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.

There are a series of comics set after Wizard & Glass. Not written by King, but overseen by him. I wonder if that had anything to do with this decision.

I'll read whatever he puts out under the Dark Tower banner, because even at its worst (parts of book 6 and most of 7), the series is still the best I've ever read.

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.

I'm reading it right now and it's one of those that if I don't watch myself, I will stay up all night reading. I haven't done that with one of his new books since before Regulators.

I'll gladly take another Dark Tower book. Maybe it will wash the bad taste out of my brain that the last couple of books left. Steve ruined the Tower when he wrote himself into the story.

Stephen King has also said recently that he has an idea for a sequel to "The Shining". Titled "Dr. Sleep", it would feature a middle-aged Danny Torrance working at a hospice.

I wonder if we'll ever get the Dark Tower movies? Hopefully J.J. Abrams will focus on the Tower, not Star Trek, now that Lost is ending.

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.
