** ''Song of Susannah'' follows on directly from ''The Wastelands'', and the only thing to take place between ''Song...'' and ''Wolves...'' is ''The Wind Through The Keyhole'', where Roland and his party shelter from a storm and he tells them a story to pass the time. Yet somehow, Jake, who was a pretty normal kid when he arrived into Mid-World in ''Wastelands'', has somehow [[TookALevelInBadass taken a massive number of levels in Badass]] and is a hardened Gunslinger and a crack shot by the very beginning of this book. Somewhat [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] throughout the series, in that Roland's companions are implied to be drawn into his quest because they were born to be Gunslingers.

** Roland himself gets one. He turns out to be a fantastic dancer, and his companions are completely flabbergasted when they see him dance the Commala, as he'd shown absolutely no evidence of this skill before.
