I don't want to google it as I always end up seeing some kind of spoiler!

Is this to be read after Wizard And Glass? Or as book 8?

Help!
Check out this forum, many folks have asked the same. Personally, I read it at the end of the series. (Because I had already read the whole series before it came out, but it really doesn't matter either way.)

I read this book first, before I even knew anything about the Dark Tower series and I enjoyed it at face value, not getting any references but then that's okay too.

Same with 11/22/63 - there is a reference in there to the book It (and two of the characters) but I didn't get that reference either.

I think he wrote something about how he hoped people could read The Wind Through the Keyhole and enjoy it, no matter what. :love:

OK, so I have nearly come to the end of my journey to the Dark Tower, I will have finished The Dark tower (book 7) by the end of the week. I have read them all back to back;
Is the Wind through The Keyhole good to go straight onto or is it one to read later as a re-visit? :)

Either choice is good. For those of us who took the journey as the books were published,TWTTK was a "reunion".
