An Extraordinary Accomplishment, Signed Nine Times by Stephen King



The ideal Dark Tower collection for the avid Stephen King collector. A complete and matching set of 12 volumes. An immaculate collection of fantasy literature that is 34 years in the completion. This is The Dark Tower series, of which King considers his magnum opus. Each volume is splendidly illustrated with a full-page color illustration and each signed by King and the illustrator. A complete partial-matching numbers set. The pinnacle of all Stephen King collections, in this rare and valuable set.

"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."
