Books I’ve Read in 2018 → The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King 3/5.

In The Gunslinger (originally published in 1982), King introduces his most enigmatic hero, Roland Deschain of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting, solitary figure at first, on a mysterious quest through a desolate world that eerily mirrors our own. Pursuing the man in black, an evil being who can bring the dead back to life, Roland is a good man who seems to leave nothing but death in his wake.

This new edition of The Gunslinger has been revised and expanded throughout by King, with new story material, in addition to a new introduction and foreword. It also includes four full-color illustrations in the hardcover and trade paperback formats.

She is the Meaning and the Purpose 
Of their dangerous way
She stands among the field of roses
Calling them everyday
Inside her black eternal stone are answers to everything
The Dark Tower!
Come on! Destroy Crimson King!

Eddie Dean: What are you doing?
Roland Deschain: Cartwheels. Am I not doing them?

The Dark Tower TV Show May Begin Filming This Summer:

darktowersource:

A TV show based upon The Dark Tower book series is still in the works and looks all set to begin filming across the pond this summer. Producers Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, and Akiva Goldsman spent a decade trying to adapt Stephen King’s meta-fantasy The Dark Tower to both the big and small screen. The ambitious plan was for a TV series and group of films to tell the combined story of Roland Deschain and attempt to imitate the multi-faceted series of novels. With last summer’s The Dark Tower movie, the first part of that dream was realized—but to less than stellar results.

Despite the failure of The Dark Tower in cinemas, the TV series seems to still be moving forward. The Dark Tower series has a showrunner and is likely in the process of casting now. And unlike the film, which took liberties with the source material, The Dark Tower TV show will be faithful to the books.

Omega Underground is reporting that The Dark Tower TV show will begin production this summer in both the UK and Ireland. Like Game of Thrones, it’s likely the show will utilize some of the unique landscapes in the area to bring the world of King’s books to life. By doing so, it can create a more alien world without crossing over to ours like the movie.

Whereas The Dark Tower film tried to condense a lot of plot into one film, the TV show is said to be based upon Wizard & Glass, the fourth book in the series. The novel took a step back from the main narrative and showed Roland as a young warrior in a small town dealing with a specific plot. The more streamlined approach—and full immersion in the fantasy world—could be just right for a TV show. From there, the series could then expand upon the world.

Stephen King says The Dark Tower TV show will be a reboot of sorts, meaning the series will be distancing itself from the movie. But by faithfully adapting the books—and focusing on a prequel-type story—the show should be able to avoid associations with the film.
