The Dark Tower Reading Order

This Dark Tower reading order assembles all of Stephen King’s works that relate to The Dark Tower series directly, though not including many of King’s other works that have smaller ties.

What’s on The Dark Tower Reading Order?

The Dark Tower is a series by Stephen King, and is actually considered the lynch-pin for all of his work. Many elements of King’s books show up in The Dark Tower. However, since there is a multiverse involved, those books are largely ignored in this timeline. This timeline is only about the Dark Tower series, including the books and the comics.

Don’t forget to let us know if you see anything missing or any other errors on the timeline. We love your feedback and are always looking for ways to improve the site. You can do this on our contact page. We read everything that comes in.

Where to Start?

Most would agree you should start with The Gunslinger, the first book in the series. The comics are supplemental. Therefore you should save those until you are more familiar with the books. However, you might enjoy a full, chronological readthrough.

Additionally, if you liked this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, such as our Dune series timeline. Thank you so much for visiting, and we hope you enjoy perusing through the shadowy world of The Dark Tower.
