Inspired in equal parts by Robert Browning’s poem, “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came,” J.R.R. Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings, and Sergio Leone’s spaghetti Western classics, The Dark Tower series is an epic of Arthurian proportions. It is Stephen King’s magnum opus, and is the center of his amazing creative universe.

I think the Dark Tower series as a whole is a staggering achievement and belongs in any discussion without qualification of the “Greatest Fantasy Series of All Time.”

The Dark Tower - Stephen King.  This is Stephen King's Magnum Opus.  Along with The Stand, this series is one you simply cannot put down.  Brilliant!!  For added fun, listen to the audio version (with George Guidell and Frank Mueller -- NOT the Stephen King audio!!)  It goes on forever, and still you're sad to see it end...

JJ Abrams take on the Dark Tower cast. Interesting.  How good would THIS movie be! Only with Viggo Mortensen as Roland and Daryl Dixon as Eddie Dean, shut up!!

Illustration by Michael Whelan for 'The Dark Tower' by Stephen King. Excellent series of books that I was reluctant to start (because I was reluctant to embrace 'The Gunslinger' at the start.) A lot to read, but many, many wonderful memorable moments in the 'Dark Tower' books.
