VURDERING

Les vurderinger

«The selections range from the mundane to the surreal, with a strong emphasis on the kind of horror tale perfected by Ray Bradbury, Peter Straub and Stephen King.»

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

«Hill's stories are visceral and nasty in places, but never gratuitous. The collection as a whole is polished and well written. Even the most macabre themes are handled exceptionally well, so one story ever feels exploitative or trashy. Joe Hill is definitely one to watch.»

, SCI-FI NOW

«Each of these chilling tales arrests you from the opening sentence and leads you - trustingly, thanks to the simple mastery of the story-teller - into a place of gulping fear.»

DAILY MAIL

«[An] inventive collection . . . brave and astute.»

NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

«Hill's best stories veer away from the well-trodden creep shows and back alleys of genre writing into more dangerous territory: suburban basements, ball fields and schoolyards.»

WASHINGTON POST

«Fully developed characters with complex emotional lives enhance the 14 stories in Joe Hill's extraordinary collection ... There's not a false note or disappointing effort in this volume.»

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

«The collection of short stories ranges from creepy to sweet, with an impressive arsenal of tactics to attack your psyche.»

BOSTON GLOBE

«[Hill] displays consummate skill in a variety of genres . . . Amusing, moving, horrifying-Ghosts runs the full spectrum.»

USA TODAY

«Alternately sad, scary, strange and at times even sweet, these tales will haunt you long after you've read them.»

PARADE

«One of the best [horror] collections of the year. Hill is a relative newcomer who consistently creates creepy, very disturbing stories»
