Show Notes:

Before he ruled Vegas in The Stand Randall Flagg walked America as The Dark Man in Stephen King's 1969 poem. Join Arnie as he reads and reviews this work.

Of all the monsters in Stephen King's fiction none have captured reader imaginations quite like The Stand's Randall Flagg--The Walkin' Dude, The Dark Man. But nine years before The Stand was published King wrote of this Dark Man who walked, rode trains, and hitchhiked across America leaving bodies in his wake.  This is detailed in King's college poem "The Dark Man."  In 2013 Cemetery Dance Publications printed this in an illustrated book, and Arnie has read and reviewed it in this episode of Books & Nachos.  Join him to learn about The Dark Man's early appearance as he prepares for next week's review of The Stand.
