you combined" this includes me; and it is an incontrovertible fact that nothing or noone is half as awesome as me.


    Seriously, that's pretty great, man.

    I gave my roommate's kid some SK books for christmas. There was a catch though-he must read The Gunslinger (original) first.

    Touche.

    Yup, this would be the fourth or fifth person I've either convinced to start reading it, or to continue reading it-if he takes me up on my advice. I made a pretty good sales pitch, IMHO.

    Brice, dude, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but Letti is more awesome than you. And when she posts in the melons thread, she's four times more awesome!!

    Oh, and I'm half as awesome as you so your wrong on that one too.

    As awesome as Brice is, don't give him any ideas. I really don't want to see him posting stuff in the melons thread.

    You ain't gotta' worry about that.

    All joking aside I'd say most of y'all on this site are at least twice as awesome as I am.

    and that alone is enough to make you infinitely more awesome. Any awesomeness I do have is merely residual awesomeness that rubbed off from hanging out with you good people here.

    "Convert" vs. revert, Jean. Two completely different and distinct things.

    That's part of what makes everyone so bloody awesome. Yep.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.
