Dark Tower Connection

    This has been on my mind for years (obviously) and I felt I would put it out here to King fans.

    There is a line we hear down in the Old Kingdom from Sally's friend. "Let the lamp affix it's beam. The only Emperor is the Emperor of Ice Cream."

    The affixing the beam line is what stays with me. Could this be an unsung connection to the Tower?

    Personal opinion-- all SK books have a DT connect is some way, means or form. It is his universe.

    There are a number of Dark Tower connections in Kingdom Hospital -- the episode Butterfingers encapsulates the idea of the series. The Emperor of Ice Cream (a poem by Wallace Stevens) is the name of a section in 'Salem's Lot, and the entire poem is quoted as an epigraph.
