Thank you, Martin, for giving me an introduction to King's "Dark Tower" series. I have a great respect for him, and his books were some of my earliest reading experiences. I don't think he is a great writer but he is a great myth-maker--he understands and expresses American mythology. He's the closest thing we have to a Homer right now.

Best,

Aaron

Aaron, I think you would enjoy The Dark Tower. King said it is flawed, which I think meant how the parts are organized and the continuity. But, in regards to myth-making, this series of novels is the quintessence of the genre.
