Publisher Comments:

"""I found this overview of In-World, Mid-World, and End-World both entertaining and invaluable. So, I am convinced, will you."" — from the foreword by Stephen KingThe Dark Tower is the backbone of Stephen King's legendary career. Inspired more than thirty years ago by works as diverse as J. R. R. Tolkien's epics, Robert Browning's poetry, and Sergio Leone's Westerns, this is the tale that Stephen King has never abandoned. When he typed the first sentence in 1970, King feared the telling might take several lifetimes, but two thousand pages and four books later, the end is in sight. Published in anticipation of The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla, A Concordance, Volume I is the definitive guide to the first four books in Stephen King's bestselling epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower. With the hundreds of characters, Mid-World geography, and the High Speech lexicon, this comprehensive handbook is one no Dark Tower fan will want to be without. It is the perfect way in for readers new to the series, or the perfect way back in for longtime fans who read the first four books years ago."

Synopsis:

This is the first half of a two-volume concordance for Stephen King's epic Dark Tower series, detailing character names, place names, and references to each other and the rest of King's work. This first volume was originally prepared for King's personal use during his writing of the final books in the series, V through VII, to be published this year and next. Line drawings throughout.

Synopsis:

The definitive guide to Stephen King's bestselling epic fantasy series, The Dark Tower, to be published in conjunction with the Viking reissue of the first four books in the series, and in anticipation of Scribner's publication of the final three books. From hundreds of characters to Mid-World geography to the High Speech lexicon, no self-respecting Dark Tower fan will want to be without this comprehensive handbook to the series. Stephen King, himself, couldn't do without it. As he explains in the introduction, he commissioned the concordance for his own private use while writing the final three books. When he found Robin Furth's work to be "entertaining and invaluable," he immediately recommended the manuscript for publication.

The publication of the final three Dark Tower books, commencing in November 2003 with The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla, is the most anticipated event in Stephen King's legendary career. This first volume of the Concordance is the perfect way in, or back in, for readers new to the series, and for longtime fans who read the first four books years ago. The second volume of the Concordance will follow in November 2004 in conjunction with the Scribner publication of the final book in the series, The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower.
