'The Dark Tower' Series (1982-2004)

This epic series of books took King many years to write, with the first published in 1982, “The Dark Tower 1: The Gunslinger,” and the last published in 2004. The story tells the tale of Roland Deschain, the Gunslinger, and his quest to kill his rival, the Man in Black. A film was released starring Idris Elba in the lead role, which didn’t do well, but a series is being planned by Amazon Studios.
