Notes:

The alien force in loose in Desperation, Nevada, and, having occupied the bodies of a succession of citizens, has gruesomely slaughtered everyone else in town. Now in the body of a patrolling dcop, it is picking up people motoring by on U.S. 50. Foremost among those are burned out novelist Johnny Marinville and 11 year old David Carver, who barely a year ago underwent a serious religious conversion and occasionally hears the voice of Godd. It is God--the God of the Christian Bible, both Testaments--who eventually saves Johnny, David and the rest of those who survive Desperation, but saves them only by means of their own free will and their own heroic and gory exertions.
