Okay, now that we've gotten that out of the way... You probably only know about The Dark Tower if you're that kind of nerd. You know, a book nerd. I say that because yes, it is Stephen King, but not his normal bloody-scare-the-pants-off-of-you horror fare. I know about it because I am that kind of nerd, you see.
