Tom Clancy? Nah, King and Clancy are nothing alike. If you wanna hear Clancy-ish stuff, go read a Dale Brown or Stephen Coonts. (I've never really cared for any of the three.)

I completely agree... I always associated Stephen King with being a rahter trashy, Tom Clancy-like writer, but this series was heavily recommended to me by several people and boy was I wrong. Dark Tower create a modern version of the great fantasy epic, with certain Western elements thrown in, and it both well writeen and imaginative. I heard that books 5,6 and 7 are next on his to do list, and I certainly hope that this is the case.
