About This Item

First edition first printing of the eighth novel in the Dark Tower series. Light edge wear. In fine / near fine condition.

Synopsis

In The Wind Through the Keyhole , Stephen King returns to the rich landscape of Mid-World, the spectacular territory of the Dark Tower fantasy saga that stands as his most beguiling achievement. Roland Deschain and his ka-tet âÈ' Jake, Susannah, Eddie, and Oy, the billy-bumblerâÈ'encounter a ferocious storm just after crossing the River Whye on their way to the Outer Baronies. As they shelter from the howling gale, Roland tells his friends not just one strange story but two . . . and in so doing, casts new light on his own troubled past. In his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt-ridden year following his motherâÈçs death, Roland is sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a âÈêskin-manâÈë preying upon the population around Debaria. Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, the brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beastâÈçs most recent slaughter. Only a teenager himself, Roland calms the boy and prepares him for the following dayâÈçs trials by reciting a story from the Magic Tales of the Eld that his mother often read to him at bedtime. âÈêA personâÈçs never too old for stories,âÈë Roland says to Bill. âÈêMan and boy, girl and woman, never too old. We live for them.âÈë And indeed, the tale that Roland unfolds, the legend of Tim Stoutheart, is a timeless treasure for all ages, a story that lives for us. King began the Dark Tower series in 1974; it gained momentum in the 1980s; and he brought it to a thrilling conclusion when the last three novels were published in 2003 and 2004. The Wind Through the Keyhole is sure to fascinate avid fans of the Dark Tower epic. But this novel also stands on its own for all readers, an enchanting and haunting journey to RolandâÈçs world and testimony to the power of Stephen KingâÈçs storytelling magic.

About Scene of the Crime Books, IOBA

My wife and I have been operating Scene of the Crime Books since 1996. In 2004 we attempted to go against the market and open a storefront on Oakville Ontario. In August 2006 we closed the brick and mortar and humbly went back to just internet. We now do internet and appointment only through our home. So if you're in our neighborhood let us know 24 hours ahead of time. Thank you. Don Longmuir
