Oubliez l’adaptation ciné, c’est annulé (quoique Ron Howard veut toujours le faire, il cherche un studio). On va parler ici des livres.

On le savait déjà, Stephen King avait l’intention d’écrire encore une nouvelle pour compléter son cycle de La Tour Sombre. Hé bien, il a fini !
Ce nouvel épisode sortira au printemps 2012 en VO, s’intercalera entre les tomes 4 et 5, et s’intitule The Wind through the Keyhole (littéralement, Le Vent à travers la Serrure).

Bien sûr, nous avons un synopsis.

For readers new to The Dark Tower, THE WIND THROUGH THE KEYHOLE is a stand-alone novel, and a wonderful introduction to the series. It is a story within a story, which features both the younger and older gunslinger Roland on his quest to find the Dark Tower. Fans of the existing seven books in the series will also delight in discovering what happened to Roland and his ka tet between the time they leave the Emerald City and arrive at the outskirts of Calla Bryn Sturgis.

This Russian Doll of a novel, a story within a story, within a story, visits Mid-World’s last gunslinger, Roland Deschain, and his ka-tet as a ferocious storm halts their progress along the Path of the Beam. (The novel can be placed between Dark Tower IV and Dark Tower V.) Roland tells a tale from his early days as a gunslinger, in the guilt ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape shifter, a “skin man,” Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter. Roland, himself only a teenager, calms the boy by reciting a story from the Book of Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, “The Wind through the Keyhole.” “A person’s never too old for stories,” he says to Bill. “Man and boy, girl and woman, we live for them.” And stories like these, they live for us.

Le groupe s’arrête donc entre la Cité d’Émeraude et Calla Bryn Sturgis.
Roland raconte alors ce qui lui est arrivé dans sa jeunesse, quand il a été envoyé sur les traces d’un assassin changeur de forme.

Bref, à attendre ^^
