I hate the series mostly because it makes the less of King's books feel less real.

I've never got past the first one.
One thing I don't like about King is how his characters recur in different books. It REALLY throws me.

I like it in every book EXCEPT the Dark Tower. So mostly I blame the Dark Tower for my hatred over the overuse of Randell Flagg, but I guess I could as easily blame thato n King himself or on The Stand.

Stats time: Liam's stint in the top 10 Superthread posters has been brief. His 300 Club entry in Michigan City did not get him THAT far ahead of Reggo, who zinged Liam in Zing and has regained her 10th placing.

Nobody else changed positions or reached post count milestones.

The second book, however, is definitely worth getting through the first booik to read.

It does "download," technically. At least Rhapsody does. You can't skip ahead through the track unless it's downloaded fully.

Funnily enough, one of my favourite King short stories is a Dark Tower offshoot. It's in Just After Sunset and it's called The Little Sisters of...something. /alzheimers.

I love The Resistance. It's just my least favourite Muse album.

Well, a lot of characters and places recur in his books because many of them take place in the same region of Maine, especially in Derry or Castle Rock. In other cases, bigger events happen outside of Maine in some books, and get mentioned in other books, as sort of urban legends (like the events of The Shining are mentioned in one book or another), and then there's Paul Sheldon, the writer in Misery, whose books are mentioned by a character in another book.

As for Flagg... he's a well traveled shit-stirrer. Where there's trouble, he tends to be there, and he works for the Crimson King, so that doubles his dastardly duties. His ability to use sorcery of whatever sort to travel between dimensions helps him easily end up in various places.

AND NO HATING ON EYES OF THE DRAGON, ASHLEY. It's really good and involves a dollhouse, kthx. Plus he wrote it for his daughter because she didn't like his previous gory-scary books.

Given my usual placing and the fact I've made 200+ in every fucking thread since July, that might as well be last!

Amesoeurs is French post-punk meets black metal. Featuring the guy behind Alcest and some woman he knows and a drummer called Winterhalter.

Yeah.

Eyes Of The Dragon will always be my first SK love. I think The Stand is probably my favourite now, but SO much love for the Dragon.
