    There's no coming back from that assessment. :) what if I told you said friend created this username a couple of years ago on another site and I kept it? If you don't buy that, you should know that "t" is the 7th last letter to the alphabet.

    And if you take the 't' out of alphabet you end up with 7 letters........

    As I'm reading Dr. Sleep, I am convinced that DT references are apparent. The whole idea that names and people are recycled from one version of the world/time to another (Susan/Susana or Calla/Callohan) exist (Abra, Ahh Bra store, for example). In addition, red represents discontent and disorder (and firehot anger in Dan's case), which may in another world equal the Red King. References to True Knot in Salem's lot (I haven't gotten far enough to tell if the True Knot is some kind of vampire referenced in DT). I also see Dan and Abra's initial psychic connection as the forming of a ka-tet. Small references, mind you, but enough to keep me making connections.

    Ok so just to follow up....it's taken me eons to get halfway through Dr. SLEEP because of my schedule, but there it is.

    Spoiler

    "There are other world's than these"....This is said by Dan to John in Iowa. This makes me happy. #theDarkTowerliveson

    I've mentioned this in another post but I was wondering if 11/22/63 takes place on another level of the Tower. Richie and Bev say they believe "the guy in a clown suit" won't be coming back but in IT Bill starts forgetting on his bike ride home...thoughts?

    Having just finished "Ur" published in Bazaar of Bad Dreams, this is CLEARLY a Dark Tower novella. I posted a discussion over in this novella's discussion about questions I have on that story. In it, two Taheen are acting in an arguably lawful fashion and in some ways in service TO the Tower, despite their allegiance to the Crimson King, as evidenced by their red eye badges. GOOD story, and I loved the tie ins to tDT, but it left me wondering WHY the Taheen were acting the way they were.

    Oh, for other books/stories that have tDT connections here's a pretty exhaustive list: Stephen King works related to The Dark Tower series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And here's another on the official website: The Dark Tower - Connections

    Wasn't 19 mentioned in The Gunslinger as the devil's number? Was it added in the revised edition?

    Yes, it was added in the revised version. Not present in original.

    It and 11/22/63 are definitely not on our level of the tower
