THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE: A DARK TOWER NOVEL
'At the age of 19 Stephen decided he would like to write an epic similar to The Lord of the Rings. The 'spaghetti Westerns' of that time [specifically The Good, the Bad and the Ugly] and a poem written by Robert Browning, 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came', became the inspiration for his magnum opus. The series written and published separately over a period of 22 years consists of eight books, including The Wind Through the Keyhole, and the short story, 'The Little Sisters of Eluria' published in his collection, EVERYTHING'S EVENTUAL.'
