    A great read! To that I will add the full novel, "The Stand" unabridged version at 1,100 pages is, in my view, Stephen King's masterwork and well worth the time if one has a lot on their hands. When...

    Agreed with Colorado Rob on this. Many people will likely say it will be nuts next year but as Rob points out there are far too many variables to make that assessment. For one, many people will be...
