Apparently, earlier this month, Sai King revealed (en.wikipedia.org) that he's not finished with The Dark Tower: in about eight months, he's going to start writing "The Wind Through the Keyhole." The news also appears on King's official site (stephenking.com).
I started and finished the series over about five months earlier this year. Everything is still kinda fresh in my mind. I don't know how to feel about this yet. The wiki article says (via word of mouth seemingly) that the new book would be set between "Wizard and Glass" and "Wolves of the Calla." That seems...strange.
Speaking of Stephen King, has anyone read "Under the Dome" yet? I'm about 150 pages away from finishing it and it has been fantastic. It has to be his best book in years. I always love when he has 1000+ pages to expand and fill out the characters.
Am I in Horseville? Because I'm hearing nothing but naysayers!
I most recently heard news that Damon Lindelof doesn't want any part of the Dark Tower because its such a gigantic project to take on after Lost and he doesn't trust himself to do it right. Don't know how that would affect Abrams doing it or not. I love that King sold the film rights for $19.
I'd be fine with films as long as they started chronologically with Wizard and Glass. That's the easiest to make into a marketable film. If that does well, then there will be more leeway to make the sequel (Gunslinger or Gunslinger+Drawing of the Three) be the way it would need to be.
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.
Robert B Parker, who wrote both the Spenser books (there's about 40, I believe) and the Jesse Stone books, and at least one other series, died today. I loved the spenser books. Like reading candy. Read one anytime, fun and forgettable.
