Upon its initial publication in 1975, Salem’s Lot was recognized as a landmark work. The novel has sold millions of copies in various editions, but it wasn’t until Centipede Press published a special limited edition in 2004 that King’s masterpiece was brought to brilliant and eerie life. With the addition of fifty pages of material deleted from the 1975 manuscript as well as material that has since been modified by King, an introduction by him, and two short stories related to the events of the novel, this edition represents the text as the author envisioned it. Centipede’s deluxe edition, of which only 900 copies were printed, features lavishly creepy photographs by acclaimed photographer Jerry Uelsmann, printed interior endpapers, and a stunning page design.Doubleday is proud to make this volume, printed from the original design of the Centipede Press edition, available to the general reader. No King aficionado’s library will be complete without owning this definitive illustrated edition of the great Salem’s Lot.

Also the women were given very little importance I felt and done away with in this book. It would have been great to have some of them for the final fight or the list of survivors. I a...

4.0 Review of Salems Lot by Stephen King
It had been a while since I read Stephen King, it was like returning to an old friend. This novel was the second he published, and one of the classics I had not read. I really enjoyed this tale of vampires, and even though it was published more than 30 years ago, I think it has aged very well. It...

3.0 Creepy Is Good, Scary Is Better
A struggling author returns to the town he grew up in to revisit some skeletons of his past for a new book. He finds romance, friendship and more evil then he can deal with as townspeople start disappearing. Stephen King can really describe a setting and get you settled in. He gets the reader th...

The beginning of this novel was very strong as the players figured out what was going on...but the...
