The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1)
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.
Book IIn The Gunslinger (originally published in 1982), King introduces his most enigmatic hero, Roland Deschain of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting, solitary figure at first, on a mysterious quest through a desolate world that eerily mirrors our own. Pursuing the man in black, an evil being who can bring the dead back to life, Roland is a good man who seems to leave nothing but death in his wake.
This new edition of The Gunslinger has been revised and expanded throughout by King, with new story material, in addition to a new introduction and foreword. It also includes four full-color illustrations in the hardcover and trade paperback formats.
The Drawing of the Three (The Dark Tower #2)
The second volume in Stephen King’s acclaimed, epic Dark Tower series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger,
Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western
Sea—each leading to New York City but at three different moments in
time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to
his quest for the Dark Tower. In 1987, he finds Eddie Dean, The
Prisoner, a heroin addict. In 1964, he meets Odetta Holmes, the Lady of
Shadows, a young African-American heiress who lost her lower legs in a
subway accident and gained a second personality that rages within her.
And in 1977, he encounters Jack mort, Death, a pusher responsible for
cruelties beyond imagining. Has Roland found new companions to form the
"Ka-tet" of his quest? Or has he unleashed something else entirely?
The Waste Lands (The Dark Tower #3)
The Third Volume in the Epic Dark Tower Series…
Wizard and Glass (The Dark Tower #4)
Fourth in the Epic Dark Tower Series…
Wolves of the Calla (The Dark Tower #5)
Roland Deschain and his
"ka-tet" are bearing southeast through the forests of Mid-World, the
almost timeless landscape that seems to stretch from the wreckage of
civility that defined Roland's youth to the crimson chaos that seems the
future's only promise. Readers of Stephen King's epic series know
Roland well, or as well as this enigmatic hero can be known. They also
know the companions who have been drawn to his quest for the Dark Tower:
Eddie Dean and his wife, Susannah; Jake Chambers, the boy who has come
twice through the doorway of death into Roland's world; and Oy, the
Billy-Bumbler.In this long-awaited fifth novel in the saga, their path
takes them to the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis, a tranquil valley
community of farmers and ranchers on Mid-World's borderlands. Beyond the
town, the rocky ground rises toward the hulking darkness of
Thunderclap, the source of a terrible affliction that is slowly stealing
the community's soul. One of the town's residents is Pere Callahan, a
ruined priest who, like Susannah, Eddie, and Jake, passed through one of
the portals that lead both into and out of Roland's world.
Song of Susannah (The Dark Tower #6)
The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is at once a book of revelation, a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower, and a fast-paced story of double-barreled suspense.
To give birth to her "chap," demon-mother Mia has usurped the body of Susannah Dean and used the power of Black Thirteen to transport to New York City in the summer of 1999. The city is strange to Susannah...and terrifying to the "daughter of none," who shares her body and mind.
Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation. Enlisting the aid of Manni senders, the remaining katet climbs to the Doorway Cave...and discovers that magic has its own mind. It falls to the boy, the billy-bumbler, and the fallen priest to find Susannah-Mia, who, in a struggle to cope with each other and with an alien environment "go todash" to Castle Discordia on the border of End-World. In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term.
Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn't. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying.
These are the simple vectors of a story rich in complexity and conflict. Its dual climaxes, one at the entrance to a deadly dining establishment and the other appended to the pages of a writer's journal, will leave readers gasping for the saga's final volume (which, Dear Reader, follows soon, say thank ya).
The Dark Tower (The Dark Tower #7)
British Fantasy Award for Best Novel (2005)
Roland's ka-tet remains intact, though scattered over wheres and whens. Susannah-Mia has been carried from the Dixie Pig (in the summer of 1999) to a birthing room—really a chamber of horrors—in Thunderclap's Fedic; Jake and Father Callahan, with Oy between them, have entered the restaurant on Lex and Sixty-first with weapons drawn, little knowing how numerous and noxious are their foes. Roland and Eddie are with John Cullum in Maine, in 1977, looking for the site on Turtleback Lane where "walk-ins" have been often seen. They want desperately to get back to the others, to Susannah especially, and yet they have come to realize that the world they need to escape is the only one that matters.
Thus the book opens, like a door to the uttermost reaches of Stephen King's imagination. You've come this far. Come a little farther. Come all the way. The sound you hear may be the slamming of the door behind you. Welcome to The Dark Tower.

The Wind Through the Keyhole (The Dark Tower #4.5)
Goodreads Choice Award for Best Fantasy (2012)
In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King returns to the rich landscape of Mid-World, the spectacular territory of the Dark Tower fantasy saga that stands as his most beguiling achievement. Roland Deschain and his "ka-tet"--Jake, Susannah, Eddie, and Oy, the billy-bumbler--encounter a ferocious storm just after crossing the River Whye on their way to the Outer Baronies. As they shelter from the howling gale, Roland tells his friends not just one strange story but two . . . and in so doing, casts new light on his own troubled past.
In his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt-ridden year following his mother's death, Roland is sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man" preying upon the population around Debaria. Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, the brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast's most recent slaughter. Only a teenager himself, Roland calms the boy and prepares him for the following day's trials by reciting a story from the "Magic Tales of the Eld" that his mother often read to him at bedtime. "A person's never too old for stories," Roland says to Bill. "Man and boy, girl and woman, never too old. We live for them." And indeed, the tale that Roland unfolds, the legend of Tim Stoutheart, is a timeless treasure for all ages, a story that lives for us.
King began the Dark Tower series in 1974; it gained momentum in the 1980s; and he brought it to a thrilling conclusion when the last three novels were published in 2003 and 2004. The Wind Through the Keyhole is sure to fascinate avid fans of the Dark Tower epic. But this novel also stands on its own for all readers, an enchanting and haunting journey to Roland's world and testimony to the power of Stephen King's storytelling magic.
