There is a paperback set that's sold in the UK/Europe that you can order on UK Amazon(or whatever EU country you prefer). You have to order each book individually, though. It came out before The Wind Through the Keyhole, so that one just kinda sits off to the side. Nonetheless, the seven books look great together.

This may be how it is in the US but over in the UK this isn't a problem. My current set of DT is consistent and lines up nicely on my shelf.

My previous set was also a complete set. So if you want a good set you might want to look at ordering from the uk.

Heads up, the UK Publisher Hodder & Stoughton has all 8 Dark Tower novels and the Complete Concordance as a matching set, and on amazon it would actually cost me less to have the H&S set shipped all the way from the UK than it would to preorder this set. That's the 7 main books, Wind Through the Keyhole, AND the concordance, whereas I'm pretty sure this set available for preorder is only the 7 main series novels. I saw the H&S books in person in China and they're beautiful, so if this set doesn't look super beautiful or have SOMETHING better than the H&S set, I'm getting the H&S set instead. The H&S books are all available on amazon.co.uk as well as eBay.

Here are links for books 1-7, WttK, and a copy of the concordance.

They can be published by different companies. The only entire matching set Ive seen is a UK publisher Hodder

[I bought The Dark Tower series in an edition that had a tag for the movie.] (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dark-Tower-Gunslinger-Stephen-King/dp/1444723448) It does reduce an otherwise neat cover, and it is printed, no sticker.

Couple of suggestions:

  • Stephen King: The Dark Tower (series)
  • Derren Brown: Tricks of the Mind
  • Simon Singh: The Simpsons and their Mathematical Secrets
  • Mark Hadden: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
  • J. K. Rowling: Harry Potter
  • Mark Leigh: Pets with Tourette's

    Don't what your interested in, but the above is pretty good all round list.

    The Dark Tower books are an amazing read. Fantasy fiction. 7 books in the series, with an 8^th written latter that is kinda supposed to be in the middle somewhere. It is an addictive read, and yet I haven't finished it yet. I'm not very good at describing books, and I don't want to ruin it at all. So I'm afraid you'll have to look up reviews. But they are brilliant, and I really must finish them!

    Derren Brown is (if you don't know) a British illusionist with an absolutely unbelievable set of skills. He is constantly de-bunking psychics, and magic in general, while at the same time making you believe he is magic (even if you have absolutely no belief in magic at all)! This book explains some of the tricks he does, and how to perform a lot of things. From simple disappearing coins, to insane memory capabilities. Very interesting read. Another one that is really hard to put down.

    The Simpsons Mathematical Secrets book is something I found accidentally while being really nerdy and watching this video. It turns out that a lot of The Simpsons writers are mathematicians. These guys slip nerdy Easter Eggs into the episodes, and Simon goes through them all. The video linked talks about how numbers should be difference for the Simpsons, as they only have 4 fingers (3 and a thumb) where as we have 5. This makes us use a base 10 number system, they should use a base 8 number system. Fundamentally changing things like Pi. The writers knew this. But there is one, and only one, character in The Simpsons who has 5 fingers (4 and a thumb), and so this is why they live in a decimal world - The only character is God, and he controls the number system for some reason.

    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time is a book I had to read in school. It is an amazing diary like "murder mystery novel like no other". It is narrated by a 15 year old boy with Asperger's Syndrome. It has been a while since I read this, so I don't remember a lot about it, but I remember reading it a couple of times before the rest of my class got around to finishing it. Not a long book, but a very good one!

    I included Harry Potter, because its an obvious choice. It's also the only one from the above that I've finished (other than The Curious Incident). I've finished all 7 books. But never got around finishing the others (only got the Simpsons one for Christmas). If you haven't seen the films, read the books first. They are 100 times better. Seriously. But the films are like icing on the amazing cake that is HP, so don't avoid them either. This isn't just a kids book/film like some people assume.

    Pets with Tourette's is a picture book. Not for kids. The things these pets say sometimes, disgraceful.

    Can't think of any others, but probably because it is 4am here. Hahaha.

    EDIT: Grammar and formatting errors.

Those are the UK editions I think, I'm not 100 percent on that but I know I got them from Waterstones and they're on Amazon over here:

I am a fan of the UK covers. I recently picked them up on a trip: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dark-Tower-Gunslinger-Stephen-King/dp/1444723448
