The winner of the Bram Stoker, British Fantasy, and International Horror Guild Awards, a compilation of imaginative, surreal, and macabre short fiction by the author of Heart-Shaped Box includes the tales of Imogene, the legendary ghost of the Rosebud theater, and Francis, an unhappy, hopeless human turned giant locust seeking revenge on his Nevada hometown.

From the Publisher:

Imogene is young, beautiful . . . and dead, waiting in the Rosebud Theater one afternoon in 1945. . . .

Francis was human once, but now he's an eight-foot-tall locust, and everyone in Calliphora will tremble when they hear him sing. . . .

John is locked in a basement stained with the blood of half a dozen murdered children, and an antique telephone, long since disconnected, rings at night with calls from the dead. . . .

Nolan knows but can never tell what really happened in the summer of '77, when his idiot savant younger brother built a vast cardboard fort with secret doors leading into other worlds. . . .

The past isn't dead. It isn't even past. . . .

Annotation:
Joe Hill is a master of the short story. And like his literary forbearer Edgar Allen Poe (and sometimes like his famous father, Stephen King), Hill focuses his concise energies on tales that unnerve, reorient, surprise, and creep out. Each of the 15 stories in 20TH CENTURY GHOST has its own focus, its own emotional charge, and its own curious hero--a towering locust, a recovering superhero, an inflatable kid, a movie-buff ghost who haunts an old theater. Not your run-of-the-mill genre fiction writer, Hill is a creative literary artist with the skills to scare the you-know-what out of his readers.
Author Bio
Joe Hill
Joe Hill was born Joseph Hillstrom King, the son of horror superstar Stephen King. Though Hill followed in his father's science-fiction and horror footsteps, he chose to write under the surname Hill in an attempt to prove his worth outside of his famous family name. Before a 2006 Variety article exposed his true identity, he had received numerous fellowships and prizes for his short stories. His 2007 horror novel debut, HEART-SHAPED BOX, became a New York Times bestseller, preparing him to assume his father's mantle as a writer of chilling and psychologically rich genre fiction.
