"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." With those famous first words, inspired by Robert Browning's Childe Roland and Sergio Leone's film, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and typed on an old Underwood in 1970, King penned the initial words of this long detailed account over thirty years in the completion. "Many of my fictions," King reflected, "refer back to Roland's world and Roland's story. My idea was to use the Dark Tower stories as a kind of summation, a way of unifying as many of my previous stories as possible.
