Posting this mostly so I can go find it later: The Dark Tower – Official Web Site: the Dark Tower stuff is easily my favorite King stuff, and I’m stoked that he’s finally written the last three books of the series. (And, I gather, gone back and rewritten the first book, which is being rereleased sometime this summer I think. Cool.)

I think I read the first book, and was less than enchanted (this was during my brief fling with Stephen King, quite a few years ago).
But you might convince me to re-read it …
Interestingly, the first book was actually one of the first things King ever wrote (or started to write) — it was about 80% done or first drafted or something before he left it alone for 15 years, wrote the next book and published them both.
Of the first book, he’s recently said “there was some good stuff going on, but I was very much a novice writer and trying very hard… too hard… to write a Very Important Book.
Consequently, he’s rewritten, both to mature the whole thing and bring it up to par with the rest of the series.
Really, it’s one of my favorite series.
