The Dark Tower Companion

Rating
An all-new, comprehensive guide to one of the most brilliantly constructed worlds in all of fiction Stephen King's bestselling multivolume Dark Tower series is the author's most inspired and imaginative creation. The story of Roland Deschain of Gilead, the last gunslinger, and his life-long quest across infinite parallel worlds to reach the Tower and save humanity is one that has consumed King throughout his career as characters and concepts crossed back and forth between the series and the rest of his fictional universe. The mythos continues to be chronicled and expanded in graphic novels overseen by King, interactive adventures on his Web site, a proposed film adaptation, and a new Dark Tower novel. The Dark Tower Companion is the ultimate compendium to King's evolving magnum opus, presenting the mythology, history, and geography of this epic fantasy, which has captivated generations of readers. Using interviews with Stephen King, Ron Howard, Dark Tower expert Robin Furth, and others, Bev Vincent reveals the Dark Tower's influential literary origins; examines its connections to King's other novels; explores the expanded universe; catalogs the major characters, locations, and concepts; and includes a travel guide to the story's real-world locations, giving fans who have followed Roland's journey - and those who are discovering it for the first time - a fascinating overview of the series and an inside look at the creative process of one of the world's most popular authors. Praise for The Road to the Dark Tower 'Wonderful . . . opens doors to Roland's world that not even I knew existed. If you like the Dark Towers books, you'll like this one. Enthusiastically recommended.' Stephen King 'Bev Vincent is a true Kind Insider . . . His book is essential to every reader of Stephen King's magnificent work.' Peter Straub
