The town of Candleton was a poisoned and irradiated ruin, but not dead; after all the centuries it still twitched with tenebrous life--trundling beetles the size of turtles, birds that looked like small, misshapen dragonlets, a few stumbling robots that passed in and out of the rotten buildings like stainless steel zombies, their joints squalling, their nuclear eyes flickering. (from the first line)
The acclaimed novels featuring Roland of Gilead, who travels through a strange but eerily familiar world in a quest for the Dark Tower, have enthralled Stephen King's readers for years. Now they are available in new packages and with a new introduction, in anticipation of the long-awaited concluding volumes of the saga.
From the Publisher:
While Roland the Gunslinger and his companions leap between worlds, he relates his experiences with the elusive, powerful emotion of love in a journey into his own past. Reissue.
Annotation:
Roland the Gunslinger continues the quest he began in the first three books of the Dark Tower series: THE GUNSLINGER, THE DRAWING OF THE THREE and THE WASTE LANDS. In this installment, Roland must make a journey into his own past so that he may unlock the mysteries of the present.
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

Kirkus Reviews
"In Roland's quest tale, which King calls 'my Jupiter' among the solar system of his published works, the bleak cosmology of self-assurance versus wrongness is as compelling as ever." 08/01/1997
