Stephen King’s second novel, the classic vampire bestseller ’SALEM’S LOT, tells the story of evil in small-town America. For the first time in a major trade edition, this terrifying novel is accompanied by previously unpublished material from King’s archive, two short stories, and eerie photographs that bring King’s fictional darkness and evil to vivid life.

When Stephen King’s classic thriller’SALEM’S LOT hit the stands in 1975, it thrilled and terrified millions of readers with tales of demonic evil in small-town America. Now, thirty years later and still scaring readers witless, ’SALEM’S LOT reemerges in a brilliant new edition, complete with photographs, fifty pages of deleted and alternate scenes, and two short stories related to the events of the novel.

While the original edition of ’SALEM’S LOT will forever be a premier horror classic, ’SALEM’S LOT: ILLUSTRATED EDITION, with the inclusion of material from King’s archive, is destined to become a classic in its own right and a must-have for all Stephen King fans. In this edition, the hair-raising story of Jerusalem’s Lot, a small town in Maine whose inhabitants succumb to the evil allure of a new resident, is told as the author envisioned it, complete with fifty pages of alternate and deleted scenes. With a new introduction by the author, two short stories related to the events and residents of Jerusalem’s Lot, the lavishly creepy photographs of Jerry Uelsmann, and a stunning new page design, this edition brings the story to life in words and pictures as never before.

No library will be complete without this ideal collector’s item for any King aficionado, the definitive illustrated edition of the great ’SALEM’S LOT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect October read This is what spooky stories should be! I don't want to give anything away in terms of what sort of evil appears in the story, as it remains unknown for the first while, which makes it all the creepier, but it's done beautifully. As always, great descriptions, haunting imagery and story, and just an all around great spooky thriller. Perfect for Halloween!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Fun Read! King's second novel is a simple, fun read; a real page-turner. In my opinion, this is a giant leap forward from his first novel "Carrie".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great read! I really enjoyed this, I mostly had read King's later work but after finishing the Dark Tower series I bought some older ones. A thrilling tale of a small town turned upside down, a great take on vampire stories.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't like it like I knew I wouldn't Well... I tried it. There wasn't much I liked about about Salems Lot at all. I thought the writing was ok. Mr. King wrote Salems Lot as this small gossipy town, which I didn't like. Horror is my lest favorite genre to watch or read, but I figured I would give this one a try anyway. Needless to say I have no desire to read anything else by Stephen King other than 11/22/63.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Currently Reading.... While I am currently reading this book, I must say that this is quite an exquisite story. One of King's best, and a great spin on the classic tale of Dracula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'salem's Lot Was not disappointed in the slightest. A creepy, terrifying page turner that makes you check the shadows before bed. Glad I found out what happens to Father Callahan in Wolves of the Calla.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Never-Ending Story The prologue gives away the ending. However, you get to that ending at the 82% mark. Then, you have an epilogue, a random story, a bunch of Nineteenth Century letters and journal entries. That brings you to the 87% mark. I quit reading at the deleted scenes section. Even the first 82% was too long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable read Really enjoyed reading it - though it rambled at times, it's pretty typical of King and was expected. Not as scary as I thought it would be but still: thought he did a good job of making the Bram Stoker type of vampire creepy as hell.
