It's official-- Rob Zombie's LORDS OF SALEM will be getting released theatrically on April 26th, 2013. Unfortunately, the distributor, Anchor Bay, has yet specify whether it will be wide or limited. I'm guessing by the Spring release date it'll probably be the former. Fingers crossed...

In an even stranger bit of news, it seems a novelization will be accompanying the film's release. Co-written by O. Henry award winner B.K. Evenson, the tie-in will hit shelves March 12 courtesy of Grand Central Publishing. The executive editor of GCP has confirmed his own excitement for the book, stating “As a horror junkie and a fan of Rob’s work, I am thrilled that GCP will be publishing this novel. THE LORDS OF SALEM is Rob’s first original horror story since the great THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, and it delivers exactly what his fans have been waiting for.”

LORDS OF SALEM has gotten mixed reviews but has been described as Zombie's boldest and most experimental work to date. For this reason, it might be a good idea to pre-order the novel to get a leg-up on making sense of the mayhem. And, with that, Sheri Moon Zombie's love of partial nudity shall play us out...

Extra Tidbit: I'm pretty excited about Rob's upcoming hockey movie. I think with the chance to branch out of his horror niche, he's going to surprise a lot of people...

Well, good. A wide audience gets to see Lords of Salem finally, and that audience might even be wide while watching. Thanks for recommending the novel. As the article states, a person might appreciate the movie more if the novel tells that person the story first. Some films gain coherence by their novels. Watchmen, Dune, and 2001: A Space Odyssey are examples.
