In the fourth powerful novel in Stephen King's bestselling fantasy quest, The Dark Tower beckons Roland, the Last Gunslinger, and the four companions he has gathered along the road. And, having narrowly escaped one world, they set out on a terrifying journey across the scarred urban wasteland to brave a new world where hidden dangers lie at every junction: a malevolent computer-run monorail hurtling towards self-destruction, Roland's relentlessly cunning old enemy, and the temptation of the wizard's diabolical glass ball, a powerful force in Roland's first love affair. A tale of long-ago love and adventure involving a beautiful and quixotic woman named Susan Delgado. And the Tower is closer...

Trains, Cowboys and Witches oh my!
Ill cut to the chase : Post apocalyptic wild west, cowboys, suicidal trains, and a perverted old witch. All of the above are in this book. If you like any of the above and have read the previous Dark Tower books..then you will love Wizard and Glass. This book has so many different elements packed between its covers that you wont be able to put it down. I highly recommend this work.

Best book in the series by far
Just great all around. Wish all of the books in the series were as good as this one.
Publishers Weekly, 1997-07-14 "I have written enough novels and stories to fill a solar system of the imagination, but Roland's story is my Jupiter," declares the Jove of popular novelists in his afterword to this bountiful fourth volume (of a projected seven) in the epic tale of Roland the Gunslinger. King began writing this alternate-world western saga in 1970, four years before Carrie saw print, but the first volume came out only in 1976 and subsequent volumes in 1989 and 1991. Each appeared in a limited edition hardcover from Grant, then in Plume trade paperbacks that sold wildly, as the Plume edition (see below) of this novel shouldĉfor while this isn't King at his most accomplished, it is King at his most ebullient. He's at his best hereĉas a resourceful explorer of humanity's shadow side, as a storyteller who can set pages on fireĉbut also, at times, at his worstĉas a purveyor of tasteless, pompous near-juvenilia. A recap of the earlier volumes guides readers into this entry, the longest yet, which opens with Roland and his band held captive on an impossibly fast train run by a homicidal computer. Once that menace is dealt with (in a way that invites adults to snigger like adolescents), Roland regales his fellows with the novel's core story, an acutely tragic tale of youthful love involving a witch, a diabolical crystal ball, a tear between worlds, betrayal, murder and dazzling action. The narrative concludes with a visit to a nightmarish, latter-day Oz. Mixing horror, fantasy both high and low, western icons and pop references, the novel lacks structural rigor and sometimes even sense, but it sweeps readers up in such swells of passion that few may notice, or care. Illustrated. 40,000-copy limited edition. (Aug.) FYI: The Plume edition, $17.95, 0-452-27917-8, due out in November 1997, will have a first printing of 1.5 million. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
