Book Review
Stephen King's second book, 'Salem's Lot (1975)--about the slow takeover of an insular hamlet called Jerusalem's Lot by a vampire patterned after Bram Stoker's Dracula--has two elements that he also uses to good effect in later novels: a small American town, usually in Maine, where people are disconnected from each other, quietly nursing their potential for evil; and a mixed bag of rational, goodhearted people, including a writer, who band together to fight that evil.

Simply taken as a contemporary vampire novel, 'Salem's Lot is great fun to read, and has been very influential in the horror genre. But it's also a sly piece of social commentary. As King said in 1983, "In 'Salem's Lot, the thing that really scared me was not vampires, but the town in the daytime, the town that was empty, knowing that there were things in...

From Publishers Weekly
In an enlightening, authoritative foreword to this retrospective collection of Uelsmann's radical photo art, Coleman, who teaches at the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University, cites photomontages of 19th-century sentimentalists and Dadaists of the 1920s as important precursors to Uelsmann's work--the intermanipulation of two or more pre-imaged negatives to produce a single ``post-visualized'' print. As seen here in seamless cohesion, improbably matched images ``appear integral to the depicted scene.'' In a reverse kinship of form, four hands softly entwined contrast with four rocks suspended and forbodingly separate in mid-air; individual orbed faces are either hand-held or framed in a geographer's globe; a tiny human figure climbs the slope of a tilted drafting-board in a richly paneled chamber open to...
