Product description
The residents of Jerusalem's Lot, a small town in southern Maine, have a vampire in their midst, which they discover when people suddenly start disappearing. With SALEM'S LOT, the reigning monarch of horror, Stephen King, leaves his imprint on the corpus of vampire literature.

Upon its initial publication in 1975, Salem's Lotwas 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.

salems lot illustrated edition by stephen king (2005)

A great edition to any true stephen king fan. here lies the original salems lot novel with so much more for the Stephen King lover to get out of it. you can take a peek inside the imagination of King as the pictures unfold his own creative journey through the story. It goes on and gives more than i had at first anticipated and could not be more pleased with the results.

Salem's Lot (Illustrated Edition-Doubleday)-Hardbound

King has outdone himeself with this edition. This book not only brings you to Salem's Lot, it puts you there as one of the residents, illustrations, deleted scenes, and all!! The best description would be: This edition provides the clearest picture and brings today's younger generation of readers back to the 1970s when this book was conceived. It does away with the most common (fatal) mistake of all present day movie remakes-which is to "PUT AN OLD MOVIE INTO AN UPDATED TODAY VERSION." That is why the new Salem's Lot movie (starring Rob Lowe) pales in comparison to the original (starring David Soul)which gives the story its "bite!".Today's younger generation reader, for instance, would have a little trouble figuring out what a "Citroen" is, albeit David Soul's Jeep Renegade versus Rob Lowe's SUV!This book version should have come sooner!!

One of King's best novels. Read it, by all means read it!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

'Salem's Lot has always been one of my favorite
Stephen King novels. When I saw that the new
illustrated edition with a new introduction and
some unpublished chapters was available, I knew
I would have to have it. I am not sorry in the
least for the purchase, but the illustrations are
not as good as I had hoped for. The new introduction
was interesting and the unpublished chapters were
a really great read, but only because I had read the
book previously. For a first time reader they would
probably not be particularly worthwhile. Although I found
the unpublished chapters fascinating, I can understand how
they ended up on the cutting room floor. If you have never read this novel, buy this and read it. If you already have this novel, there is not enough substantially new material in this one to merit purchase.

Salem's Lot

Early Stephen King novels have always been my favorites. I have all his books in paperback. Hardcover is the only way to own your favorite books!

Salems Lot

Stephen King is 2nd on my list of all time greatest authors ( First is Dean Koontz ), I just wish he could write a book a week, Then I wouldnt have to keep waiting for the next one to come out. Im not going to go into details about the book as if you are like me, I prefer to not know anything untill I start reading about it in the book, I have read most of his books so far and I love them all.
So as you can probably guess from what I wrote above, I highly Recomend this book.
This is another of his books made into a movie, The film is considered a classic Horror flick.
