The world's bestselling author returns to his beloved Dark Tower series -- an epic, inspired by The Lord of the Rings, that King initiated over thirty years ago. Now, Scribner and Donald M. Grant Publishers, Inc., present the fifth installment of the series in a handsome edition, complete with twelve full-color illustrations by acclaimed comic book/fantasy artist Bernie Wrightson.

Wolves of the Calla continues the adventures of Roland, the Last Gunslinger and survivor of a civilized world that has "moved on." Roland's quest is ka, an inevitable destiny -- to reach and perhaps save the Dark Tower, which stands at the center of everywhere and everywhen. This pursuit brings Roland, with the three others who've joined his quest to Calla Bryn Sturgis, a town in the shadow of Thunderclap, beyond which lies the Dark Tower. Before advancing, however, they must face the evil wolves of Thunderclap, who threaten to destroy the Calla by abducting its young.

With the recent mainstream success of the Harry Potter books, Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, and The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, serial fantasy is bigger than ever -- and  the exciting, action-packed Wolves of the Calla, delivered in a beautiful, illustrated edition, is sure to be an enormous treat for fans both new and old.
