Salem's Lot Illustrated Edition
On sale from November 1, 2005 Salem's Lot Illustrated Edition is a must-have for any Stephen King fan.
Featuring a new introduction by the author, fifty pages of deleted and alternate scenes, two short stories related to events in the novel, and the creepy photographs of Jerry Uelsmann, this edition (based on the limited-run 2004 edition by Centipede Press) is being released by Doubleday in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the publication of this horror classic! .
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.
