Publisher's Summary

Eddie Carroll is sick to death of editing the collection America's Best New Horror, sick of reading through second-rate stories in order to find the few "best new". But one afternoon he stumbles across a new story so remarkable that he soon embarks on a quixotic quest to find its author - a quest he may not live to regret.

What the Critics Say

"Most of the stories display the unself-conscious dash that made Hill's novel an intelligent pleasure....Not just for ghost addicts." (Kirkus Reviews)

    Story
    "Disturbing and great!"

    I actually listened to this audio book for the first time a few years back. At the time I didn't know who Joe Hill was and I didn't really listen to audiobooks. I accidentally downloaded from iTunes and fell in love with it immediately! It was so dark and creepy I loved it, I started doing audiobooks because of this book! After a year or so I lost it on my iTunes account, this happened to all the books I bought through iTunes actually (thank you Audible for existing!) but this story stayed with me for years after. Then I bought Horns by Joe and was pleasantly surprised when I found out he wrote Best new Horror too!!! I love all of Joe's books and have not been disappointed yet! This is a short story but a great one!
