New York: Random House, . Octavo, boards. First edition. This copy signed on the title page by Straub and King. Sequel to the Talisman. The protagonist of that novel, Jack Sawyer, is now grown and encounters a serial killer with connections to The Territories and the Dark Tower. "...there's so much here to revel in, from expertly executed sequences of terror, awe or passion—the novel is a deep reservoir of genuine emotion—to some of the most wonderful characters to spring from a page in years, to a story whose energy is so high and craft so accomplished that most readers will wish it ran twice its great length. What is probably the most anticipated novel of the year turns out to be its most memorable to date, a high point in both the King and Straub canons." - Publisher's Weekly book review.

"Different in tone from most of King's work – and perhaps more demandingly inventive than usual – these have an undeniable mythic charge, partly because of the alienated-adolescent theme that runs through them. As the series continued, it increasingly took on a quest structure typical of – and inhabited a landscape whose metaphysical pathos also evokes – pure Fantasy, though Post-Holocaust imagery also pervades the tale, and a self-aware AI is a major threat to the protagonists." - SFE online.
