This Dark Chest of Wonders: 40 Years of The Stand delivers a complete and uncut look into one of Stephen King’s most enduring achievements. It hits November 2018.
In September 1978, Stephen King published The Stand, a massive, post-apocalyptic story that captured the imagination of his growing legion of Constant Readers, introducing them to his ultimate villain, Randall Flagg. Over the course of time, the tale of good and evil only gained in popularity, leading to the 1990 publication of The Stand: Complete and Uncut, which gave audiences the author’s original vision for his novel.
