Last night I finished my third or fourth read of this fantastic novel. But something left me wondering...
Towards the end, when Lord Malshun has grabbed Tyler after he escaped the shackles, he looks into the shed and sees Charles Burnside dead on the floor. He makes the comment that "there's a fellow in upstate New York who shows great promise..."
Who is he talking about? I'm having some difficulty even remembering any stories or characters in Upstate NY. I'm assuming there is a Dark Tower connection here but I could be off on that as well. Any ideas?

Just finished today. I just assumed it was a reference to another random person like Burnside that would be his replacement because he was so old. Who knows like you said ... Other worlds than these. Really hope they have started at least taking about the third book because both were glorious!

just finished BH this morning, and this comment by Lord Malshun stuck in my head too.
it seems that he would be referring to a Burnside replacement (like taggs said), someone
who could locate Breakers.
my first thought was Dinky Earnshaw, but I can't remember where Everything's Eventual
was set and it doesn't exactly line up with Dinky's skill set.
I'm reading BV's 'The Road to the Dark Tower' now, and I'm hoping the answer is there...
or in the (painfully delayed) updated Dark Tower Companion.
