Inspired in equal parts by Robert Browning’s poem, “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came,” J.R.R. Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings, and Sergio Leone’s spaghetti Western classics, The Dark Tower series is an epic of Arthurian proportions. It is Stephen King’s magnum opus, and is the center of his amazing creative universe.

The Dark Tower - Stephen King. This is Stephen King's Magnum Opus. Along with The Stand, this series is one you simply cannot put down. Brilliant!! For added fun, listen to the audio version (with George Guidell and Frank Mueller -- NOT the Stephen King audio!!) It goes on forever, and still you're sad to see it end...

I think the Dark Tower series as a whole is a staggering achievement and belongs in any discussion without qualification of the “Greatest Fantasy Series of All Time.”

Hands down the best opening line of any book ever written. The Dark Tower Series: The Gunslinger. Best

The Dark Tower Series. Proud to say I finished reading this entire series. Glad Stephen King finally did finish it after so many years in the writing.
