A big screen version of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower may have just hit a roadblock (read that story here), but during last night’s “Times Talks Live with Stephen King” to promote the author’s latest novel Under the Dome, he revealed some pretty big news about a possible eighth book in the series.
According to King-centric site Lilja’s Library, Zach Dionne of GQ provided the following quote: King stated he will write another Dark Tower novel. It will center around supporting characters and revolve around some important events between Wizard and Glass and Wolves of the Calla. One fan asked him to make sure Oy comes back, and King said not to worry, that Oy would return.
No one should be too surprised by King’s decision to return to the world he created for The Dark Tower. After all, the series has become the anchor that ties many of his works together. As more details become available on Book VIII, we’ll have them for you here. For everything else Dark Tower related, visit Discordia, the books’ official “online experience”.
