On the Road to the Dark Tower

Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series has been on my radar for a long while. After finishing Jordan’s 14 book epic, The Wheel of Time, last year, I may be ready to tackle this beast. But, instead of reading the series straight through, I intend to include many of the related King stories connected with The Dark Tower Saga. Many recommended reading lists exist on the ‘net. I picked this list posted in an article over at One Man Asylum:

  • The Eyes of the Dragon
  • It
  • Everything’s Eventual: The Little Sisters of Eloria
  • The Dark Tower Book I: The Gunslinger
  • The Dark Tower Book II: The Drawing of the Three
  • The Dark Tower Book III: The Wastelands
  • Rose Madder
  • The Talisman
  • Night Shift: Night Surf
  • The Stand
  • The Dark Tower Book IV: Wizard & Glass
  • Night Shift: Jerusalem’s Lot
  • ‘Salem’s Lot
  • Night Shift: One for the Road
  • The Dark Tower Book VIII: The Wind Through the Keyhole
  • Hearts in Atlantis
  • The Dark Tower Book V: Wolves of the Calla
  • The Dark Tower Book VI: Song of Susannah
  • Black House
  • Insomnia
  • Skeleton Crew: The Mist
  • Everything’s Eventual: Everything’s Eventual
  • The Dark Tower Book VII: The Dark Tower

I’ve read many of the related novels (It, The Talisman, The Stand, ‘Salem’s Lot) but not for 20 years or more so I plan to revisit them. If you have a better list, drop me a line!
