It's now very unclear if King will finish The Plant since he has said he might not publish any more non Dark Tower books.

Book one: Zenith Rising will be back

Posted: March 7, 2001, 15:52
All of you that have missed Book one: Zenith Rising can relax. On King's official site he now says that when he continues The Plant, he will also put part one online again.

Here is what it says:

Q: Where have all the installments gone?

A: The Plant is furling its leaves for the time being while Stephen works on other projects. When the installments of Book 2 go online, we will also make Book 1 available again for those of you who missed it the first time round. If you would like to be notified when it comes back with new installments, please join the mailing list and we'll send you an email.
