News has just come in that Amazon Studios has passed on The Dark Tower pilot. The adaptation came from executive producer/showrunner Glen Mazzara and MRC. Word is that Amazon executives felt like the pilot was not on the level of other large-scope elevated genre series the streamer has in production/pre-production like Wheel Of Time and The Lord Of the Rings.

The Dark Tower TV series was designed to be independent from the 2017 film and was meant to be a more faithful retelling of the books than the movie was. The TV series started from the beginning with Wizard & Glass (many years before the events in the movie) and focused on the origin story of Roland Deschain’s (Sam Strike), how he became a gunslinger and his first conflict with The Man in Black (Jasper Pääkkönen).

Mr. King, a four-time Audie Award® winner and seventeen-time nominee, is the author of more than sixty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. A long-time advocate for audiobooks, Mr. King once wrote of his love of the format: “The spoken word is the acid test. They don’t call it storytelling for nothing.” Mr. King has narrated some of his own audiobooks, published audiobook originals, and has used his megaphone to highlight the joys of listening.

2020 is here and Lilja’s Library is starting its 24th year as the number one fan site for everything Stephen King related. And for that I want to thank you!

Even though it’s true that if no one visited the site I’d probably still keep it up and running and posting stuff, but I would lie if I said anything other than it’s you that makes it fun!

What makes it fun is all of you that come here and read what I write. All of you that comment on the stuff that I write. All of you that out of the blue contact me and want to talk Stephen King. That is what makes my day and I hope you’ll keep making my day for many years to come by visiting the site, by commenting on facebook, twitter or Instagram, by sending me messages showing me your collection or asking some question about King or his work.

In 2020 I’ll keep posting news about Stephen King and his work and I’ll keep reviewing and interviewing people that is in some way involved with Stephen King and his work. I will also plan how to celebrate the fact that the site turns 25 years next year, we do need to celebrate right? And how do you celebrate something that has been a big part in your life a quarter of a century? If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let me know!

And last (and least fun). If you want to help out financing the site, I appreciate donations, small or big through my paypal.

Again, thank you all and let’s make 2020 the best year yet!
