The Waste Lands (subtitled “Redemption”) is the third book of The Dark Tower series published in August 1991. The original limited edition hardcover featuring full-color illustrations by Ned Dameron was published in 1991 by Grant. The book was reissued in 2003 to coincide with the publication of The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla.
The book derives its title from the T. S. Eliot 1922 poem The Waste Land, several lines of which are reprinted in the opening pages. In addition, the two main sections of the book (“Jake: Fear in a Handful of Dust” and “Lud: A Heap of Broken Images”) are named after lines in the poem.
The Waste Lands was nominated for the 1991 Bram Stoker Award for Novel.
