Wizard and Glass (The Dark Tower) - hardcover

ISBN: 188041838X

[SR: 3590831], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781880418383], Donald M Grant Publishers,US, Donald M Grant Publishers,US, Book, [PU: Donald M Grant Publishers,US], 1997-12-31, Donald M Grant Publishers,US, Wizard and Glass, the fourth episode in King's white-hot Dark Tower series, is a sci-fi/fantasy novel that contains a post-apocalyptic Western love story twice as long. It begins with the series' star, world-weary Roland, and his world-hopping posse (an ex-junkie, a child, a plucky woman in a wheelchair, and a talking dog-like pet named Oy the Bumbler) trapped aboard a runaway train. The train is a psychotic multiple personality that intends to commit suicide with them at 800 m.p.h.--unless Roland and pals can outwit it in a riddling contest. It's a great race, for the mind and pulse. Films should be this good. Then comes a 567-page flashback about Roland at age 14. It's a well-marbled but meaty tale. Roland and two teenage friends must rescue his first love from the dirty old drooling mayor of a post-apocalyptic cowboy town, thwart a civil war by blowing up oil tanks, and seize an all-seeing crystal ball from Rhea, a vampire witch. The love scenes are startlingly prominent and earthier than most romance novels (they kiss until blood trickles from her lip). After an epic battle ending in a box canyon to end all box canyons, we're back with grizzled, grown-up Roland and the train-wreck survivors in a parallel world: Kansas in 1986, after a plague. The finale is a weird fantasy takeoff of The Wizard of Oz. Some readers will feel that the latest novel in King's most ambitious series has too many pages--almost 800--but few will deny it's a page-turner., 279256, Contemporary, 279254, Fantasy, 4034595031, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 279257, Epic, 279254, Fantasy, 4034595031, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

"Yes", Blaine said at last. "I agree. If I solve. All the riddles you ask me, I will take you with me to the place where the path ends in the clearing. If one of you tells a riddle I cannot solve, I will spare your lives and leave you in Topeka, from whence you may continue your quest for the Dark Tower, if you so choose. Have I understood the terms and limits of your proposal correctly, Roland son of Steven?" "Yes". There was a moment of silence, broken only by the hard steady throb of the slo-trans turbines bearing them on across the waste lands, bearing them along the Path of the Beam toward Topeka, where Mid-World ended and End-World-began. "So", cried the voice of Blaine. "Cast your nets, wanderers try me with your questions, and let the contest begin". It is with this bargain that The Waste Lands ends; it is with this bargain that Wizard and Glass begins. This long awaited sequel designed and illustrated by artist Dave McKean features eighteen full page color paintings, seven black & white drawings and runs over 800 pages. This First Edition is being published in a 1,200 copy two volume slipcased edition signed by both Stephen King and Dave McKean and in a single volume 40,000 copy Limited Trade Hardcover Edition.
