Publisher's Summary

There's no end to the things that terrify Homer Feltz: tinfoil, fast food, his shopaholic Aunt Mandy. Only his father, manager of a disastrously bad major-league team, seems to understand him, and offers him any refuge from a world quickly becoming too big, too grown-up, and too crowded with everyday horrors for Homer to manage.

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)

    "Very good!"

    This is an interesting tale about a deeply troubled boy. This is dealing with the horror from within.
