2. ‘The Stand,’ by Stephen King

In King’s post-apocalyptic world, nearly the entire population has been wiped out by failure to contain an engineered super-virus.

Meanwhile, the shadowy Randall Flagg uses fear to lead his Las Vegas colony. The antithetical groups are driven toward a final showdown.
