About the Book:

“An inventive collection… brave and astute.” — New York Times Book Review (Editor’s Choice)

From New York Times bestselling author Joe Hill comes the award-winning collection of short fiction that launched him into the bright lights of the literary world’s big stage fifteen years ago.

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…

Arthur Roth is a lonely kid with big ideas and a gift for attracting abuse…

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…
