The Stand

THE STAND is Stephen King’s apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man. The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios. Josh Boone and Ben Cavell will write and executive produce, with Boone also directing. Stephen King will write the last chapter of the series, providing a new coda that isn’t found in the book. Roy Lee, Jimmy Miller and Richard P. Rubinstein will also serve as executive producers with Will Weiske serving as co-executive producer. Knate Lee, Jill Killington and Owen King will serve as producers. THE STAND is expected to premiere on CBS All Access by the end of 2020.

SOMETIMES GROWING UP MEANS FACING YOUR DEMONS

The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine—as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave.

LATER is the third book Stephen King has written for Hard Case Crime. Both of the previous two, THE COLORADO KID and JOYLAND, were New York Times bestsellers.

Stephen King commented, “I love the Hard Case format, and this story—combining a boy who sees beyond our world and strong elements of crime and suspense—seemed a perfect fit.”

LATER is a beautiful story about growing up and facing your demons -- whether they’re metaphorical or (as sometimes happens when you’re in a Stephen King novel) the real thing,” said Charles Ardai, the Edgar Award-winning editor of Hard Case Crime. “It’s terrifying, tender, heartbreaking and honest, and we’re so excited to bring it to readers.”

LATER will be published initially as a paperback original, featuring an original cover painting by Paul Mann. This edition will be followed by a limited-edition hardcover that will feature two new cover paintings by award-winning artist Gregory Manchess, one for LATER itself and one for a fictitious novel within the novel that features prominently in the plot. An ebook edition of LATER will also be available.

Support Booksellers with the Rock Bottom Remainders

Posted: August 7th, 2020 5:07:43 pm EDT

Join the Rock Bottom Remainders in their support of booksellers! They are doing so with the release of a music video to support BINC — the Book Industry Charitable Foundation. The pandemic has impacted bookstores and their staff and the Rock Bottom Remainders, who typically do benefit concerts to support literacy and book related causes want to support bookstores and booksellers.

The song is their version of “Stand by Me” by Ben E. King with lyrics adapted by Dave Barry and members of the band and guests participating in the video.

“The Remainders, like all authors, love independent bookstores and booksellers, and wanted to use our musical talents to help them. Unfortunately, we don’t have any musical talents. But we hope this video will help anyway.”
— Dave Barry
