Arguably the greatest horror novel ever written by the greatest horror novelist, "The Stand" is a true modern classic that was first published in 1978, and then republished in 1990, complete and unabridged. Now available in a tall Premium Edition.
When a man escapes from a biological testing facility, he sets in motion a deadly domino effect, spreading a mutated strain of the flu that will wipe out 99 percent of humanity within a few weeks. The survivors who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge--Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious "Dark Man," who delights in chaos and violence.
(This edition includes all of the new and restored material first published in The Stand The Complete And Uncut Edition.)
