The Face through the Key Hole

Following Stephen King’s remarkable 11 / 22 / 63 the great folks at Hodder and Stoughton have organized a rather surreal competition to celebrate the upcoming Dark Tower novel -

To celebrate the publication of The Wind through the Keyhole, the hotly anticipated new episode in Stephen King’s fantasy series The Dark Tower, we’re inviting you to help make literary history; lucky entrants will have their faces featured on the back of the jacket artwork.

Using mosaic design technologies, thousands of readers’ images will be incorporated in the illustration on the back cover of The Wind through the Keyhole.

One winner will also be selected at random to receive the entire STEPHEN KING backlist published by Hodder in the UK.

For your chance to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, all you have to do is upload your photo via this facebook app

Or click >

We can’t guarantee that everyone’s photo will make it on – but we’ll contact you when the jacket is ready so you can see if your face is featured, and if you’ve been lucky, you can share your pixels of fame with friends and family!

The closing date for entries is 23rd January 2012. Terms and conditions apply, click here for more details.

The Wind through the Keyhole is published in April 2012

This novel adds depth to Roland's character through the way King explains this adventure as if we might be peering through a window of the Dark Tower into Roland's past. The story-in-a-story pulls us briefly away from our familiar ka-tet (just like Wizard and Glass did), and just like Wizard and Glass the embedded story builds on Roland's past causing us to quickly forget our surroundings as we are whisked away into the Starkblast.

Without giving out any spoilers, the Dark Tower fan will appreciate the common elements of this story-in-a-story that are also present in the world of the story teller. Without any doubt, the telling of the Keyhole story from Roland's perspective adds more to Roland than readers have previously encountered. Most enjoyable! I appreciated this addition to the Dark Tower adventure. ... even those who have not read the Dark Tower will enjoy it.
