Many fans of horror films are also avid fans of the literary world of the genre with bookshelves lined with terror-filled tales right next to the shelves housing our collections of DVDs and Blu-Rays, and we eagerly anticipate the next releases from our favorite authors just as cinemaphiles foam at the mouth for the newest flick from their cinematic heroes. One novel that many of us are stoked as hell for is Joe Hill's upcoming NOS4A2, and today we're sharing how you can get your grubby little hands on a copy signed by the author himself!
In case you need reminding, Joe Hill is the man responsible for HORNS, a brilliantly-crafted supernatural thriller that will soon be invading cinemas from director Alexandre Aja and starring Daniel Radcliffe. In this guys humble opinion, HORNS is the best novel I've read in the past 5 years and was my introduction to Hill's work. Hill also wrote the novel HEART SHAPED BOX and the incredible short story collection 20th CENTURY GHOSTS. So far the man is batting .1000 and I fully expect NOS4A2 to meet (and possibly exceed) all expectations. So what's NOS4A2 about?
Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.
Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.”
Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son.
Sounds good, huh? So how do you get ahold of an autographed copy, you say? Hill has been sharing on his Twitter that Water Street Books will have you covered, offering signed copies of his latest work along with his previous books (as long as one of the books you purchase is NOS4A2).
