KING'S 5TH DARK TOWER OUT NOW
The long-awaited fifth novel in Stephen King's DARK TOWER series arrives in hardcover in bookstores today. WOLVES OF THE CALLA reunites readers with Roland the Gunslinger and his troupe of four comrades as they make their way ever toward the Dark Tower for their showdown with the Crimson King. At stake are entire worlds, if not all of reality.
In WOLVES OF THE CALLA, King continues to connect the dots between his other stand-alone novels and the Dark Tower, further proving that all of his stories are interconnected. Roland and his friends find themselves called to the farming community of Calla Bryn Sturgis, a town where all the women give birth to twins...and every twenty years, a group of frightening beings come into the town and take one twin away from the parents, only to return and present the child in a horrifying condition. This time, as Calla prepares for the visitation of the 'Wolves', the town's leader asks the Gunslinger for assistance in protecting the innocent. What Roland doesn't realize is that Calla's problem is connected to events unfolding in our world, specifically for a New York City land owner who is being pressured by petty criminals to sell off a lot of vacant land he owns...and where a rose that connects our world to the Dark Tower, and thus our world's very existance, grows.
And for fans of King's early vampire novel 'SALEM'S LOT, there's a highly surprising connection at play in WOLVES OF THE CALLA. To say more would ruin the surprise...
Featuring illustrations by Bernie Wrightson, Stephen King's WOLVES OF THE CALLA retails for $35.00 and is now for sale in bookstores.
