    While reading The Talisman Again. I couldn't help but notice a few things. But i must pose them as a question to see if i am not the only one. Is Jack Rolands twinner? Is Morgan Sloat The twinner of the Crimson King? Always forced to watch "The Black Hotel" But never allowed to enter and retrieve what he thinks lie within? Which leads me to this question Is The Black Hotel The Dark Towers twinner? Had Jack entered the equivalent of the tower in his world as a boy. While Roland was what? Earning his guns? Loving a young woman promised to another? Resting in the sisters tent? Am i just out of my mind? Have i read these books to many times? Mayhap. Is my mind blown ****ing aye it is!

    Interesting questions. It’s been so long since I read The Talisman that I can’t really answer. However, the first time I read DT I do remember constantly thinking about The Talisman. So, unofficially, I guess I would say definitely maybe. ::P

    ...hiya Bunk!...unintentional parallels but worth consideration...King enjoys making us extrapolate our own story points....

    Interesting ideas, but I'm siding with no.
    My rationale being that since Jack's twinner was Jason, and his death made Jack a singular being allowing him to flip back and forth between worlds. If Jack was Roland's twinner also, than he would no longer be singular.

    I think?

    It's all a bit mind-bending. I could subscribe to the theory that the Agincourt is a version of the Dark Tower though - and in fact, a more interesting place than the one we read about at the end of the DT series IMO.

    of course...there is always the possibility that different worlds have different rules.

    I disagreed but at the same time I call up the old standby line...all things are possible in different levels of the tower...
