This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death.And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides -- or are chosen. A world in which good rides on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail -- and the worst nightmares of evil are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the dark man. In 1978 Stephen King published The Stand, the novel that is now considered to be one of his finest works. But as it was first published, The Stand was incomplete, since more than 150,000 words had been cut from the original manuscript. Now Stephen King's apocalyptic vision of a world blasted by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil has been restored to its entirety.

It gives us new characters and endows familiar ones with new depths. It Read More chevron_right

I saw the (old) tv miniseries years ago, and yes, I admit it, am not a real fan of Stephen King, YET….. this original ,long length version, was really, REALLY good. I got caught up in the characters and the as the plot progressed I had trouble putting it down. If you have some time, I recommend reading this version. Probably King’s best. As always. Second Sale has the best prices!
