* FirstInstallmentWins: There's a portion of the fanbase that considers the first book to be the best, particularly the revised edition. The evocative, minimalist narration and ambiguous characters made the world of the Dark Tower feel much grander in scope before we knew what most of it meant. There's also those that believe the Man in Black was at his most effective here.

The older portion of the fanbase can actually remember a time when most or even all of the follow-ups didn't even exist, and waiting for YEARS for the next one, endlessly mulling over the unanswered questions and cliffhanger endings or debating them on primitive internet forums. StarWars-esque debate rages on today over whether the original version or the revised version of the Gunslinger is the better one, corrections in continuity and references to future events notwithstanding.
