This week Allison sits down with post-apocalyptic fiction author David Kazzie to discuss what is largely considered Stephen King's most epic and consequential work, The Stand. Apart from talking about the story's origins, we consider how it holds up in the current era. What's it like lining up a fictional pandemic against a real one? How does King manage to make such a story originally crafted in 1978 (and revised and expanded in 1990) feel so relatable to the tumultuous events of today?
