The publication of author Joe Hill's novel Heart-Shaped Box brought about two things: instant praise from critics and fellow authors alike, and his outing as horror icon Stephen King's son. His latest, 20th Century Ghosts, gives notice that though he is his father's son, Hill is not content to merely sit in King's shadow. After finishing the third story in the collection, "Pop Art", I found myself re-energized as a reader. It's been awhile since I've read anything that's reminded me on so many levels why I fell in love with books and stories to begin with. This guy's a great writer, and 20th Century Ghosts is a wonderful collection that shines.

From official release/information:

From author's website: 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS is big enough to get lost in, a maze filled with exits into a vast country of the surreal. Showcasing an assortment of dazzling ideas, GHOSTS is irresistible, addictive fun
