The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed . . .

With these words, Stephen King began what his most devout fans consider the most important story of his long and amazingly successful career. Spanning eight novels (4,250 pages), 85 comic books, a multi-part movie series, a TV show, over three decades, and millions of fans, The Dark Tower is comparable to the complete works of Tolkien.

From the Wastelands of Mid-World to the streets of New York City, and many worlds between, King's western-style saga details the immortal battle of Good versus Evil, with the sense of wonder and suspense that only King himself could muster.

For The Dark Tower and Philosophy, the editors have searched the denizens of the Tower and its Worlds and to tell true they have found the very best wordslingers (watch out Cuthbert, for they can spin a tale, do ya kennit?) to come and help us along the paths of the Beam and get down into the questions that have plagued so many readers for years.

What makes Roland tick? Is the Man in Black truly evil? Is Roland? What exactly is the Tower, and why should we defend it? Does Roland have a heart?
