The Dark Tower is a fantasy fiction, research fantasy, horror, and western themed series of novels by the American author Stephen King. The series has been described as King's magnum opus - besides the 7 novels that include the series right, various of his different books are associated to the story, introducing concepts and characters that come into play as the series progresses. The series has been lately adapted for a Marvel miniseries spin-off, created by King and illustrated by Jae Lee.

The series was inspired by the poem "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" by Robert Browning, The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot and in the preface to the 2003 edition of The Gunslinger, King equally identifies The Lord of the Rings and The Great, the Bad, and the Ugly as inspirations, identifying Clint Eastwood's "Man with No Name" character as the genesis of Roland of Gilead.

The central character, Roland, is the last living member of the knightly purchase termed as gunslingers. The planet he lives in is very different from our own but has freakish similarities. Politically organized along the lines of the feudal society, it shares technological and social characteristics with all the American Old West, in addition to magical powers and relics of the very advanced, but lengthy vanished, society. Roland's quest, his raison d'être, is to obtain the Dark Tower, a mythical building mentioned to become the nexus of the universe. Roland's globe is mentioned to have "moved on", and indeed it appears to be coming apart at the seams - mighty countries are being torn apart by war, whole cities and parts disappear within the face of the world without a trace, and even the Sun often rises in the north and sets in the east. As the series opens, Roland's motives, goals, and even his age are unclear, though occasions in later instalments shed light on these mysteries.

In several techniques, this series is viewed as King's statement of the globe he portrays in various of his alternative novels. Terminology like Ka-tet and the Tower itself appear in alternative novels (principally Insomnia), Can-toi is reported in Desperation, and the theme of the thin globe with outside beings looking to enter and rule it, is an up-to-date variation of the synonymous theme that Lovecraft built his mythos upon.
