The Stand by Stephen King [FIRST EDITION PAPERBACK] 1980
The Stand by Stephen King
FIRST EDITION PAPERBACK  SIGNET BOOKS
Later printing. Gorgeous mint and unread paperback of this 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.
Book is like new and unread; Cover is pristine w/ only minor trace wear. Text block and spine are immaculate. Gorgeous!
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.
