1865 I agree with not being able to avoid author's who are more popular being chosen over less popular author's. I think that is just going to be common, people have heard a name over and over and are curious to test out that author. That is what happens for myself at least.
I kinda like how the system is right now myself. I think the random generator can bring up authors (popular or not) whose book we might never have even thought about mentioning. So that is why I like the random generator, and having 1 theme a month.

1865 I would try to read it again.... didn't it first come out in 1978? If that is the last time you tried to read it go ahead and give it another try.

I read this about the 2003 edition:

n 2003, King revised The Gunslinger. As stated in the new introduction, King felt it was necessary for many reasons. First, he felt the first book was 'dry' and hard to get into for new readers. He also revised it to make it more linear with the series' ending. The added material was about 9000 words (35 pages).

So the 2003 edition is probably better for people new to the series.

1865 I have always loved the first line of the book:

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed."

1865 I am reading the original, only because it is the one I own. I know my mom bought the newer and felt she did get more information out of it.

1865 Well there is a little book section, but the group is more based off movies. You are of course welcome to chat about the book also which might lead to a more interesting discussion!

1865 Hey! I thought I would let people know about a new group I am a mod of, Science Fiction Films. I thought there might be some people from our book club who might want to discuss films as well. We also pick a movie each month to discuss as a group, November will be Primer. So if you are interested in movies that are Science Fiction come give some of your opinions:

1865 I still really enjoy heroes. I think possibly there may be too many characters. It looks like this week's entertainment weekly is dedicated to saving hereos, though I still don't think it needs savings. Check out this article on it:,,20235...

I am enjoying Fringe I am glad something different is on TV.

1865 I think this is under the wrong thread.... maybe move this to member's chat? or under author's books?
1865 Should there be an order to reading them? Or can you read them in any order?

1865 I have read the Gunslinger and loved it. I voted for it because I thought it might be fun to read it with a group and see what others have to say about it. I do agree that the last couple books weren't as good as the first books but still a great series.
1865 I read the second book and liked it enough to read the whole series. Turns out there are a lot of books! Looks like 20 books!
