The novel has sold millions of copies in various editions. Now, 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. It also features lavishly creepy photographs by acclaimed photographer Jerry Uelsmann, printed interior endpapers, and a stunning page design.Hide synopsis

Salem's Lot was one of King's early novels and it followed the pre-Twilight formula of how a vampire should act; evil; and they didn't sparkle.
How does one say that this isn't King's best work without sounding derogatory? When you consider his body of work, novels and short stories alike, his texts, then you have to understand that mediocre King is still head and shoulders above the rest.
This includes a patter that King has kept for the most part in his works, decent people in horrible situations, love found, love lost. And the ending isn't always a pretty one.
Would I recommend this book? Hell yes! Any fan of King will not be disappointed and any fan of horror will be a fan of King if they haven't been before.
This is a novel that had slipped through my list of King's works without being read. I'm glad I've corrected that.
THIS WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE COOLEST SCRAIEST WIERDEST BOOK THAT I HAVE EVER READ. IT WILL LEAVE YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT FOR HOURS AND IT HAS ENOUGH TWISTS THAT YOU WON'T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT.
