Yep i read them all as a teenager, I remember Domain being more apocalyptic if i'm right.
I read The Survivor and Jonah last year but went on a comic book binge for a bit of escapism during all the heavy shit going down during lockdown.

Maybe i reed to get this as a go between.

I've got another old copy of this, read that as a teenager too.

I noticed this film the other day and thought the synopsis sounded similar, didn't realise it was actually based on the book, might have to watch that at some point.

It's these embossed Herbert and King covers that are really nostalgic for me.

Thinking about it i'm pretty sure Herbert himself designed some of the early embossed covers as he was a designer before becoming a novelist, although i may have made this up, i read a book on him a few years ago.

Nostalgic indeed never seen the front cover of Salem's Lot like that, mind you, you are a couple of years older than me , think Herbert did have a say in the designs.

You should, he's really good.

You can often pick up his stuff at mill shop outlets at 3 for a fiver or places like The Works.

Kick a man while he's down.

That Salem's lot cover has a bit of a name that film going on, Nosferatu, a pic of the kid version of Oliver Reed from Hammers Curse of the werewolf, the two women from Vampyres and the cat biting kid from one of those portmanteau films i think.
