Summary (From the publisher):

'Salem's Lot is a small New England town with white clapboard houses, tree-lined streets, and solid church steeples. That summer in 'salem's Lot was a summer of homecoming and return; spring burned out and the land lying dry, crackling underfoot.

Late that summer, Ben Mears returned to 'salem's Lot hoping to cast out his own devils and found instead a new, unspeakable horror. A stranger had also come to the Lot, a stranger with a secret as old as evil, a secret that would wreak irreparable harm on those he touched and in turn on those they loved.

All would be changed forever: Susan, whose love for Ben could not protect her; Father Callahan, the bad priest who put his eroded faith to one last test; and Mark, a young boy who sees his fantasy world become reality and ironically proves the best equipped to handle the relentless nightmare of 'Salem's Lot.

'Salem's Lot: Illustrated Edition (2005)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

Upon its initial publication in 1975, Salemís Lot was recognized as a landmark work. The novel has sold millions of copies in various editions, but it wasnít until Centipede Press published a special limited edition in 2004 that Kingís 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. Centipedeís 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 aficionadoís library will be complete without owning this definitive illustrated edition of the great Salemís Lot.
