New Dark Tower editions, Kingdom Hospital production

Posted: June 11, 2003, 00:00
Yesterday I received some copies of the new editions of the first four Dark Tower books. After looking through them I can now confirm the following:

* The introduction is the same in all four books.

* Wizard and Glass (only the trade paperback though) have a part from Wolves of the Calla at the back. It's called Roont and is almost the same as the prologue that is on King's site. The difference is that some rewriting seams to have been done. The first sentence in the prologue on King's site goes:

Tian was blessed (although few farmers would use such a word) with three patches

and the one in Wizard and Glass like this:

Tian was blessed (though few farmers would used such a word) with three patches

Nothing major but no less some changes.

* All books has gotten now subtitles:

The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger - Resumption
The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three - Renewal
The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands - Redemption
The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass - Regard

Production of Kingdom Hospital is set to begin on August 11 in Vancouver, Canada.
