When King was two years old, his father left the family under the pretense of "going to buy a pack of cigarettes," leaving his mother to raise King and his adopted older brother David by herself, sometimes under great financial strain. When King was eleven years old, the family returned to Durham, Maine, where Ruth King cared for her parents until their deaths. She then became a caregiver in a local residential facility for the mentally challenged. As a child, King apparently witnessed one of his friends being struck and killed by a train, though he has no memory of the event.
His family told him that after leaving home to play with the boy, King returned, speechless and seemingly in shock. Only later did the family learn of the friend's death. Some commentators have suggested that this event may have psychologically inspired some of King's darker works, but King himself has dismissed the idea.
Les Tommyknockers 3
King's primary inspiration for writing horror fiction was related in detail in his non-fiction Danse Macabre , in a chapter titled "An Annoying Autobiographical Pause". King makes a comparison of his uncle successfully dowsing for water using the bough of an apple branch with the sudden realization of what he wanted to do for a living. While browsing through an attic with his elder brother, King uncovered a paperback version of an H.
Lovecraft collection of short stories that had belonged to his father. The cover art He displayed an early interest in horror as an avid reader of EC's horror comics, including Tales from the Crypt he later paid tribute to the comics in his screenplay for Creepshow.
He began writing for fun while still in school, contributing articles to Dave's Rag , the newspaper that his brother published with a mimeograph machine and later began selling stories to his friends which were based on movies he had seen though when discovered by his teachers, he was forced to return the profits. The first of his stories to be independently published was "I Was a Teenage Grave Robber", serialized over three published and one unpublished issue of a fanzine, Comics Review , in That story was published the following year in a revised form as "In a Half-World of Terror" in another fanzine, Stories of Suspense , edited by Marv Wolfman.
That same year his first daughter, Naomi Rachel, was born. He wrote a column for the student newspaper, The Maine Campus , titled "Steve King's Garbage Truck", took part in a writing workshop organized by Burton Hatlen, and took odd jobs to pay for his studies, including one at an industrial laundry. After leaving the university, King earned a certificate to teach high school but, being unable to find a teaching post immediately, initially supplemented his laboring wage by selling short stories to men's magazines such as Cavalier.
Many of these early stories have been published in the collection Night Shift. He continued to contribute short stories to magazines and worked on ideas for novels. It was during this time that King developed a drinking problem, which stayed with him for more than a decade.
In , Joseph Hillstrom, his second child was born. King actually threw an early draft of the novel in the trash after becoming discouraged with his progress writing about a teenage girl with psychic powers. His wife retrieved the manuscript and encouraged him to finish it. King and his family relocated to southern Maine because of his mother's failing health.
At this time, he began writing a book titled Second Coming , later titled Jerusalem's Lot , before finally changing the title to Salem's Lot published Soon after the release of Carrie in , his mother died of uterine cancer. His Aunt Emrine read the novel to her before she died.
King has written of his severe drinking problem at this time, stating that he was drunk delivering the eulogy at his mother's funeral. After his mother's death, King and his family had moved to Boulder, Colorado, where King wrote The Shining published The family returned to western Maine in , where King completed his fourth novel, The Stand published In , the family, with the addition of Owen Phillip his third and last child , traveled briefly to England, returning to Maine that fall where King began teaching creative writing at the University of Maine.

Ferman, beginning in and the last in The Gunslinger would be continued as a large 7-book epic called The Dark Tower, which would be written and published infrequently over four decades, from the s to the s. In , the fantasy small-press Donald M. Grant known for publishing the entire canon of Robert E. Howard printed these stories for the first time together in hardcover form with color and black-and-white illustrations by then up-and-coming fantasy artist Michael Whelan, as The Gunslinger.
Each chapter was named for the story previously published in magazine form. The original print-run was only 10, copies, which was, by this time, a comparatively low run for a first printing of a King novel in hardcover. His novel, Firestarter , had an initial print-run in trade hardcover at , copies, and his novel, Christine , had a trade hardcover print-run of , copies, both by the much larger publisher Viking.
The Gunslinger' s initial release was not highly publicized, and only specialty science-fiction and related bookstores carried it on their shelves. The book was generally not available in the larger chain stores, except by special order. Rumors spread among avid fans that there was a King book out that few readers knew about, let alone had actually read. When the initial 10, copies sold out, Grant printed another 10, copies in , but these runs were still far short of the growing demand among fans for this book.
The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger was the beginning of his magnum opus fantasy epic. Both the first and second printings of The Gunslinger garner premium prices on the collectible book market, notably among avid readers and collectors of Stephen King, horror literature, fantasy literature, and even American western literature. And it is also desirable among avid fans of the artwork of Michael Whelan. In , King released the second installment, The Drawing of the Three , in which Roland draws three people from 20th-century United States into his world through magical doors.

It , published in , had an initial print-run of 1,, copies, King's largest to date. King had believed that the Dark Tower books would only be of interest to a select group of his fans, and he had resisted releasing it on a larger scale. Finally, in the late s, bowing to pressure from his publishers and fans who were hungry for the books at this point fewer than 50, of his millions of readers would have been able to own any of the Dark Tower books , King agreed to release The Gunslinger and all subsequent Dark Tower books in trade paperback and mass market formats.
The series reached seven books, with the final installment called The Dark Tower , in In the early s King revised the original book, The Gunslinger , because he felt the voice and imagery of the original stories of the late s did not seem to fit the voice of the final installment of King felt the style of the work had markedly changed during the intervening 27 years.
The revised version was published in by his former hardcover publisher Viking. Grant published its hardcover limited edition of the revised version of The Gunslinger along with a prequel story set in the Dark Tower world called "The Little Sisters of Eluria" from King's short story collection Everything's Eventual in King stated it will take place between the fourth and fifth installments.
The work had sold over , copies by March The success of The Gunslinger Born led to a ongoing series of miniseries published by Marvel, with Furth and David continuing to collaborate, featuring both adapted material from the Dark Tower books and new material approved by King; it also led to a second series of King adaptations in the same format, serializing the events of The Stand.
