"Horrendously read-able, deliciously sickening and elegantly twisted, Joe Hill’s new collection of stories range from elegiac pulp to full-on horror."

Horrendously read-able, deliciously sickening and elegantly twisted, Joe Hill’s new collection of stories range from elegiac pulp to full-on horror. If your appetite isn’t whetted by big-game hunting in fairyland with Mr Tumnus in the cross-hairs, how about a wistful tale of childhood friendships, sibling rivalry and prehistoric monsters in New England? There is awesome skill on show here, and not just in the chills and shocks department. The horrors of nuclear Armageddon, viewed from a passenger plane, is brought home by romance and micro-aggressions among the passengers. And before you catch it on Netflix, the story of a pair of good Samaritans rescuing a lost child in tall grass is a masterpiece of suspense and setting: easy to get lost in . . .
