For the first time in a premium mass-market edition comes the #1 "New York Times" bestselling, penultimate novel in Stephen King's epic fantasy--the sixth installment of the seven-volume series that unravels the mystery that has defined Roland's life. Grant/Scribner.
From the Publisher:
SONG OF SUSANNAH | THE DARK TOWER VI | | Susannah Dean is possessed, her body a living vessel for the demon-mother Mia. Something is growing inside Susannah's belly, something terrible, and soon she will give birth to Mia's "chap." But three unlikely allies are following them from New York City to the border of End World, hoping to prevent the unthinkable. Meanwhile, Eddie and Roland have tumbled into the state of Maine -- where the author of a novel called 'Salem's Lot is about to meet his destiny....While Jake, Father Callahan, and Oy struggle to free Susannah Dean, whose body is possessed by a demon-mother named Mia, Roland and Eddie find themselves swept by magic to East Stoneham, Maine, in the summer of 1977.
Annotation:
This is the sixth volume of the seven-book DARK TOWER series, a mix of horror, SF, and dark fantasy that ties together several of Stephen King's novels, including THE STAND and SALEM'S LOT. Father Callahan, Jake, and Oy are searching for Susannah Dean, who is essential to their quest to find and preserve the Dark Tower. Susannah is trapped in 1999 New York, possessed by the demon-mother Mia, who is using Susannah's body to bring forth her child. The baby is also the gunslinger Roland's child--and Roland's future nemesis. Meanwhile, Eddie Dean and Roland travel to 1977 Maine, where they encounter a famous horror-book writer...
Author Bio
Stephen King
Born in 1947, Stephen King has become a household name all over the world. His mother raised him and his brother after their father deserted the family in 1950. In high school, King began to write short stories, his first published work appearing in 1968. He attended the University of Maine, graduating with a B.S. in 1970. Up until his first novel appeared, King had worked in an industrial laundry, as a janitor, as well as an English teacher. CARRIE, his debut, was met by a largely indifferent public in 1974. It wasn't until two years later, after King's second novel 'SALEM'S LOT and the filmed version of CARRIE, that King became a major player in the horror field. THE SHINING, his 1977 haunted hotel novel, began a litany of bestsellers, including THE STAND, THE DEAD ZONE, PET SEMETARY, DOLORES CLAIBORNE, and many others. King's work is regarded as instrumental in bringing about a resurgence of interest in horror fiction in the 1970s and '80s. An extremely high percentage of King's voluminous literary output has been filmed, with varying degrees of success, but all serving to carry the name of Stephen King far and wide. He has written nonfiction, given lectures, acted in films, and continues to produce huge novels nearly every year, all of which become instant bestsellers. As an bizarre sidenote, during the summer of 1999 while walking along a back road in Maine, King was struck and seriously injured by a minivan whose driver apparently lost control of the vehicle while being distracted by his dog--thus creating exactly the kind of news item that might have inspired several of King's own novels.

Praise

Locus
"Self-deprecating, scatological, at times wickedly funny, as familiar with Godzilla movies and the guy behind the Wizard of Oz as he is with the sagas of gods, King turns a potential recipe for literary meltdown into what just might be a masterpiece." - Faren Miller June 2004
