"All the children are insane..."

Check out the scary mom jeans on this young-adult-fiction-looking girl of Salem's Children (1978)! But the ghostly figures behind her... anything creepier than 19th century garb? No - unless it's kids wearing it. Yikes.

This Salem's Child (1987) looks like one of them - well, it's kinda not PC for me to say it, so I'll let this do the talking.

Okay, I know, I know, 'Salem's Lot (1975 - this paperback probably mid-'90s)) doesn't take place in Salem, it's not the same thing at all... but the cover of this edition works, and it references one of my all-time favorite scenes in all of horror fiction, so.

You'll love the new version of WOMEN IN BLACK. Plenty of ghostly children in this movie.

Can't wait! Also wanna track down a copy of the paperback.
