The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub was my first trek into the world of Travelin' Jack Sawyer and the Territories, and as a fan of King's Dark Tower series (of which this eventually became a companion novel), I was delighted to go back to a time when the Dark Tower universe was young and largely unexplored. Or as King might phrase it, most of the fossil had yet to be discovered. Getting comfortable with Jack's world takes some time even though everything seems similar to our own. In the beginning, at least. It wouldn't be a classic King novel without plenty of supernatural surprises along the way. Part of the fun is experiencing the journey from Jack's perspective, and Jack has no idea what he's in for so we get to learn and grow with him.
