If anyone else has finished the book, discussion is welcome here. What did you think? I really can't imagine any fan not liking this one, but I could be wrong, of course. I thought it was totally absorbing and beautifully written.

I only have one small complaint (not even really a complaint, just a tiny blip in my enjoyment)...

cut for spoilers...Collapse )

I JUST got this in my e-mail and thought I would share:

Dear Constant Readers,

At some point, while worrying over the copyedited manuscript of the next book (11/22/63, out November 8th), I started thinking—and dreaming—about Mid-World again. The major story of Roland and his ka-tet was told, but I realized there was at least one hole in the narrative progression: what happened to Roland, Jake, Eddie, Susannah, and Oy between the time they leave the Emerald City (the end of Wizard and Glass) and the time we pick them up again, on the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis (the beginning of Wolves of the Calla)?

There was a storm, I decided. One of sudden and vicious intensity. The kind to which billy-bumblers like Oy are particularly susceptible. Little by little, a story began to take shape. I saw a line of riders, one of them Roland's old mate, Jamie DeCurry, emerging from clouds of alkali dust thrown by a high wind. I saw a severed head on a fencepost. I saw a swamp full of dangers and terrors. I saw just enough to want to see the rest. Long story short, I went back to visit an-tet with my friends for awhile. The result is a novel called The Wind Through the Keyhole. It's finished, and I expect it will be published next year.

It won't tell you much that's new about Roland and his friends, but there's a lot none of us knew about Mid-World, both past and present. The novel is shorter than DT 2-7, but quite a bit longer than the first volume—call this one DT 4.5. It's not going to change anybody's life, but God, I had fun.

Subject:Javier Bardem as Roland
Time:09:27 pm
So I've been told that the roll of Roland is going to be played by Javier Bardem in the upcoming Dark Tower movie. Personally, I've never seen the guy act, but just looking at pictures of him tells me he's all wrong for the part. How are they going to pull off Roland's bright blue eyes? They're going to have to CG those in there, or give him colored contacts or something. Not to mention the hair, all wrong.

Naomie Harris is rumored to be playing Suzannah, which I'm ok with. She seems perfect for the part.

Anyone hear any other casting rumors? Who would you cast in which rolls?

If anyone else has finished reading: discussion welcome here! Did you like the stories? Was it a major turn-off that they were so "harsh," as Steve called them? Do you groan when he publishes story collections, because you'd prefer him to be clacking away at a novel instead?
