About the Author

At the age of 19 Stephen decided he would like to write an epic similar to Tolkien. The 'spaghetti Westerns' of that time and a poem written by Robert Browning, 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came', became the inspiration for his magnum opus. The series written and published separately over a period of 22 years consists of seven books and the short story, 'The Little Sisters of Eluria' published in his short story collection, EVERYTHING'S EVENTUAL.

Reviews

A gem of a novel, enchanting and enchanted . . . King is utterly at home in Mid-World, and the cadences and rhythms of the vernacular he has created provide a language fitting for the stories and legends he recounts. - Guardian[A] phantasmagorical folk tale . . . King's ability to entertain and unsettle cannot be denied. The skill with which he delivers a shock or sense of gothic terror is simply unmatched - Independent on SundayPerfectly balanced: another excellent example of King's sheer skill as a storyteller. - Daily ExpressLike John Steinbeck, he's an unfussy writer whose voice is rooted equally in the rhythms of everyday speech and the mythic made manifest in everyday life. Indeed, reading King, you often sense the presence of the dustbowl America of The Grapes of Wrath . . . a King novel has a sparse elegance that most novelists never achieve in a whole career. Put it down to the insistent, economical and wholly distinctive authorial voice. - SFX MagazineA frantic-paced puzzle-box adventure that encompasses gunslinger Roland Deschain's early years, werewolves and powerful storytelling. - ShortlistKing is one of the great popular artists of our time. - IndependentClassic King, fine characters, compellingly written in a gripping, well-honed plot - Daily Express on WOLVES OF THE CALLASuperbly energetic, it's King at his best. - Mail on Sunday on WIZARD AND GLASS
