I first read The Dark Tower series sometime around 2010. This was my first exposure to Stephen King’s writing (having previously dismissed him as a writer of pulp horror books – an opinion which has since dramatically changed!) The Dark Tower, however, very much appealed to me and I was hooked on this series straight away.
Having seen various attempts on the internet to map Mid-World and finding all these often inconsistent with the written word (there is only so much special pleading you can do by saying “the world has moved on”) I have spent much time pondering over maps of what I think Mid-World looks like, and the paths our journeyers take throughout Mid-World and the various incarnations of America they visit, and the time sequence of events along the way.
Here I hope to share some of these thoughts with the wider Dark Tower Community.
