The Wind Through the Keyhole

The Wind Through the Keyhole - Jae Lee, Stephen King Down the rabbit hole again. This eighth novel in the Dark Tower series is set between "Wizard and Glass" (4th in the series) and "Wolves of the Calla" (5th). I originally resisted reading the entire series, simply because the story didn't appeal to me; of course, Stephen King comes through as always, an ace story teller who draws the reader in and keeps him there. Roland and his Ka-tet are taking shelter from a violent killer storm (a "starkblast"), and to pass the time, Roland tells a story from his days as a young gunslinger from Gilead; in the midst of that, he passes along a fairy tale--The Wind Through The Keyhole--that was told to a very young Roland Deschain. Excellent addition to the series, adding some color to the characters and more details bout Mid-world. Now I'll more than likely go back and begin reading the entire series again. Why does Stephen King have to be so bloody good?
