Stephen King is no stranger to the realm of literary criticism, but his most fantastic, far-reaching work has aroused little academic scrutiny. This study of King's epic Dark Tower series encompasses the career of one of the world's best-selling authors and frames him as more than a "horror writer." Four categories of analysis--genre, art, evil, and intertextuality--provide a focused look at the center of King's fictional universe. This book reaches beyond popular culture treatments of the series and examines it against King's horror work, audience expectations, and the larger literary landscape.

About the Author:

Patrick McAleer is a Ph.D. candidate at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He co-chairs the Stephen King area of the annual National Popular Culture Association Conference and has published numerous articles on King's work.

Review:

"I was endlessly engaged with McAleer’s in-depth study of King’s work. He offers a well-reasoned, detailed analysis.... He shines a critical light on an area of speculative fiction that might otherwise remain ignored by mainstream scholars. He brings welcome validation to an author who has forever influenced popular culture."--Fanboy Comics.
