    I just finished reading 'Salem's Lot and I was wondering what happened. Did Ben and Mark start cleaning up the town? It seems so open ended.

    Was looking at SK novels/paperback...last night I think it was...saw this on a white page: it was a pleasure to burn. --Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 Forget now what story that is...what's the word? an epigraph? too? That was my sense, that there would be a cleansing.

    ...cleansing happened...but did it work?...methinks the town or what's left of it is still haunted...

    Methinks you're right. Some places have a memory, and that memory is long.

    'salem's Lot is mentioned in a few of the later books, even that it was swept by fire (if I'm remembering right), but it's still a creepy place that people tend to avoid. I took from those things that vamps continued to live there after the fire.

    I hijacked Lois007's (secret agent?) thread. Sorry, Lois, just happy to see Blunt again. I will stop posting about Bigfoot here. :)

    As far as Salem's Lot goes, maybe they tried to clean it but I think it's still got problems.

    Dammit Frank, you need to 'pop up' in one of the general chit-chat threads... we've derailed this one further than ever! :biggrin2:

    Ahem, *coughs* Re: 'Salem's Lot: I would agree with the others, cleaning up aside, Vampires are a persistently unshiftable bunch so I think the Lot probably still had their issues.

    Yes, there was a cleansing, but it didn't work out so well. The Lot was referenced in many other stories. Read "One for the Road" from the Night Shift collection for a post-novel story from the Lot. Without giving any spoilers. The Lot was still active during Pet Sematary, and was referenced as a "Company Town" for the True Knot in Doctor Sleep. Callahan also fills in the story a little during one of the final DT books (can't recall which one right now, but he describes going todash to visit Mark) . . . probably Song of Susannah, but I'm not 100% certain.
