The ZS Roe Vlog
While best known for such novels as Carrie and The Shining (among countless others), Stephen King himself would likely prefer that you remember him for his Dark Tower series. And though the series ended almost a decade ago, King has just released The Wind Through The Keyhole, a new Dark Tower novel … book 4.5, if you will. In this new release, King offers three stories for the price of one—that is, a story within a story within a story. Sound kooky? Well, it may be just that. In today’s instalment in The ZS Roe Vlog, I offer my two cents on this new release.
For newcomers unfamiliar with this project, The ZS Roe Vlog is my place to share the best in storytelling. Every two weeks I’ll recommend a novel, short story, poem, or film, and bring you along to the places in which these stories have particular significance.
So, without further ado, I give you:
The Wind Through The Keyhole tells the story of a gunslinger and his small band of followers who are forced to take shelter during a sudden and deadly storm. While waiting out the storm, the gunslinger tells a story from his youth about how he had been sent to a small town to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter. While in this small town, the teenage gunslinger stumbles upon a young boy who witnessed the shape-shifter’s most recent slaughter. To calm the boy down, the gunslinger tells him the fairy tale of The Wind Through The Keyhole.
The ZS Roe Vlog is something of a passion project–a place for me to share with you my favourite stories from various genres and mediums. It is created and written by me, and often shot by my wife or my sister. That music in the background that totally rocks your world? Yeah, I wrote and recorded that, too. Far out, right? In any event, If you have a comment or question, please leave a response below. Thank you for reading and watching.
