"Bev's book is a valuable tool for exploring the series. Both newcomers and frequent visitors to Mid-World will be informed and delighted." — Stephen King .
Bev Vincent Tell's The Overlook:
"My book has a fully alphabetical glossary that is only divided into two groups: Our world and Mid-World.
But that's less than half the book. There are essays about a variety of subjects, including overviews of the individual books and related books. There is an interview with Stephen King, as well as interviews with Robin Furth, Peter David, Richard Isanove and other artists associated with the Marvel series.
In fact, this is the first book to welcome the Marvel adaptations into the fold and discuss their place in (or out of) the canon.
I also interview Ron Howard and Akiva Goldsman about their plans for a movie -- it's the first time they've discussed their ideas at length and in detail.
Plus tons of other stuff, too. The first ever complete map of the known section of Mid-World. All of it, not just slices and regions!
OVERVIEW: The Dark Tower Companion: A Guide to Stephen King's Epic Fantasy by Bev Vincent About the Book: AN ALL-NEW COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANTLY CONSTRUCTED WORLDS IN ALL OF FICTION.
OVERVIEW: Stephen King's bestselling multi-volume Dark Tower series is the author's most inspired and imaginative creation. The story of Roland Deschain of Gilead, the last gunslinger, and his lifelong quest to reach the tower and save humanity across infinite parallel worlds is one that has consumed King throughout his career as characters and concepts crossed back and forth between the series and the rest of his fictional universe. The mythos continues to be chronicled and expanded in graphic novels overseen by King, interactive adventures on his website, a proposed film adaptation, and in a new Dark Tower novel. The Dark Tower Companion is the ultimate compendium to King's evolving magnum opus, presenting the mythology, history, and geography of this epic fantasy that has captivated generations of readers.
Featuring interviews with Stephen King, Ron Howard, Dark Tower expert Robin Furth and others!
Bev Vincent reveals The Dark Tower's influential literary origins, examines its connections to the vast majority of King's other novels, explores the expanded universe, catalogs the major characters, locations and concepts, and includes a travel guide to the story's real-world locations, giving fans who have followed Roland's journey—or those who are discovering it for the first time—a fascinating overview of the series and an inside look at the creative process of one of the world's most popular authors.
