1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    Finally! All I can say is wow. What a journey - and after reading the end I gave myself a day or two to process the initial shock (and bittersweet heartbreak!) and I think there really couldn't have been any other ending than that one....... miss the ka-tet already!
    What next????

  4. The Nameless

    The Nameless M-O-O-N - That spells Nameless

    Sisters of eluria from everything's eventual is a prequel. Have you read that? And there is one from hearts in Atlantis that is connected.

    I have read the Hearts in Atlantis - I was stoked to see Ted Brautigan in DT7! Was hoping he'd make an appearance. I haven't read Sisters of Eluria - I think it's the only short story collection of SK's that I don't own!
    Must be time for a trip to the bookshop... any excuse :oops:

    King gave us the perfect ending! I, along with a few folken here on the SKMB, were abit upset the way it ended, but after thinking about it for a while (like you), I came to the same conclusion- there couldn't have been a different ending- not one that would work properly anyway. King left it up to us in the end.

    Looks like most of the direct tie-in novels have already been referenced, but others who feature characters you will recognize are Salem's Lot and The Stand. If you haven't read "IT", you will also pick up some references that were made on Odd Lane.

    What was the reason you couldn't log in with this account again? (If you want to revert to this account, you'll need to contact Jordan directly. (He will probably need the email address you used for the first account.)

    Just finish about two weeks ago re reading this series.
    Still belive its his best work., especially since it seems ALL his works somehow lead to the Dark tower.
    Lov his appearance in the series.
    I always look for the King character in his stories and I feel he wants to be like Roland but is more like Eddie

    This^ is interesting.

    One of the things I enjoyed most about the story was the process of the amalgamation of the ka-tet. I was talking to someone once about how I didn't like the way Roland simply turns his friends into pale reflections of himself, and it was pointed out to me that that was only half of what was going on.

    Sooner or later I'm going to have to read this thing again.
