Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of NOS4A2 and Horns comes this e-short story—from Joe Hill’s award-winning collection 20th Century Ghosts.

Imogene is young and beautiful. She kisses like a movie star and knows everything about every film ever made. She's also dead and waiting in the Rosebud Theater for Alec Sheldon one afternoon in 1945. . . .

Arthur Roth is a lonely kid with big ideas and a gift for attracting abuse. It isn't easy to make friends when you're the only inflatable boy in town. . . .

Francis is unhappy. Francis was human once, but that was then. Now he's an eight-foot-tall locust and everyone in Calliphora will tremble when they hear him sing. . . .

John Finney is locked in a basement that's stained with the blood of half a dozen other murdered children. In the cellar with him is an antique telephone, long since disconnected, but which rings at night with calls from the dead. . . .

For those who don't know, Joe Hill is the son of Stephen King and it shows. Hill's books move faster than King's and are just as disturbing. This one gave me the creeps as the descriptions were so vivid and painted an eerie picture in my mind. Two short horror tales with Best New Horror being my fav. Well worth it! -Michael

I like Joe Hill but it seems whem he and Janna Hill collaborate it is always a littel better. I guess she adds the feminine touch. I would like to meet them someday and ask where these stories come from,
