The Stand by Stephen King
FIRST EDITION PAPERBACK  SIGNET BOOKS
Later [30th] printing. Original issuing of The Stand. Contains the original now long out of print version of the novel before King updated and vastly expanded the novel in 1990.
Solid reading copy. *Visible wear to cover and heavy tanning to cover and pages.
Otherwise, very good! Tightly bound with some visible wear to cover and read wear to spine.
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.
