Les vurderinger

«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»

LOCUS

«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.»

, Ross Sutcliffe

«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.»
