Dark Tower Reread/Discussion?
March 2, 2016 11:00 AM - Subscribe

Individual posts for each book with spoilers allowed for the whole series, punching bags passed out for everything past Wizard and Glass?

In light of the news that the movie might _actually_ happen, and the fact that the fpp veered right into spoilertown, any interest in discussing this in depth here?

God, yes.

I'm primarily on mobile, and so can't contribute as much as I would like, but oh my jesus I would love to see this discussion.

Yes yes yes yes yes. Especially yes for the punching bags.

Books are still hobbling their way out of development but I would be absolutely happy to give someone books-posting permissions if they want to do a Dark Tower reread book club thing, yeah.

I have no idea how FanFare works but I'll monitor and chime in once I see what this, or Books (which is a thing?), stuff is all about 'lest I overstep or trod upon folks toes unnecessarily.

I try to remember the face of my father and all that.

I'll volunteer. And sorry Cortex- that's weird, I thought they were fully up and running, since I saw a few happening. But maybe those were technically Clubs?
posted by Dormant Gorilla at 11:29 AM on March 2, 2016

No, it's a weird thing, no worries for being surprised. We haven't thrown the doors wide on generalized book posting because we're still working out some details, but I have a few folks access to the "book" option on the posting form so they could help us start experimenting with book club stuff. So this'd be another great candidate on that front, and I'm happy to flip that switch for whoever wants to tackle it.

And yeah, probably the best form for this would be to set up e.g. Dark Tower Club, which can be the specific organizational nexus for various book posts in an organized reread, and which (because Clubs aren't media-specific) could also host threads for the eventual movie releases etc.

Yeah, I would be down for this. And totally up for helping coordinate/post/whatever, if needed.

Thankee-sai, cortex. We shall form our ka-tet at the Dark Tower Club.
posted by nubs at 12:01 PM on March 2, 2016

On Cortex's rec, have created a Club to continue discussing this and sort out a Books thread.
posted by Dormant Gorilla at 12:46 PM on March 2, 2016

And through the magic of tagging, I have made this post a Club post retroactively! Anything with "darktower_club" as a tag will show up as a post on the main Club page.

I've gone ahead and gotten book-posting permissions set up for Dormant Gorilla for when actual discussion posts are gonna go up, and as a reading schedule (however partial/tentative) gets set up, DG or any other member of the club can add a little event to the club calendar to signpost it. (The calendar does very little at this point, no automated reminders or threads being auto-created, so it's just a shared post-it basically.)

So this is the meta-'how we want to handle this club's future' thread?

posted by Dormant Gorilla at 2:04 PM on March 2, 2016

I think that's right RolandOfEld (gonna have to watch how we use your username in these discussions :). This thread will be where we set up our schedule for the re-read, etc. What are we thinking? A month per book? The Gunslinger was pretty short, maybe we could open discussion in a couple of weeks and then the next book a month later? Or do we want to go faster? Can I end more sentences with question marks?
posted by nubs at 2:14 PM on March 2, 2016

A month per book may be too slow- it probably comes down to how many people join, and how many want to have a discussion (fast) vs a full reread (slower).
posted by Dormant Gorilla at 2:20 PM on March 2, 2016

I guess I've been assuming a re-read, given that my memory of many things about the series has become hazy.
posted by nubs at 2:29 PM on March 2, 2016

Fair concern re:username. Folks on mefightclub have used RoE in the past. Feel free to do the same if it'll help.

I think something that bears considering is the comics and how they also align to various books (despite their publishing being in Mid-World chronological order [i.e. Wizard as first book]) and if we want to include them into any of our considerations.

For those that don't have the comics.... Uh, talk to me?
posted by RolandOfEld at 3:16 PM on March 2, 2016

I'm in, and will be re-reading.

Monthly seems about right to me. Could probably manage fortnightly, but I think it'd feel a bit rushed, especially as the later books bloat out a bit.
posted by We had a deal, Kyle at 5:01 PM on March 2, 2016

Another option is to do what it looks like happened with the Dune books - just throw the thread open and we come in and discuss as we are re-reading.
posted by nubs at 7:29 PM on March 2, 2016

I'm game for whatever. I've been on an audiobook kick but can basically pickup, flip to any page, and read any DT book (Song of Susannah and Keyhole excepted somewhat) or any book with close ties to DT (Insomnia [it's actually very good], It, The Stand, Hearts in Atlantis, Talisman books, Eyes of the Dragon, and a few others).

So, honestly, the difficult part for me is going to be making it a point to not do that and read/consume them properly.
posted by RolandOfEld at 7:59 PM on March 2, 2016 [1 favorite]

We could also attempt to do a chapter a day (or even a chapter a week if we'd really like to drag this out [it'd keep us occupied until the movie comes out]). We could really focus on details that way.
posted by MsVader at 5:46 AM on March 3, 2016

So, questions as I see them:

0) Do we wane someone to be the dinh of this ka-tet? I'm not nominating myself at all but, if we keep it simple, am open to the idea. I'm also ok with anyone else taking the reigns and riding with them. Whatever gets us the most buy-in and preserves our momentum best is what we should do. Perhaps even a rotation on a per-book or per-month basis?

1) How do we handle spoilers? Are we assuming that other club members are well-read in the DT sphere and SK in general? There's a lot to be discovered in the SK solar system, where DT is the Jupiter (as I think I recall SK putting it once), and the discovery is much of the fun.

2) What sort of pacing do we want? I think we could start out with a tentative pace that can be adapted later based upon the activity level of the folks reading and actively discussing things. Open discourse will help a ton here.

3a) Where do we want to start? Sequential order vs chronological order. The former is the more obvious choice, to me, but if folks REALLY want to shake things up the we could consider the latter, if we do that then I think the comics would play nicely into things since they start at Wizard and Glass and go forward from there, as well as fill in cracks in the lore along the way. Ditto for ancillary books like Talisman, Insomnia, The Mist, etc as well of course.

3b) Revised or Original book 1? *shrug*

You really ought to be the dinh just for the eponysterical aspect, RolandOfEld.

Is the original book 1 even still available? I can't find that or the original cut of the Stand for the life of me.
posted by dogheart at 9:43 AM on March 3, 2016

Also I do not have the comics, which is probably a sad oversight on my part.
posted by dogheart at 9:47 AM on March 3, 2016

Is the original book 1 even still available?

Alongside my hard (and in some cases autographed) copies, I have electronic copies of all the books, including (I'm pretty sure) pre-revision book 1. Ditto for the comics.

or the original cut of the Stand

I have an OG paperback copy of the Uncut version of The Stand, it's as big as a phonebook... bigger in some dimensions. I'm not sure if I have an electronic copy of the same.

Also I do not have the comics, which is probably a sad oversight on my part.

I mean, they're really well done, in my opinion at least. But many may not even know they exist so no harm, no foul. Anyway,

...something something academic discussion something sharing memail something...
posted by RolandOfEld at 10:24 AM on March 3, 2016

And to be honest, there's probably not a whole lot to be gained by diving into the rabbit hole of revised vs OG book 1 as an explicit point of order. We can just talk about it as we go and let bygons be bygons.

The comics were great, and well worth your time. The art alone makes them awesome.

Isanove did a great job on the coloring for them as well.

My fav DT artist is, without a doubt, found in Book 1 and Book 7 [and Legends, but who is counting] which were done by Michael Whelan. It's fucking beautiful.

On your questions, RoE:

0) Roland, if you are not our Dinh, you are definitely Ka-Me on this journey. Full props to Dormant Monkey for getting this ball rolling, and whatever works from here is good in my eyes. The actual act of posting the discussion thread & who does so is not a big deal, in my eyes. It will be the Khef that is important. I am happy to be bondsman and do whatever needs doing

1) If we are positioning this as a re-read, I think we have to accept spoilers as part of the DT series proper; but as for the tie-ins to other pieces of the SK universe, I don't know. I'm pretty well read on SK and I would love our discussion to include those connections and references, but I know there are people out there who have only read the DT. I personally think we can't have a full discussion of the DT without incorporating the other works that connect, however.

2) I am down for whatever works in terms of how we frame the discussion (whole book/chapters/sections), and it seems that determining that and our schedule is the pressing question, and we likely need someone to grab the reigns and start us moving in terms of just making a decision and going with it, lest we palaver too long. It might be we modify our decisions on how we post and when we post as we learn by doing.

3a) I think I prefer if we go with sequential order; the flashbacks and the odd effects they create are neat (the Gunslinger opens with Roland having a flashback in which he has another flashback), so that is my vote.

3b) I started re-reading the Gunslinger last night, and flipped ahead in a few places, and learned I have the original version. I don't think it is a big deal for our purposes; there is a wikia page that details the differences (I admit to getting confused about some of the name changes - Allen/Alain).

Let's get this show on the road. Ka, like a wheel, must turn.

Everyone start grabbing your books. First up is The Gunslinger, either version.

If someone hasn't created a Club Talk Post by tomorrow morning (USA Eastern Time) then I will do it and we can start chiming in with thoughts as we approach Tull. That gives folks this evening to voice opinions and thoughts before we solidify things a bit more in there.

This thread continues to be our meta/policy discussion thread. Anything goes in here and maybe let's keep anything news related, filming and the like, in here as well and out of the dedicated book threads.

Everyone begin the read at your own pace and we can see how things shape up in there once that thread is going... The Gunslinger is probably the most forgiving of the books with regards to length and pacing so that'll actually help folks out a bit as well.

Let's put the comics thing, amazing though they are, on a hiatus lest we spread ourselves too thin and lose focus.

Let's make the spoiler policy, roughly and tentativly, such that any discussion on the 8 books of the true Dark Tower canon is fair game. Discussion that incorporates anything from non DT books must be preceded by a spoiler warning. BUT, until we get a feel for if we have anyone that's 100% new to the series feel free to only discuss the lower-numbered pages lest we ruin later/big things for someone, unlikely though it may be.

Memail me if you have any problems or need any help, I'm glad to do what I can, *wink*.
posted by RolandOfEld at 11:05 AM on March 3, 2016

My vote is for "reread with spoilers allowed for the entire SK universe" -- I liked the interconnectedness, myself. And like nubs says, pretty much impossible to avoid touching on events and characters from other books when the series is deliberately bringing them into play.

I think RoE's guideline above of "give a spoiler warning for anything outside the DT itself" is a good middle ground.

Got my hold in at the library!

I posted a note about this over on mefightclub to see if anyone over there might be interested in taking part. The more the merrier I think.
posted by RolandOfEld at 12:25 PM on March 3, 2016

I totally agree that a reread with all main series spoilers fair game might be the best way to go- it makes for a much more interesting and in depth conversation, and I think things would feel artificially constrained otherwise. I've seen some other fanfare threads kind of hit walls and fizzle out when they're discussing parts of a series without being able to talk about it as a whole. And even though people may certainly have forgotten some stuff, I'd think MOST people who'd want to participate will have read them all at some point?

As for who handles the book posts, since Books is in beta I might be the only one who can post them- Cortex, is that the case? If it's not, it would be awesome for us to just rotate. But if it is, I can promise to post on whatever schedule everyone decides on, and if someone had something they really wanted to get into the post description they could memail me and I'd include it with attribution.

Personal aside, from like 1996-1999 I was an admin on one of the more well known (read, infamous) DT message boards, before it imploded spectacularly, so this will be one hell of a nostalgia trip for me on several levels.
posted by Dormant Gorilla at 12:38 PM on March 3, 2016 [2 favorites]

That's the case at the moment, but I don't mind hooking other folks up as well if it's easier logistically than sticking all the thread-starting on you. Remains experimental, so I'm okay with experimenting!
posted by cortex at 12:56 PM on March 3, 2016

So, yea, that resume works for me because I have zero fanfare experience (both on the user and the admin/boss side of things) as well as for the reason that all mefites may not be able to flip the bits that cortex set you up with.

Dormant Gorilla it is! I'll try not to suck up too much air in the room and I'm glad to have someone as knowledgeable as you around. I lurked on many of those forums, mostly around the time DT 4, 5, 6, and to a lesser degree, 7 were coming out but never dove in too deeply lest the fun of reading for the sake of reading become lost in facts and nuance. I'm ready for some nuance!

On preview: cortex, just tell us what you wanna do mah man.
posted by RolandOfEld at 12:58 PM on March 3, 2016

My suggestion, if I get to be lazy, is that DG just be the point person for making the book posts for now for Dark Tower Club, and folks can collaborate on the text of those or not however they see fit, and we'll see how that goes and go from there! In a pinch, a clusterfuck can always be resolved by just poking me or any other mod, so let's not worry too much up front.

Aw damn. I was trying to subtly weasel my way out of any set responsibilities.
But nah, happy to do it. You guys just let me know when you want to kick it off. Say monthly posts as a general rule, but if three weeks or something go by and the thread is collectively like yeah, this is in fact all we want to say about Wolves of the Calla, we can just move on.

Maybe we should give it a day or so for mefighters (such a good idea, inviting them) and any others to join?
posted by Dormant Gorilla at 1:09 PM on March 3, 2016

We've got momentum. We also don't want to leave folks at the starting line. I dunno what is best. What's the fanfare norms in cases like this? Whatever works, let's do that.

Time is, after all, a face on the water.
posted by RolandOfEld at 1:20 PM on March 3, 2016

I'm just worried that doing a book a month will feel rushed. Or maybe it's just the idea of one post per book. There's so much detail in this story, so much that we can unpack and dissect and discuss, that we'll lose a lot of it in a book-level discussion. Hell, my memory sucks these days - I'll be lucky if I remember something that happened two chapters ago.

So, what I'm saying is, I'd love it if we could find a way to break up the books a bit, make the discussions more focused and manageable. Or do you think this is over-complicating it?

It was more of a general SK consumption for me. I'd say from mid 1990s into early 2000s was my timeframe. I actually started, somehow, at book III of DT but only after having consumed many other SK books prior to that.

But, back to more important things, namely mefi DT equivalencies:

MetaTalk is definitely Discordia.

Oh and Mathowie is in no way my Arthur Eld. But cortex can be the Crimson King and I'm pretty sure that Jessamyn darkles and tincts into Maerlyn from time to time. pb... pb might be Father Callahan.

Ahhh, I'm excited! When I moved I got rid of almost all my books, including the DT books, on the theory that I could always buy new copies of anything I missed. Complicating factor I did not take into account: I was moving to a non-majority-English-speaking country. Whoops. I wound up re-buying the first three books in Dutch, and I'm partway through De Scherpschutter...and let's just say I'm not reading as speedily as I used to. Fortunately, yesterday I went to vote in the Democrats Abroad primary and our polling place just happened to be the local American Bookstore, and as a result, not only did I get a "I voted!" sticker but also a frequent-reader's card and a shiny new set of all the paperbacks in English, so hope is restored that I can keep up with the group readalong.

So- on the one hand if we post the book thread right away it doesn't give people time to reread, and on the other if we don't, this might just fizzle. I'm for tossing it up and seeing what happens- people can contribute as they read, or upfront, whichever- thoughts?

And thanks for the well wishes!

That seems perfectly sensible to me. IIRC Fanfare threads never expire, so people can join in whenever they like. But probably best to just start w/Book I for now?
posted by duffell at 10:59 AM on March 9, 2016

Yeah, I'd say The Gunslinger is (a) a well-known enough read and (b) short enough for a quick catchup that kicking that book off right away to get things rolling seems like a solid move. Get people into having fun discussing the book instead of just discussing the possibility of discussing it, and y'all can figure out future book schedule stuff as we go.

You know... it doesn't feel like there's a lot to say about the first book. Weird, but there's just not much there there. The really interesting stuff in it can't really be discussed till we're done with the last book. Not for spoiler reasons but because it really doesn't make sense to talk about in a vacuum. Series discussion is hard unless you're doing a full-on Tor-style reread. Which would be awesome, but who has the time, unfortunately.

Should we give everyone a month, starting now, to reread Drawing of the Three and schedule the post for it? Pleeenty to talk about from that point on, and in the meantime we can use the currently open thread for general comments (and actual stuff about the first book) and to keep things alive?

Don't tell me the world has moved on already...

Things were so quiet I wasn't sure anybody wanted to palaver anymore.

I'll try to get the Waste Lands up in the next day or so.

Heh; I was in the library yesterday and they had books IV, V and VI on the shelf, but not III. Time to put a hold in.

Anyone ready for the next one?

I am; can't stay dangling on that Blaine cliffhanger forever. I came late to the last thread, will get my hold in at the library now so I can be more timely for this one.

I'll get it up later tonight or tomorrow morning.

I really enjoyed the Wastelands, but found I don't have a lot to say about it. Onwards to Wizard and Glass!

OK, Wizard and Glass is finally up.

I almost made the wait between the books as long as it was in real life.

In keeping with our slow progression: The Wind Through the Keyhole.
