The Gunslinger is a novel by American author Stephen King, and is the first volume in the Dark Tower series, which King considers to be his magnum opus.It was first published by Donald M.Grant, Publisher, Inc. as a limited edition in 1982.The story centers upon Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger who has been chasing after his adversary, 'the man in black,' for many years. The novel follows Roland's trek through a vast desert and beyond in search of the man in black. Roland meets several people along his journey, including a boy named Jake Chambers who travels with him part of the way.The novel was inspired by the poem 'Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came' by Robert Browning, which King read as a sophomore at the University of Maine. King explains that he "played with the idea of trying a long romantic novel embodying the feel, if not the exact sense, of the Browning poem".King started writing this novel on a ream of bright green paper that he found at the library.The five parts that constitute the novel were originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.It took King twelve years to finish the novel.In 1988, in America, Plume released it in trade paperback form.See also:rja1026, rja1375, rja1661, rja3261-3 inclusive (Wizard and Glass:Vol IV.), rja3323/9 (Susannah's Song:Vol VI), and also rja3325/9.
