Oh my, world's ultimate MarySue

I am not 100% positive about this as I am still reading the series and have a book and a half to go, but I think I may have found the ultimate MarySue story.
Yes, this is published.
Stephen King's Dark Tower series.

He has written himself into it as a character that, I suspect, is the ultimate dark lord. Not to mention his characters keep thinking that they are characters in someone's story. I'm going to keep reading because I like Roland and Jake, but it is getting really hard to take this seriously.

But if you like King's work, check it out. The story is to die for creative, even with the crack he keeps putting in there. I am seriously tempted to go to his web page and ask if he knows about MarySue.

Well, as far as I've read and watched SK, many of his works feature author figures... in Maine...
And some movies has him in cameo~
Mary Sue isn't just applied to the fanfiction genre?

They do, and it's fun in the movies to try and spot him :) but this one was pretty out there. It wasn't just him, as I found while reading, it was his wife and kids too. Very hard to read through for me. Although I did have it backwards. He was one of the ultimate good guys, not bad guys.

I'm pretty sure it does, but I didn't know what else to call this so people would understand what I was talking about.
