Swan Song - Robert R. McCammon, Tom Stechschulte

I can see why there are so many comparisons of this book to The Stand. It does seem to begin with a similar construction - lots of random characters of both white hat and black hat variety, religious fervor, and a supernatural creature who delights in death and destruction. That scene, btw, of him (it?) in the theater was super creepy.

 

This is pretty dated, but still plenty of fun so far.
