The box is Jack Ketchum's 1994 Bram Stoker Award-winning story. It has been anthologized, reprinted, and now it is available for the first time in digital.
This is a live recording of the author, narrating his award-winning story, in the way only Jack Ketchum can....

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
I AM NOT HUNGRY
This is not scary, like most of Ketchum's writing. It is depressing. I like JK's writing, but this did not make me HUNGRY for more.

Great short story. could have been a great novel. it grabbed me right away. It also made me sad when it ended.
Always open to something new, but my favorite genres are horror, sci-fi/fantasy with more of a leaning toward fantasy.
I'm not sure why so many people are confused by what was in the box since the son tells his father exactly what was in the box. This story might be thought of as a lesson along the lines of Albert Camus's philosophy and the key to understanding it is to contrast the fathers ravenous hunger at the end with his children's lack of hunger throughout.
