196 The Gunslinger

by Stephen King, 1982
narrated by George Guidall

I have some weird literary blind spots. Until last year, I’d never read Toni Morrison. I still haven’t read a barrage of classics, like Catch-22, The Grapes of Wrath, or anything by Tolstoy. 477 more words

Reading Stephen King - The Drawing of the Three

The Drawing of the Three begins just seven hours after the ending of The Gunslinger and Roland is immediately attacked by a lobster-like creature — he starts to refer to them as “lobstrosity” — he eventually kills the creature but ends up losing his index and middle finger on his right hand and most of his big toe on his right foot in the fight. 562 more words

The Gunslinger and Character Backstory

When writing characters, where do you start? Maybe a name, or a physical description, or some basic personality traits. Before long you’ll probably wonder how your character got the way he or she is now.  508 more words


Behrg Reviews "The Gunslinger" by Stephen King

Start throwing your stones now, Constant Readers, but despite my immense love of King and his works I have never read the Dark Tower Series. The Gunslinger I’ve read a few times LONG ago, and I think I finished Drawing of the Three back then as well, but for whatever reason it didn’t take hold. 150 more words
