About Ned Dameron
Ned Dameron (born Edward Palfrey IV on May 7, 1943) is a native of Louisiana who turned to painting after studying sculpture and figurative realism with major artists at Tulane’s Newcomb School of Art. Dameron’s mother had an art gallery in New Orleans, and dealt in contemporary European paintings – many of which were of the fantastic school; this gave him the idea for painting in a similar vein. After graduation, 1970 he worked for an advertising agency then turned to easel paintings for local galleries, and freelance illustration painting under the name “Arthur Amber”. He lived and painted in San Francisco 1977-1979, and was influenced by the then emerging style sometimes called “California Visionary”. He returned to Louisiana, and since the 1980s has exhibited his personal works, while taking freelance assignments in the SF/F genre. Through the 1980s and into the 1990s, Dameron’s mix of romanticized architectural backgrounds, old-world style, and colorful palette were a good match to the sorts of literary projects undertaken by specialty house publishers, especially the fully illustrated high quality hard-cover book, published in limited quantities for collectors. Almost all his commissions during that time came from two publishers, Donald M. Grant and Underwood-Miller. For their books he produced cover art and many full color plates and black-and-white drawings for interior illustrations, numbering in the dozens for each book – most of which have long been sold. In the mid 1990s Dameron moved into gaming, finding the same opportunity there to build a freelance relationship with one major client (TSR).
The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands
The Waste Lands (subtitled "Redemption") is a dark fantasy novel by American writer Stephen King. It is the third book of the Dark Tower series. The original limited edition hardcover featuring full-color illustrations by Ned Dameron was published in 1991 by Grant. The book was reissued in 2003 to coincide with the publication of The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla.
The book derives its title from the T. S. Eliot 1922 poem The Waste Land, several lines of which are reprinted in the opening pages. In addition, the two main sections of the book ("Jake: Fear in a Handful of Dust" and "Lud: A Heap of Broken Images") are named after lines in the poem.
The Waste Lands was nominated for the 1991 Bram Stoker Award for Novel.
Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. His first crime thriller featuring Bill Hodges, MR MERCEDES, won the Edgar Award for best novel and was shortlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger Award. Both MR MERCEDES and END OF WATCH received the Goodreads Choice Award for the Best Mystery and Thriller of 2014 and 2016 respectively.
King co-wrote the bestselling novel Sleeping Beauties with his son Owen King, and many of King's books have been turned into celebrated films and television series including The Shawshank Redemption, Gerald's Game and It.
King was the recipient of America's prestigious 2014 National Medal of Arts and the 2003 National Book Foundation Medal for distinguished contribution to American Letters. In 2007 he also won the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America. He lives with his wife Tabitha King in Maine.
