From the New York Times bestselling author of NOS4A2 and Horns comes this award-winning collection of short fiction.

Imogene is young, beautiful . . . and dead, waiting in the Rosebud Theater one afternoon in 1945. . . .

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

John is locked in a basement stained with the blood of half a dozen murdered children, and an antique telephone, long since disconnected, rings at night with calls from the dead. . . .

Nolan knows but can never tell what really happened in the summer of '77, when his idiot savant younger brother built a vast cardboard fort with secret doors leading into other worlds. . . .

The past isn't dead. It isn't even past. . . .

    Big disappointment here

    This book's description says it is a short story collection , the forward in the book talks about a collection so I expected to read a bunch of short ghost stories What I got was one story that was not much longer than the forward and a shorter one ( 6 pages )which is listed as a " bonus story " that is not even the length of most books chapters Yes , the story you get is decent but its not a collection , I felt ripped off by false advertising here and will not buy any more Joe Hill books since I don't know if I am getting a book or might just get a chapter of a book and nothing more
