Title: A Book that i feel that can be good inspiration
Post by: cuchulainn on March 12, 2014, 03:54:10 PM
I'm talking about "The wind through the keyhole" By Stephen King

The book is part of the dark tower series but this one can be read as a separate story. I just read it and i feel that can be very inspirational for the flavor of forge or maybe Fold. It features:

- A Whole guild of lumberjacks
- A Messenger Nymph (just like the one on Loom!)
- A very mystical approach to magic and beasts, that can be used.

In any case the book is awesome and i recommend it to anybody, be it a fan of the series or not. Thank you for your time.

I don't know the book itself, though I have one of the titles in that series laying around somewhere in my bookshelf. It looks interesting and I might give it a go.
Anyway, don't you think it's more likely that King took inspiration from Loom? He's not one to deny his influences after all, which is a good thing. As a matter of fact I respect him as an author, though I'm mostly a hardcore fan of his main source of inspiration (King admitted so): H.P. Lovecraft.

Thanks for sharing!
