Robin Furth is the personal research assistant to Stephen King and the author of Stephen King's The Dark Tower: A Complete Concordance (2006). It is a compilation of her two previous encyclopedic books dealing with King's magnum opus, The Dark Tower: A Concordance, volume I – which explores the first four books in King's series – and A Concordance II, which gives the reader definitions and explanations of pivotal terms used over the course of the final three books of The Dark Tower.
Furth was raised in Upper Darby and along the coast of Maine. She illustrated the maps that appear in the novel The Dark Tower. Furth plotted the comic book spin-off miniseries The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born, which serves as a counterpart to the series of novels written by Stephen King.
