To the person that asked about adding more to the Dark Tower series, I heard they were going to start the Marvel Comics adaptations again. They're starting with DT2. No new material, but it's something. That's all I've heard about.

Do you know if Stephen King plans to add anything else to the Dark Tower series?

I’m not sure! I haven’t heard anything being whispered!

Fellow mods and Tower Junkies, do you know of anything besides the movie adaptation being talked about?

Hi, I don’t know how to respond to the question on lost (i’m a tumblr lurker), but I figured I could answer it as someone who has read DT and seen lost. There’s the man in black in the DT, and Locke/Jacob’s brother, who dresses exclusively in black and is a similar sort of character. There’s also some homages or callbacks to DT and SK because Carlton Cuse and J.J. abrams are DT fans. I wouldn’t say it’s based off of DT as much as the showrunners, as fans, wanted to reference their favorite works, and were possibly inspired.

the number’s 4 8 15 16 23 42 (and the sum 108) pop up over and over again, like 19.

It utilizes flashbacks/alternate timelines like in book three

The purgatory of the flash-forward world waiting for them to be ready/ to leave together, and the island being a place for them to become whole, and roland’s entire existence over the series being repeated until he is ready to enter the door at the top of the tower.

Made up brands/companies that feature prominently (mr. cluck’s chicken shack, Dharma vs. Nozz-a-la, NCP)

Then some characters reading or referencing SK books, or just works like tower or beam popping up in random places.

Hope this was helpful! Sorry I don’t know how to answer directly.

This is a fine way to answer for so much information, thankee-sai!

I hope this helps!

Hi, did the Lost series have anything to do with DT? I know during the book club session before the plane crashed someone was holding a Stephen King book and John Locke/Jacob's brother was a Man in Black type character but are there any more tie-ins? Thanks.

I have never seen LOST so I’m publishing this in the hopes that other mods/followers/tag trackers may be of more use than I am!

Dearest Tower Junkies,

I apologize for the borderline-negativity and rudeness that has been posted recently.

I’ve deleted the anonymous hate message (with the note that it is probably the only one this blog has EVER gotten, thankee sais) and am re-pledging to myself and to all of you travelers of the Path of the Beam to keep The Tower Junkie as positive and neutrally-opinionated as possible.

You can read my long post about it on my personal blog here, and/or message me on that blog with any questions.

I’m sorry for any/all negativity I’ve brought to your days or your dashboards! I beg pardon; I had forgotten my father’s face.

Long days and pleasant nights, always,

waitforhightide
