Books & Beginnings XV

img_1108Reveal: The Gunslinger, Book I of The Dark Tower by Stephen King makes the list at Books & Beginnings XIV. Yes, it is Stephen King again. I never read anything else like this. I tore through the first three books like a reading locust, devoured them and then was made to wait like ten years or something for the next. I wish they had not bothered with a film of this one. It belonged in the vast world of the imagination, such an unusual and yet common tale. Good pursuing evil across a desert. Then intersecting with a modern boy. So strange. So familiar. So brilliant.

 

Up Next: I found a book that I should have discovered years earlier.

I’ll make my report as if I told a story, for I was taught as a child on my homeworld that Truth is a matter of imagination.
