However, things are about to get much worse. The six invisible magnetic Beams, which maintain the alignment of time, space, size, and dimension, are weakening.
Because of this, the Tower itself is foundering. Unless Roland can find a way to save the Beams and stabilize the Tower, all of reality will blink out of existence. The Man in Black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed. Following his quarry across the demon-infested Mohaine Desert, Roland confronts a mad preacher woman and her murderous flock, holds palaver with a speaking demon, and finally befriends a young boy from our world named Jake Chambers.
After his final confrontation with the Man in Black in a remote mountain Golgotha, an exhausted Roland awakes on the beach of the Western Sea and is immediately attacked by a shoreline monster known as a lobstrosity. Roland kills the clawed creature, but not before it bites off two of his fingers and half of one big toe. The first opens onto New York, , and the mind of a heroin addict called Eddie Dean.
Now Roland and Jake exist in different worlds, but they are joined by the same madness: But nothing is easy in Mid-World. Along the way our tet stumbles into the ruined city of Lud, and are caught between the warring gangs of the Pubes and the Grays. The only way out of Lud is to wake Blaine the Mono, an insane train that has a passion for riddling, and for suicidal journeys. While following the deserted I toward a distant glass palace, they hear the atonal squalling of a thinny, a place where the fabric of existence has almost entirely worn away.
While camping near the edge of the thinny, Roland tells his ka-tet a story about another thinny, one that he encountered when he was little more than a boy. The Wind Through the Keyhole is a story within a story within a story. A great storm, called a Starkblast, is about to blow. While our tet is sheltering from the storm, Roland tells a story about his younger days, when he and his tet-mate Jamie DeCurry were sent to Debaria to investigate reports of a skin-man, a kind of dangerous shape-changer.

От кого они прячутся? King argued that such laws allow legislators to ignore the economic divide between the rich and poor, and the easy availability of guns, which he felt were the more legitimate causes of violence. Work Writing style In his nonfiction book "", King discusses his writing style at great length. King believes that, generally speaking, good stories cannot be called consciously and should not be plotted out beforehand; they are better served by focusing on a single "seed" of a story and letting the story grow itself.
King often begins a story with no idea how it will end. He told her he did not know. King believes strongly in this style, stating that his best writing comes from "freewriting. When asked for the source of his story ideas in interviews, however, he has several times, including the appearance on Amazon.
He is known for his great eye for detail, for continuity and for inside references; many stories that may seem unrelated are often linked by secondary characters, fictional towns, or off-hand references to events in previous books. These references are generally spun into the stories of characters, often explaining their fears. Recurrent references include crime, war especially the Vietnam War , violence, the supernatural and racism.
King is also known for his folksy, informal narration, often referring to his fans as "Constant Readers" or "friends and neighbors. King has a very simple formula for learning to write well: He also has a simple definition for talent in writing: He then continues this process until the novel is finished.
When asked why he writes, King responds: I was made to write stories and I love to write stories. See also List of fictional books in the works of Stephen King for a complete list. Influences King has called Richard Matheson "the author who influenced me most as a writer. Lovecraft and refers to him several times in " Danse Macabre ". There are also several examples of King referring to Lovecraftian characters in his work, such as Nyarlathotep and Yog-Sothoth.
King has also openly declared his admiration for another, less prolific author: King is a big fan of John D. King makes references in several of his books to characters and events in J. Collaborations King has written two novels with acclaimed horror novelist Peter Straub: King has indicated that he and Straub will likely write the third and concluding book in this series, the tale of Jack Sawyer, but has set no time line for its completion.
In King collaborated with Michael Jackson to create " Ghosts ", a long and expensive musical video. The book was published under anonymous authorship, and written by Ridley Pearson. This spin-off is a rare occasion of another author being granted permission to write commercial work using characters and story elements invented by King.
Speculation that King wrote the novel " Bad Twin ", a tie-in to the series " Lost ", under the pseudonym Gary Troup has been discredited. This theory was fueled by King being an avid and self-declared Lost fan, having mentioned it and praised it several times in his Entertainment Weekly articles. King played guitar for the rock band Rock Bottom Remainders , several of whose members are authors.
None of them claim to have any musical talent. He is also a fan of The Ramones , who wrote the title song for " Pet Sematary " and appeared in the music video. They are referred to several times in various novels and stories. The single released for radio play featured a narrative intro spoken by King. He has contrasted his books and its film adaptations as " apples and oranges ; both delicious, but very different.
Kubrick had described the original novel in an interview as not "literary," having its merits exclusively in the plot. This understandably may have upset King. His first featured role was in "Creepshow", playing Jordy Verrill, a backwoods redneck who, after touching a fallen meteor in hopes of selling it, grows moss all over his body.
He has since made cameos in several adaptations of his works. In addition to acting, King tried his hand at directing with " Maximum Overdrive ", in which he also made a cameo appearance as a man using an ATM that is on the fritz.
King produced and acted in a miniseries, " Kingdom Hospital ", which is based on the Danish miniseries " Riget " by Lars von Trier. King is friends with film director George Romero , to whom he partly dedicated his book " Cell ", and wrote a tribute about the filmmaker in " Entertainment Weekly " for his pop culture column, as well as an essay for the Elite DVD version of " Night of the Living Dead ".
