Review and Squawk: The Dark Tower by Stephen King

Review and Squawk: The Dark Tower by Stephen King

Bookfessional: Long-Running Series . . . When to Quit?

Bookfessional: Long-Running Series . . . When to Quit?

Bookfessional: When to Quit If you read speculative fiction, then you read at least one long-running series. You have too. It’s inevitable.
