Publisher's Summary

Nolan Lerner is guilty. His past is a thing choked with secrets, blood � and sunflowers. Only Nolan knows what really happened that summer in 1977, when his younger brother, an idiot savant named Morris, built a vast cardboard fort with secret doors inside, doors leading into other worlds.

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)

    "Absolutely awesome!"

    Joe Hill is truly one of the greatest writers of new horror today. The stories come across as if they're scenes out of troubled dreams.

    "how fun!"

    I really enjoyed this story. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. It was well worth my time. Joe Hill has his own style and once I got over the fact that he isn't his dad I really liked his own unique style.
