Today’s Retro Thursday is courtesy of Robert McCammon and his incredible book Swan Song. This book caught my eye back in 87 when it was first published but I was young and didn’t have the discipline to handle a book of this size, being almost 1,000 pages. As an adult it crossed my path again and this time I was able to handle it. It does have similarities to The Stand, an Apocalyptic event here it is nuclear war while in The Stand its a super flu. And there is a good vs. evil war but that’s where the similarities end. Very good story one of McCammon’s best.
