Publisher Description

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

 

The publication of Joe Hill’s beautifully textured, deliciously scary debut novel Heart-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 by Atlanta magazine, the Tampa Tribune, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, and the Village Voice, to name but a few. Award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling Neil Gaiman of The 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 this Heart-Shaped Box from two-time Bram Stoker Award-winner Hill if you dare and see what all the well-deserved hoopla is about.

"Two great stories by two of my favorite authors, Richard Matheson and Stephen King, and Joe Hill (who is Stephen King's son), who I am just now "getting to know." The stories were short, edge-of-your-seat, OMFG, wide-eyed misadventures of road raging truck drivers. Good stuff! "

Quotes

  • “Judas Coyne is a rock star who collects Goth girlfriends and macabre objects. Stephen Lang portrays him with a cool cockiness, his voice reflecting his certainty that those around seek his approval and attention…Threats of death and destruction are intensified by Lang’s tight tones as Jude and his brave girlfriend combat the supernatural.”

    — AudioFile
  • “Erupting out of mundane surroundings, the shocks in Hill’s riveting debut novel can be lurid and blood-drenched, or as quietly chilling as a casual phone call from an old, dead friend.”

    — Entertainment Weekly
  • “Wild, mesmerizing, perversely witty…A Valentine from hell.”

    — New York Times
  • “[A] cardiac hazard of a first novel.”

    — Chicago Tribune
  • “Heart-Shaped Box is a fine mix of psychological terror and gruesome horror…Remarkable, moving, a well-crafted.”

    — Denver Post

    " Duel by Matheson is a classic short story that was the basis for Steven Speilberg's first movie. King and his son Hill take their own shot at the same plot with Throttle. The contrast is amazing. What a neat writing exercise. "

    " WOOTWOOTWOOT!! Stephen King and son Joe Hill's [named after THE JH:] nod to Matheson is most excellent. Bikers, rather than Matheson's salesman, give us a less subtle - but very effective - message. The irony in the ending is twistier than both deadly roads combined. "
