    I'm a resident of Australia and I've been a massive fan of Stephen King since I was 9 when walking past a second-hand book store I saw through the large, plate-glass window the ominous figure of the vampire Barlow on the cover of Salem's Lot. I just had to read it. Being 9 I had no money so I did what most non-fearing 9 year-olds did (still do?), I stole it. I read it under the covers with a torch and I've been hooked on Stephen's books since. I'm now forty-five. Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself, and I hope to converse with a few of you as time goes by.

    Great intro story. And welcome! As a newbie myself I want to say this is a fun and friendly bunch of folks who don't beat you about the head and shoulders about your grammar or your spelling or that pesky misplaced comma. They remind me of the group of friends I always wanted in high school.

    Welcome to the board. I want to ask something. Salems Lot is one of the few that didn't hold up for me over time. I mean the characters were great, but I felt that the dialogue was a bit stilted.
