First came the days of the plague. Then came the dreams.

Dark dreams that warned of the coming of the dark man. The apostate of death, his worn-down boot heels tramping the night roads. The warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil.

His time is at hand. His empire grows in the west and the Apocalypse looms.

Reviews

His work plumbs with unnerving accuracy, the hopes and fears of an entire nation
<i>Observer</i>
As a storyteller, he is up there in the Dickens class.
<i>The Times</i>
A writer of excellence . . . King is one of the most fertile storytellers of the modern novel
<i>The Sunday Times</i>
[The Stand] has everything - adventure, romance, prophecy, allegory, satire, fantasy, realism, apocalypse . . . Great!
New York Times Book Review
A masterpiece . . . King says in the novel's introduction that he "wanted to write a fantasy epic like The Lord of the Rings, only with an American setting", and that's absolutely what he did . . . The Stand is dense and rich. Every character is full and alive
Guardian
A fabulous teller of stories who can create an entire new world and make the reader live in it
