This e-short story from the New York Times bestselling author of NOS4A2 and Horns now features an excerpt from Joe Hill’s novel The Fireman.

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. . . .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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
