In 1970, Stephen King embarked on what would become the crowning achievement in his literary career-the Dark Tower. The seven-volume series, written and published over a period of 30 years, was inspired by Robert Browning's poem "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came," as well as J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, and the spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone. With the full cooperation of Stephen King himself, The Road to the Dark Tower examines the epic journey of the author to complete a story that threatened to overwhelm him. In this indispensable companion, Bev Vincent presents a book-by-book analysis of each volume in the series, tracing the Dark Tower's connections to King's other novels including The Stand, Insomnia, and Hearts in Atlantis, and offering insights from the author about the creative process involved in crafting his lifelong work-a work that has consumed not only Stephen King, but his legion of devoted readers. This is essential reading for any Dark Tower-or Stephen King-fan.

The complete graphic novel prequel series Stephen King's The Dark Tower: Beginnings—​now collected in a beautiful hardcover omnibus. "The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” With these unforgettable words, millions of readers were introduced to Stephen King's iconic character Roland Deschain of Gilead. Roland is the last of his kind, a “gunslinger” charged with protecting whatever goodness and light remains in his world—a world that “moved on,” as they say. In this desolate reality—a dangerous land filled with ancient technology and deadly magic, and yet one that mirrors our own in frightening ways—Roland is on a spellbinding and soul-shattering quest to locate and somehow save the mystical nexus of all worlds, all universes: the Dark Tower. Now, in this graphic novel omnibus collection of five books originally published by Marvel Comics and overseen by Stephen King himself, the untold story of Roland's past is finally revealed. Sumptuously drawn by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove, plotted by longtime Stephen King expert Robin Furth, and scripted by New York Times bestselling author Peter David, these five prequel graphic novels (The Gunslinger Born; The Long Road Home; Treachery; The Fall of Gilead; The Battle of Jericho Hill) delve in depth into Roland's origins—ultimately serving as the perfect introduction to Stephen King’s modern literary classic The Dark Tower for new readers, while long-time fans will thrill to adventures merely hinted at in his blockbuster novels.

Ayenee is not what they were promised. The man-made eighth continent was supposed to be a neutral land where the nations of the world could come together in peace. But when the Last War wiped out nearly all life on the planet, Ayenee became a refuge for the dwindling human population left behind. Over a century later, it stands as the center of new life in a changed world. However, by altering the face of the planet, humans have reawakened magic and monsters long ago forgotten, and those things are seeping back into reality more with each passing day. Lita and Rain will both do anything to leave the darknesses of their shattered pasts and the things they've done behind them. They have each created quiet lives where they can just be left alone. But when they are both pulled into a madman's plot to kill people they care about, the two are left with no choice - they must simultaneously confront their deepest inner monsters while also conjuring them up enough to do unspeakable things once more . . . this time in the name of good. THE CRIMES OF ORPHANS contains love, vampires, and intense action . . . but it is not a love story, vampire story, or action story. It is a story about two people who are so damaged that they cannot possibly forgive themselves, but they just might be able to find forgiveness in one another.
