Press Release:

Victoria McQueen is a very special girl. On her blue Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she can travel anywhere she likes and retrieve anything lost by simply crossing a rickety, bat-filled covered bridge that magically appears whenever she needs it. But every journey takes its toll.

Charlie Manx is a very evil man. Ageless, creepy, and just a little bit charming, in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith––with the vanity license plate NOS4A2––he takes kidnapped children for rides from which they never return. Slipping out of the everyday world, Manx’s destination for these children is a place he calls “Christmasland,” an astonishing playground of amusements (think Candy Land on acid) where every morning is Christmas morning and you never grow up and you never die. But you are transformed into something absolutely terrifying. Once again, every journey takes its toll.

One day Victoria goes on one of her journeys looking for trouble . . . and finds it. Charlie Manx. But young Vic (as she is called) is the only child ever to escape his grasp.

But that was a lifetime ago. And now the only kid to ever escape Charlie’s unmitigated evil is all grown up and desperate to forget the time she spent with him. But the end of one nightmare is just the beginning of another because Charlie Manx (although believed to have died in a maximum security prison) hasn’t stopped thinking about the exceptional Victoria McQueen, and he hasn’t stopped abducting children and taking them to “Christmasland” in is 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son Wayne.

In a life-and-death battle of wills––her magic pitted against his––Vic McQueen is going to get her son back and destroy Manx once and for all. Or she’ll die trying.

NOS4A2 cements Joe Hill as one of the masters, regardless of genre. After reading this book you’ll find yourself flinching at shadows, constantly checking your rearview mirror, and possibly never looking at a child quite the same way again. Brilliant, suspenseful, disturbing, and terrifying in equal measure.

Joe Hill is the author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns, and the prize-winning story collection 20th Century Ghosts. He is also the Eisner award-winning writer of an ongoing comic book series, Locke & Key. Follow him on Twitter: @joe_hill

Description
NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.

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.

UK – Horns Signing

Comments Off

JOE HILL signs his new novel Horns at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 20th March from 1 – 2pm.

Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a raging headache… and a pair of horns growing from his temples. Ig had been born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star. He’d had it all – and he’d had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic. Then Merrin was gone, raped and murdered, with Ig the only suspect. Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look – and he will find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It’s time for a little revenge; it’s time the devil had his due.

A remarkable new author, Hill has both the distinction and pressure that comes from being the son of ‘Horror Supremo’ Stephen King – but signed with his publisher before they knew the family connection. He’s written one hugely successful novel, Heart-Shaped Box, the comic book series Locke & Key, and is the recipient of several international awards for his stories and novellas.

This will be Joe’s ONLY London event!
