I can't recommend "Dark Tower", frankly. "The Stand" was great, as I remember it, except for the deus-ex-machina ending, which seemed bolted on - but the story up to the ending made the game worth the candle. However, a much younger 'me' read that, so take it as you will. I have not read the extended version.

Stephen King uses The Stand as his argument for "sometimes the ending doesn't come to you." It still bugged him ten years later.

Make of that what you will.
