Titan Books To Publish The Art And The Making of The Stand

Titan Books has announced the upcoming publication of the definitive companion title to the new  CBS All Access limited event series, The Stand, based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name.

In an apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an 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.

In 1979 Stephen King published The Stand, a massive apocalyptic tale that set the standard for all those stories that followed. The book was another King bestseller, leading to the release of The Complete and  Uncut version in 1990, a 1994 ABC four-part mini-series and a 31-issue Marvel Comics adaptation in 2009.  Now, King’s opus is being revisited for modern-day, with a 9-episode limited event series for the subscription streaming service, CBS All Access, with a star-studded cast, including Oscar™-winner Whoopi  Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgård, James Marsden, Odessa Young, Jovan Adepo, Amber Heard, Owen Teague,  Henry Zaga, Brad William Henke, Greg Kinnear, Irene Bedard and Nat Wolff all bringing the story into the  21st Century.

The Art And The Making of The Stand takes readers behind the scenes of this much-anticipated series to discover how a remarkable group of producers and actors brought Stephen King’s genre-defining opus to screen. The book is full to the brim with on-set photography, concept art and more, accompanied by interviews with the crew and all-star cast alongside the shooting script for the never-before-published coda written for the new series by King himself.

Written by The Stand expert Andy Burns, The Art And The Making of The Stand is set to publish in hardback on May 4, 2021, priced at $45.

The Stand premiered December 17th exclusively on CBS All Access. New episodes of the nine-episode limited event series will drop weekly on Thursdays.

Stephen King’s New Novel, Joyland Is Available Today, June 4, 2013

Hard Case Crime, the award-winning line of pulp-styled crime novels published by Titan Books, released Joyland, a new novel by Stephen King, today (June 4, 2013).

Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.

Joyland is a brand-new book and has never previously been published.

Called “the best new American publisher to appear in the last decade” by Neal Pollack in The Stranger, Hard Case Crime revives the storytelling and visual style of the pulp paperbacks of the 1940s, 50s, and 60s.

Stephen King commented, “I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts. That combo made Hard Case Crime the perfect venue for this book, which is one of my favorites. I also loved the paperbacks I grew up with as a kid, and for that reason, we’re going to hold off on e-publishing this one for the time being. Joyland will be coming out in paperback, and folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book.”

Joyland features new painted cover art by the legendary Robert McGinnis, the artist behind the posters for the original Sean Connery James Bond movies and “Breakfast At Tiffany’s,” and by Glen Orbik, the painter of more than a dozen of Hard Case Crime’s most popular covers.
