The Stand by Stephen King [UK HARDCOVER REISSUE / 1990]
UK EDITION  HODDER & STOUGHTON
Dust jacket is in excellent condition with some light edge wear. Book itself looks and reads nicely; pristine cover and white, unmarked pages. Some foxing to outer page edges and a bit of a bend to pages towards the end of the book.
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.
