Barlow looks a bit like a gargoyle. Could it have been Salems Lot? This is just one of Salems Lot book covers.

It could very well have just been a copy of Salem's Lot (I've just recently brought a new edition of the book), so I'm going to end up reading it anyway.

It's not a huge problem, because I do plan on reading all of Stephen Kings books (eventually), so I will end up reading the 'book' in question, it would just be nice to know what it was, so I could say I've finally read it after all these years :wink2:

Probably when I was about year 4, so I wanted to read it about 2002-2003? But I remember seeing it when my mother first started reading Stephen King, probably 1999-ish.

Probably not much help, but that's all I can remember.
Well it does eliminate 25 or so books maybe. Was this in the US, Europe or what?

Hi there, I'm relatively new to the Stephen King universe. I started off reading IT, then proceeded to The Gunslinger, and I'm now onto The Stand.

However.... I remember as a child having a Stephen King book on my book shelf, which I was never allowed to read; from what I remember, it was blue, relatively chunky, and had a gargoyle/statue on a rooftop on the cover. I cannot remember what it was titled, nor can I ask my mother. (It was not "Nightmares in the Sky: Gargoyles and Grotesques") So my question is - does anyone know of what it could possibly be called.
No idea but I will check my library. You might find it on library thing.
