Stephen King's latest novel is actually a story within a story within a story.

Once again, King returns to the world of the Dark Tower novels. While Roland and his ka-tet are sheltering from a storm, Roland tells a story from his past to pass the time. In this story, he and fellow gunslinger, Jamie, travel to a village where the residents are being devoured by a shape-shifter. There young Roland meets a boy who needs protection. Roland tells him a fairy tale about a boy named Tim, who must venture out on his own to seek revenge on the man who murdered his father and abused his mother. In this story, Tim meets a sinister man who is very familiar to fans of the Dark Tower series.

The author himself assures that this book is readable apart from the series. I'm not entirely sure that someone who hasn't read the other books will enjoy it as much. It's a good story but very much a part of the series. If you want to read it as part of the series, it takes place between the events of "Wizard and Glass" and "Wolves of the Calla."
