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.

Critic Reviews

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

I have read a lot of stories

Joe Hill rarely disappoints. This is an unusual story with a cryptic ending in which a bully gets his just desserts! An older brother with a younger with special needs and a mysterious arrangement of boxes in which you can get lost!

Joe Hill

Joe never fails to entertain me. He has the ability to connect me with a character just like his father does. The whole family is talented as all heck, let's not forget Tabby & Owen!

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.
