Description
"The book offers a different experience from the film since it can obviously go into much more detail," says Rob Zombie. "The book and the film really complement each other."
From the singular mind of horror maestro Rob Zombie comes a chilling plunge into a nightmare world where evil runs in the blood...
The Lords of Salem
Heidi Hawthorne is a thirty-seven-year-old FM radio DJ and a recovering drug addict. Struggling with her newfound sobriety and creeping depression, Heidi suddenly receives an anonymous gift at the station-a mysteriously shaped wooden box branded with a strange symbol. Inside the box is a promotional record for a band that identifies themselves only as The Lords. There is no other information.
She decides to play it on the radio show as a joke, and the moment she does, horrible things begin to happen. The strange music awakens something evil in the town. Soon enough, terrifying murders begin to happen all around Heidi. Who are The Lords? What do they want?
As old bloodlines are awakened and the bodies start to pile up, only one thing seems certain: all hell is about to break loose.

        January 21, 2013
        Musician and filmmaker Zombie, assisted by thinly pseudonymized literary horror author Brian Evenson (Immobility), opens his debut with a harrowing and graphic description of a satanic ritual in 1692 Salem, but that terror isn’t sustained effectively throughout the book. A pregnant woman’s child is ripped from her womb and sacrificed to the devil. The resulting reddish smoke tips off Justice Samuel Mather, who leads a group of his colleagues to root out the witches. After the bloody resolution to that encounter, the narrative flashes forward to the present and introduces recovering drug addict Heidi Hawthorne, a descendant of one of the witch hunters. Strange things begin happening to Heidi, but the reader isn’t given much time to wonder about her sanity, since two sinister nuns immediately appear to explain that the mysterious happenings are of supernatural origin. Ritual murders follow, as do other predictable developments that are unengaging and not particularly scary. Agent: David Vigliano, Vigliano Associates.
