At the age of 19 Stephen King decided he would write an epic similar to The Lord of the Rings. The ‘spaghetti Westerns’ of that time and a poem written by Robert Browning became the inspiration for the Dark Tower series.

Consisting of 8 books and over 4,000 pages, this series follows the Last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, on his quest to find the mysterious Dark Tower. His journey will take him across a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own, and now that world is about to arrive in cinemas with the long-awaited film adaption.

    I miss a book in this amazing infographic, The Wind through the Keyhole.

    You should have listed the novella in the series order.

  • Sean says:

    Is there any way I can get this made into a poster?

  • Paddy Campbell says:

    Great infographic for an epic series. Went to see The Dark Tower movie recently and loved it. I know a lot of critics were perhaps over-critical but I thought it was well done and contained enough of the basics to satisfy someone like me who had read the books.
