Adapted from Stephen King’s novella of the same name, The Little Sisters of Eluria continues the tale of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger. While wandering through the Desatoya Mountains searching for the trail of the Man in Black, Roland comes across the deserted town of Eluria. The only living—or once living—creatures he finds are a dead boy, a limping dog, and strange, singing insects. But just as Roland tries to give the boy a proper burial, he is attacked by the mutant Green Folk and beaten into unconsciousness. When he awakes, he finds his wounded body suspended by white bandages in the hospital tent of the Little Sisters of Eluria. Despite the beauty and sweetness of Sister Jenna, the order’s youngest member, Roland soon discovers that the blood-hungry Sisters are not human at all.

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.
