Dark Tower Books Overview

When Stephen King was 19 years old, he was inspired by “Lord of the Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkien and finally decided that he would write his own epic saga. He further was inspired by classical “spaghetti westerns” like “The good, the bad and the ugly” and, most importantly, by the poem “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came” (see link to free ebook). After all, it finally lasted more than 22 years until Stephen King finally finished his magnum opus “The Dark Tower”.

Here’s a list of the books of the main series in correct reading order:
