But is this really a pursuit? Or is the Man in Black luring him into a maze of dead ends and false horizons? Is the collapse of Mid-World already a forgone conclusion? The answer – as always – lies frustratingly at the world’s end. And with what John Farson has planned for him, Roland might not make it that far.”
