The Dark Tower Series is a series of seven books written by Stephen King, between 1970 and 2004, widely considered to be his magnum opus. The series incorporates elements of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and Western stories.

They revolve around Roland Deschain's quest to find and protect the Dark Tower. King has described the series as his magnum opus. Besides the seven novels that compose the series proper, many of his other books relate back to the story, introducing concepts and characters that come into play as the series progresses. After the series was finished, a series of prequel comics followed.

The series has many inspirations, but was chiefly inspired by the poem, Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came, by Robert Browning. Amongst his other inspiration, King lists The Lord of the Rings, the Arthurian Legend, and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly as influences that led to the series. (Read More...)
