The Stand

My Soul to Keep by Maidenjedi

'Everyone is a little bit corrupt, he’s found, a little bit naughty inside. And secrets lie behind doors of all kinds, mahogany or framed screen doors, whitewashed doors and barely-hanging-on-the-hinges doors.' Randall Flagg makes a suitably disturbing narrator in this brief prequel to The Stand

West by Edonohana & Kore

'Fran figured that even if the dark man won and the earth crumbled, a couple bags of Fritos would float around in space, unchanged and indestructible, as crunchy and salty as the day they were made.' An inspired feminist re-envisioning of the final act of The Stand, clever & moving
