Terse Book Reviews – ‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King

Reciept001

Really made me wonder if vampirism is just a metaphor for homosexuality?  Or outsider-ness in general.

(Incidentally, the copy of this book above is not my first copy, it’s my second.  I actually picked this up at a salvation army for a buck and would you believe it but this is actually a first printing paperback.  What’s curious is that because it’s a first printing paperback it not only pre-dates one of King’s children, but also pre-dates his super-stardom.  After all, in later years the ‘Stephen King’ name would go prominently on the cover of all his work.  Clearly, with this printing, he hadn’t yet achieved that ubiquity.)
