Una casa abbandonata, un paesino sperduto, vampiri assetati di sangue. Quando il giovane Stephen King decise di trapiantare Bram Stoker nel New England sapeva che la sua idea, nonostante le apparenze, era buona, ma forse neanche la sua fervida immaginazione avrebbe saputo dire quanto. Era il 1975 e, da allora, il racconto dell'avvento del Male a Jerusalem's Lot, meglio conosciuta come 'salem's Lot, non ha mai cessato di terrorizzare milioni di lettori, consacrando il suo autore come maestro dell'horror. Questo piccolo classico contemporaneo viene ora riproposto in un'edizione illustrata arricchita da una nuova introduzione, due racconti e un sostanzioso apparato che raccoglie le pagine eliminate nella stesura finale.

Mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, general fiction, etc. etc. etc. - you just don't hear Stephen King = horror all that much anymore. Well, if you want to get back to the ro Leggi tutto
There was a time once when vampires were ruthless predators and not the misunderstood brooding and essentially harmless creatures. Ahhhh, good old scary times...

Well this is annoying times two. I just wrote a review and lost it, and then there's the *other* issue. What other issue? Oh, the one where my 14 year old self of infinite wisdom and experience remembered a boring tale lacking truly epic blood and guts from what should be a vampire tale in a small tow Leggi tutto
I am so nostalgically looking back to a better time when certain fantasy creatures were still true monsters and not twinkling, soft, freaking feeling emo snobs. Somehow the Lovecraftian, subtle, rising horror aspect King was so strong at the beginning of his career diminished over the years and ther Leggi tutto
From the 1979 movie version of Salem’s Lot ”It would be years before I would hear Alfred Bester’s axiom ‘the book is the boss,’ but I didn’t need to; I learned it for myself writing the novel that eventually became Salem’s Lot.

Vampires. Years after I first read it, I can truthfully say that this is still on a short list of scariest books I have ever read. King at his best. An American re-telling of Dracula , King stays close to the vampire myth but with some of his own storytelling thrown in and some subtle changes that mak Leggi tutto
