New in Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' series

Even though it's the 8th book he's written for the "Dark Tower" series, Stephen King refers to his latest book as 'book 4.5' because it comes between book 4, Wizard and Glass, and book 5, Wolves of the Calla.  Like J.K. Rowling's Tales of Beedle the Bard, which was a series companion volume based on Harry Potter mythology, King's new book The Wind through the Keyhole is only loosely connected to the Dark Tower series.  In The Wind through the Keyhole, a teenage Roland Deschain takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to a murderous shape-shifter's most recent slaughter. Roland calms the boy by reciting a story from the Magic Tales of the Eld that his mother used to read to him at bedtime, "The Wind through the Keyhole."   Looking for the complete list of books in the "Dark Tower" series?  Here they are, in reading order:

1) The Gunslinger
2) The Drawing of the Three
3) The Waste Lands
4) Wizard and Glass
4.5) The Wind Through the Keyhole (Stephen King's newest book)
5) Wolves of the Calla
6) Song of Susannah
7) The Dark Tower (the final book in the Dark Tower series)
