The Dark Tower by Stephen King tie-in

The first book in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series, The Gunslinger, is getting a movie tie-in edition next week.

I’m a big fan of the series having read them back around 2003/2004. However to be honest I’m not sure about the movie as the trailer I saw seems to have Roland arriving in New York to battle the Man in Black, which really isn’t the story in the book.

Stil, it’s a nice looking edition and if nothing else hopefully it will get more people reading the books.

Here’s the blurb…

‘The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.’ The iconic opening line of Stephen King’s groundbreaking series, The Dark Tower, introduces one of his most enigmatic and powerful heroes: Roland of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger.

Roland is a haunting figure, a loner, on a spellbinding journey toward the mysterious Dark Tower, in a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own.

On his quest, Roland begins a friendship with a kid from New York named Jake, encounters an alluring woman and faces an agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black.

The paperback tie-in edition is out on 20 June.
