Stephen King, The Gunslinger, The Drawing of the Three, The Waste Lands

I read these six or seven years ago and was left with absolutely no memory of them whatsoever, more so than usual. I didn't want to reread them until they were all published, and now that time has come, and now I've been through my Eliot obsession, and this time round they kept my mind cheerfully ticking over during a busy December, and I'm keen to lay hands on the rest. Aeroplane reading, I think.

Still not The Stand, though.

Should there have been a "no" before "memory"?

I gave up on Stephen King after reading The Tommyknockers, where what could have been a good story of 250 pages or so was dragged out to double the length.

Thanks, I'll fix that.

That's a big problem with King, that readers will pay for more pages than the story in fact needs. His short stories, novellas, and shorter novels are usually a lot better. The Stand being an exception.
