Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger
By Stephen King
The first novel in King's magnificent epic, relaunched in trade paperback to accompany trade paperbacks of the final 3 volumes in the series.
In THE GUNSLINGER, Stephen King introduces readers to one of his most enigmatic heroes, Roland of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting figure, a loner, on a spellbinding journey into good and evil, in a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own.
In his first step towards the powerful and mysterious Dark Tower, Roland encounters an alluring woman named Alice, begins a friendship with Jake, a kid from New York, and faces an agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black.
Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, THE GUNSLINGER leaves readers eagerly awaiting the next chapter.
And the Tower is closer...
Stephen King is the bestselling author of more than forty books. Recent titles include ON WRITING, DREAMCATCHER, EVERYTHING'S EVENTUAL and the final three volumes in the DARK TOWER series. He lives with his wife, the novelist Tabitha King, in Bangor, Maine.
