About Book Heart-Shaped Box

“Wild, mesmerizing, perversely witty….A Valentine from hell.”
 —Janet Maslin, New York Times

The publication of Joe Hill's beautifully textured, deliciously scary debut novel Heart-Shaped Box was greeted with {the sort|the type|the kind} of overwhelming critical acclaim {that is|that's} rare for a work of skin-crawling supernatural terror. {It was|It had been|It absolutely was} cited as a Best Book of the Year by Atlanta magazine, the Tampa Tribune, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, and the Village Voice, {to name|to mention|to call} but a few. Award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling Neil Gaiman of The SandmanThe Graveyard Book, and Anansi Boys fame calls Joe Hill's story of a jaded rock star haunted {by a|with a|by way of a} ghost he purchased {on the internet|on the web|on the net}, “relentless, gripping, powerful.” Open this Heart-Shaped Box from two-time Bram Stoker Award-winner Hill {if you|in the event that you} dare and see what {all the|all of the|most of the} well-deserved hoopla is about.

Aging death-metal rock legend Judas Coyne is {a collector|an enthusiast} of the macabre: a cookbook for cannibals...a used hangman's noose...a snuff film. But nothing he possesses {is as|is really as|can be as} unique or as dreadful as his latest purchase off the Internet: a one-of-a-kind curiosity that arrives at his door in {a black|a dark} heart-shaped box...a musty dead man's suit still inhabited by the spirit of its late owner. And now everywhere Judas Coyne goes, the old man is there—watching, waiting, dangling {a razor|a blade} blade on {a chain|a string|a sequence} from his bony hand.
