Stephen King's the Dark Tower: A Concordance, Volume II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stephen King's The Dark Tower: A Concordance, Volume II will be the essential final piece in every Dark Tower collection. It is a definitive and exhaustive guide to the many worlds, argots, characters, and cross-references to King's other works that appear in books V through VII — Wolves of the Calla, Song of Susannah, and The Dark Tower.

Originally prepared for King's personal use during the writing of the final books in the series, and extensively expanded for readers, the Concordance is an incredibly useful reference. This is the essential guide for Dark Tower readers, proclaimed by King himself to be "both entertaining and invaluable."

Synopsis:

The second part of the two-volume concordance, covering Books V-VII of Stephen King's bestselling epic Dark Tower series, to be published in the wake of the final book, The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower.

About the Author

Robin Furth was born and raised in Philadelphia, and attended the University of Pennsylvania. While enrolled in the Ph.D. program at the University of Maine, she was introduced to Stephen King, who needed a research assistant. Her work with King as he completed the Dark Tower series produced the Dark Tower concordance. Furth has since written the story lines for Marvel's comic book spin-off series The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born. She also wrote Marvel's Legion of Monsters: Satana #1 and Del Ray Comics' adaptation of The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub. She divides her time between Maine, the south of England, and Mid-World. Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. Among his most recent are Full Dark No StarsBlockade BillyUnder the Dome, Just After Sunset, the Dark Tower novels, Cell, From a Buick 8, Everything's Eventual, Hearts in Atlantis, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, Lisey's Story and Bag of Bones. His acclaimed nonfiction book, On Writing, was recently re-released in a tenth anniversary edition. King was the recipient of the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, and in 2007 he was inducted as a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America.  He lives in Maine with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.
