thruout the series the fall of Gilead is mentioned often. Is there a book that elaborates on what happened? if not, i wonder if King ever thought about writing the story - maybe something like TWttKH - a throw back, Roland telling the story during some downtime.

If Stephen King didn't actually write it, I'm not interested. Just like the new Star Wars movies. I may eventually watch it, but it doesn't count!
...then you're cheating yourself....the troupe headed by Robin Furth did a great job of spinning a faithful extrapolation of what little info King gave us....
