This Dark Chest of Wonders: 40 Years of Stephen King’s The Stand is now available for any North American with a Kindle e-reader. Written by Biff Bam Pop’s own Andy Burns, the book is a non-fiction history of Stephen King’s grand vision of the Apocalypse. For readers interested in behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes, This Dark Chest of Wonders is more than just a book. It’s an education.
”I’ve been reading Stephen King since I was a pre-teen,” says Burns. “The Stand has long been my favourite novel of his, and writing This Dark Chest of Wonders was an amazing opportunity to tell the story of this seminal piece of King’s work, from its beginnings through all of its adaptations. I hope King’s Constant Readers enjoy it.”
Practically every iteration of The Stand is covered here, from the book itself to the classic mini-series, and even the never produced screenplay that was to be directed by George Romero. Including interviews with Stand-centric people such as Mick Garris, Jamey Sheridan and WG Snuffy Walden, the electronic version of This Dark Chest of Wonders: 40 Years of Stephen King’s The Stand is available through Amazon in both the United States and Canada.
