:'( I'm living in Jake's universe! (Non-Keystone!) My copy is by "Beryl Evans"!!! :( Well, at least I'm not in Roland's world yet...! In which case my copy would be by "Claudia y Inez Bachman"... So I guess that's something to be thankful for! :) But I wanna live in the Keystone Universe!!!! :'( Aside from these things, the book is EVERYTHING I expected. ;) The illustrations are wonderful, as they were done by the same gentleman who did the artwork & the original "Charlie the Choo Choo" illustrations in Book 3 of The Dark Tower, "The Waste Lands"! :) So it's like a "found artifact" from the series actually existing alongside your series novels on your bookshelf! :) I hope that Sai King gets around to publishing some of the other reading material from The Dark Tower series! :) Well worth the $$$! :D
