‘If’ novels were awarded certificates like films, this one would get a triple- ‘H” for horror. Philip Steele,THE SUN

Almost overnight, the population of ‘Salem’s Lot has gone from 1319 to nothing. At least, to nothing human.

Thousands of miles from the small New England town of ‘Salem’s Lot, two terrified people still share the secrets of those clap­board houses and tree-lined streets. One is an eleven-year-old boy who never speaks. Only his eyes betray the grotesque events he has witnessed. The other is a man with recurring nightmares of a placid little township trans­formed into a tableau of unrelenting horror, a man who know s that soon he and the boy must return to Salem’s Lot for a final confrontation with the unspeakable evil that lives on there.

By the author of the great best-seller, CARRIE, and the forthcoming master­piece, THE SHINING.
