about this item

“Wild, mesmerizing, perversely witty….A Valentine from hell.” —Janet Maslin, New York Times

 

The publication of Joe Hill’s beautifully textured, deliciously scary debut novelHeart-Shaped Box was greeted with the sort of overwhelming critical acclaim that is rare for a work of skin-crawling supernatural terror. It was cited as a Best Book of the Year byAtlanta magazine, the Tampa Tribune, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, and theVillage Voice, to name but a few. Award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling Neil Gaiman ofThe Sandman, The Graveyard Book, and Anansi Boys fame calls Joe Hill’s story of a jaded rock star haunted by a ghost he purchased on the internet, “relentless, gripping, powerful.” Open thisHeart-Shaped Box from two-time Bram Stoker Award-winner Hill if you dare and see what all the well-deserved hoopla is about.

A collector of obscure and macabre artifacts, from a cannibal cookbook to a used hangman's noose, unscrupulous metal band musician Judas Coyne is unable to resist purchasing a ghost over the Internet, which turns out to be the vengeful spirit of his late girlfriend's stepfather. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
