Staff Reviews


Stephen King's Dark Tower series has been referred to as King's "magnum opus," and for good reason. None of his numerous novels will ever compare to the mastery of this series. We follow Roland, the last gunslinger in a universe parallel to our own, on an epic quest to the enigmatic Dark Tower, which is a sort of energetic magical center point connecting many universes--including our own--and keeping them alive. The Tower is in grave danger, and it seems only Roland can save it. This story spans multiple genres and muses on many lofty philosophical themes. It is a wonderful, golden tale.

Description


Beginning with a short story appearing in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1978, the publication of Stephen King's epic work of fantasy-what he considers to be a single long novel and his magnum opus-has spanned a quarter of a century.

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is King's most visionary feat of storytelling, a magical mix of science fiction, fantasy, and horror that may well be his crowning achievement. In November 2003, the fifth installment, Wolves of the Calla, will be published under the imprint of Donald M. Grant, with distribution and major promotion provided by Scribner. Song of Susannah, Book VI, and The Dark Tower, Book VII, will follow under the same arrangement in 2004. With these last three volumes finally on the horizon, readers-countless King readers who have yet to delve into The Dark Tower and a multitude of new and old fantasy fans-can now look forward to reading the series straight through to its stunning conclusion. Viking's elegant reissue of the first four books ensures that for the first time The Dark Tower will be widely available in hardcover editions for this eager readership.
