The idea behind this blog is to share my opinions about Post-Apocalyptic Literature, Films and Ephemera as well as my random nattering on a regular basis.

Similar? I think not.

I've heard it far too many times. The Stand and Swan Song are nearly the same. So... for my next three books I will read and compare not just The Stand and Swan Song I'm throwing Dark Advent by Brian Hodge into the mix as well. It's compared to The Stand far too often.

BTW I can think of only two similarities off hand.

Similarity the First: The Holland Tunnel is traveled through in both.

Similarity the Second: Randal Flagg and The Man with the Scarlet Eye are both evil and possibly demons, both vanish from the story in the same way and appear later in the story.

Hey, thanks for turning me on to Dark Advent; I had never heard of it, but it does sound interesting. The Stand without the mystical parts would be perfect in my book.

I have too many books in my queue to get to it soon, but I'll add it to my "get to it someday" list.
