I thought maybe, jsut maybe, Ka Is A Wheel referred to a new book coming out or perhaps the new comic book series based on the Gunslinger. It appears it was about a video game.

Robin Furth is the director of the game, which makes it a hopeful offering since she wrote the Stephen King companion. In other words -- she'll get the details right! And when it comes to the Dark Tower, there's a lot of details to keep up with!.

How about a Dark Tower book that opens, "Let's just pretend the last 20 pages of Dark Tower 7 never happened. . ."
