Robin Furth was born and raised in Philadelphia, and attended the University of Pennsylvania. While enrolled in the Ph.D. program at the University of Maine, she was introduced to Stephen King, who needed a research assistant. She has been working with King for more than five years and is now busy writing storylines and folktales for Marvel's forthcoming Dark Tower comic book series. She divides her time between Maine, the south of England, and Mid-World.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. :
From Stephen King's Foreword:
"Her Concordance was never meant to be published; it was created solely as a writer's tool. But, even with most of my mind preoccupied by the writing of my tale, I was aware of how good it was, how interesting and readable it was. I also became aware, as time passed and the actual publication of the final three volumes grew closer, of how valuable it might be to the Constant Reader... In any case, it was Robin Furth who inventoried the goods I had on sale, and replaced all the dim overhead lights so I could see everything clearly and find my way from Housewares to Appliances without getting lost...or from Gilead to Calla Bryn Sturgis, if you prefer. That in no way makes her responsible for my errors--of which I'm sure there are many--but it is important that she receive credit for all the good work she has done on my behalf. I found this overview of In-World, Mid-World, and End-World both entertaining and invaluable. So, I am convinced, will you."
From Robin Furth's Introduction:
"For over two years I have lived in Roland's world--occasionally surfacing in ours--and during that time I've collected much of the myth, history, and folklore of Mid-World. Just as, when you wake up from a dream, you try to capture what you saw during your night travels, the book that follows is my attempt to capture my journey with Roland. My goal, when I started, was to make a doorway between worlds. I hope that I have, at least, made a small window."
