    J.R.R. Tolkien: The Children Of Hurin

    Yes I agree if you collect these books it's totally a must have, I have several copies of the Silmarillion but the most beautiful illustrations in the Ted Nasmith version make a must even though I've obviously read it already.

    Stephen King: The Dark Tower Series

    Actually From a Buick 8 isalso listed in the Dark Tower VII as having a connection to the Gunslinger series and since the author considers there to be a connection perhaps you missed the link.

    While you don't need to read any other SK books in order to enjoy the Dark Tower series (in fact I started to read SK all the time after I first read The Drawing of the Three). There however is a connection between the Dark Tower series and much of his writings. The Gunslinger -Bag of Bones...

    Jon Shannow and Roland Deschain

    I'm just wondering if anyone has ever noticed the similarities between their stories. Not that David Gemmel ripped off Stephen King, but that both may have been inspired by the same Browning poem. Even though I could not find any info on Gemmel story's connection to the poem. I can't remember...
