It seems authors in their golden years tend to lose focus when it comes to their writing, so it's been wonderful following Stephen King's later career and watching as he continues to improve his storytelling magic. First 11/22/63 turned out to be a wonderful book, and now The Wind Through the Keyhole, tagged as a Dark Tower novel but easily read without pre-reading the first four books in that series, arrives as an insightful meditation on life, forgiveness, and the transient nature of existence. The Skin-Man portion of the novel is engaging and works as a short story as well as adding just a touch of depth to Roland's story. The second short story is a modern fairy tale that reminded me of the darkness of the fables of yore before they were Disneyfied. It's full of wonder and pathos and works well as a standalone story. Even if you found the last three or four novels of the Dark Tower series disappointing, if you're a fan of Stephen King's writing, I'd highly recommend giving this a read.
