I don't really know how I feel about this... at first I was horrified, because I felt that was a story that we could finish, in infinite ways, for ourselves. I thought that was how King wanted it to be. And I have spent too much time pondering things like "does Roland always draw the same 3"......
(I wanted to name my baby after Roland, but it got shot down)

I wonder who had the initials R.F in Kings life?
King initially cited Donald DeFreeze, primary kidnapper of Patty Hearst, as his inspiration for Flagg. Later, he attributed Flagg to an image of a man walking the roads in cowboy boots, denim jeans, and a jacket, a notion which "came out of nowhere" when he was in college. Flagg's character and the nature of his evil have been the subject of considerable critical attention.

Sorry if this has been brought up already, but I believe that you may be intermingling the titles of "Different Seasons" and "Four Past Midnight", both of which are collections of short stories by King.

I am going to ask my mom, she has a King library and she has read them all multiple times.
I am also a Stephen King fan.
The Dark Tower series is the best thing I have ever read. What an adventure that was........
