'Salem's Lot Epilogue

By Stephen King


  • The epilogue starts with a bunch of articles from Ben Mears's scrapbook, all about unpleasant doings in and around 'Salem's Lot: people killed, faces at windows, sheep slaughtered—that sort of thing.
  • Ben and Mark come back into 'Salem's Lot and set a fire to burn down the town and smoke out the vampires.
  • Then they plan to stake them. The end. (See "What's Up With the Ending?")
