So I’m pretty sure Mordred is the most horrifying character Stephen King ever wrote (with the possible exception of It). I just read his second long “feeding” scene last night on the bus. The one where he eats a certain prominent character alive. This time I was listening to Velvet Underground’s “Sister Ray”. I was literally squirming in my seat.

I was just on the bus listening to Emperor while reading the part in Dark Tower where Mordred is born, and it was one of the most brutal reading experiences of my life.

Reading Wolves of the Calla if you’ve never read ‘Salem’s Lot must be really weird. Father Callahan is telling the characters about his past and for several chapters it’s just a normal story about an alcoholic priest losing his faith. Then all of a sudden he’s talking about fighting a vampire and Roland is just like *solemn nod*.

Dark Tower update: I have been super creeped out by Charlie the Choo-Choo/Blaine the Mono for hundreds of pages now, and he/it has not even appeared yet. I have never anticipated a fucking train ride which such nervousness in my entire life.

The part in The Waste Lands where Jake reads Charlie the Choo-Choo for the first time is wonderfully unsettling in that very unique King-y way.

Hey, Dark Tower fans: When I finish Wizard and Glass, should I read The Wind Through the Keyhole next? Or should I just read them in publication order and go on to Wolves of the Calla?
