The Stand


The Stand

Every Stephen King fan has a favorite book. I'd bet THE STAND is high on everybody's list. First published in 1978 with major cuts from King's manuscript, THE STAND was later re-issued in its entirety. This is the one you want to read. It's the epic battle between good and evil. How DO ordinary people survive when a virus wipes out ninety percent of the world's population? Enter this post-apocalyptic world and join a band of intriguing characters as they decide which way to go.
