Book Description
 

HEART-SHAPED BOX by Joe Hill - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Joe Hill.

Heart-Shaped Box is quite simply, the best debut horror novel since Clive Barker's Damnation Game twenty years ago. It's the kind of book that the overworked adjectives people use on book jackets-relentless, gripping, powerful, a genuine page turner - were really meant to describe, for it's all of those things and enormously smart besides. A genuinely scary novel filled with people you care about the kind of book that still stays in your mind after you've turned over the final page. I loved it unreservedly." - Neil Gaimon, New York Times best selling author of Anasasi Boys and Coraline

While Joe Hill is not a pseudonym, it is his first and middle name. His father Stephen knows him as Joe Hill King. The next generation of King authors will take your breath away, as much as the first.

Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre: a cookbook for cannibals . . . a used hangman's noose . . . a snuff film. An aging death-metal rock god, his taste for the unnatural is as widely known to his legions of fans as the notorious excesses of his youth. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, an item for sale on the Internet, a thing so terribly strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet.

"I will "sell" my stepfather's ghost to the highest bidder. . . ."

For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. He isn't afraid. He has spent a lifetime coping with ghosts - of an abusive father, of the lovers he callously abandoned, of the bandmates he betrayed. What's one more?

But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost, no benign conversation piece. It's the real thing.

And suddenly the suit's previous owner is everywhere: behind the bedroom door . . . seated in Jude's restored vintage Mustang . . . standing outside his window . . . staring out from his widescreen TV. Waiting - with a gleaming razor blade on a chain dangling from one bony hand. . . .

A multiple-award winner for his short fiction, author Joe Hill immediately vaults into the top echelon of dark fantasists with a blood-chilling roller-coaster ride of a novel, a masterwork brimming with relentless thrills and acid terror.
