September Empty
PostSubject: September   September Icon_minitime8/29/2008, 9:39 pm

I figured since August is pretty much gone, & I've not been so active lately, that I would post September's book o' the month! *sly smile*

This is for all you horror/metaphysical lovers out there. It's called "Heart Shaped Box" by Joe Hill.

"Joe Hill" is just a pen name. He's actually Stephen King's son. Even without that little piece of information, I was enthralled with his writing. His story is a bit more stylized than his father's prose, which tends to be more on the folksy side dispite their genre.

Barns & Noble synopsis:

"Sooner or later, the dead catch up . . .

Judas Coyne was a collector. The bizarre, the uncanny, the grotesque. A cookbook for cannibals. A used hangmanís noose. A snuff film. Many of these objects were gifts from the black-clad fans who made his metal band a legend and made him rich.

But not all. When his personal assistant told him there was a ghost for sale on the Internet, Jude knew he had to have it for his private collection, didnít think twice. He should have. Jude has spent a lifetime evading ghosts -- of an abusive father, of the bandmates he betrayed, of Anna, the suicidal girl he loved and abandoned. But this spirit is different. This one means to chase him to the edge of sanity.

His new acquisition -- delivered to his doorstep in a black heart-shaped box -- is the restless soul of Annaís vengeful stepdaddy. Craddock McDermott swore he would settle with Jude for ruining his daughterís life. Soon, everywhere Jude turns, Craddock is there: behind the bedroom door; in Judeís restored vintage Mustang; outside his window; on his widescreen TV. Waiting -- with a gleaming razor blade on a chain dangling from one bony hand.

If ever there was a case of caveat emptor, this is it . . . "
