About the Edition

Stephen King returns to the Dark Tower with the eagerly anticipated fourth volume in his bestselling series. Roland, the last gunslinger, and his band of followers have narrowly escaped one world, and slipped into the next. It is here that Roland tells them a long-ago tale of love and adventure involving a beautiful and quixotic woman named Susan Delgado. With shocking plot twists and driving narrative force, Wizard and Glass brings readers to the midpoint of the series--and leaves them waiting eagerly for the concluding volumes of the Dark Tower.

First Sentence

The town of Candleton was a poisoned and irradiated ruin, but not dead; after all the centuries it still twitched with tenebrous life-trundling beetles the size of turtles, birds that looked like small, misshapen dragonlets, a few stumbling robots that passed in and out of the rotten buildings like stainless steel zombies, their joints squalling, their nuclear eyes flickering.
