'A person's never too old for stories', he said to Bill. 'Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.' And stories like these, they live for us.

As Roland Deschain, and his ka-tet leave the Emerald city, a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam.

While they shelter from the starkblast, Roland tells a story about his younger days, when he was sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-changer.

At the scene of the crime he had tried to comfort a terrified young boy called Bill Streeter by reciting a story from The Magic Tales of the Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, 'The Wind through the Keyhole'.

[A] phantasmagorical folk tale . . . King's ability to entertain and unsettle cannot be denied. The skill with which he delivers a shock or sense of gothic terror is simply unmatched * Independent on Sunday *
Perfectly balanced: another excellent example of King's sheer skill as a storyteller. * Daily Express *
Like John Steinbeck, he's an unfussy writer whose voice is rooted equally in the rhythms of everyday speech and the mythic made manifest in everyday life. Indeed, reading King, you often sense the presence of the dustbowl America of The Grapes of Wrath . . . a King novel has a sparse elegance that most novelists never achieve in a whole career. Put it down to the insistent, economical and wholly distinctive authorial voice. * SFX Magazine *
A frantic-paced puzzle-box adventure that encompasses gunslinger Roland Deschain's early years, werewolves and powerful storytelling. * Shortlist *
King is one of the great popular artists of our time. * Independent *
Classic King, fine characters, compellingly written in a gripping, well-honed plot * Daily Express on WOLVES OF THE CALLA *
Superbly energetic, it's King at his best. * Mail on Sunday on WIZARD AND GLASS *

“Beautiful and Exciting”

This book is a fantastic addition to the Dark Tower series but it can also be read as a single story. It was lovely to be reunited with Roland and the gang (albeit for a little while). The two stories told in the book... More
