MAINE: Joe Hill a/k/a Stephen King's son. - "20Th Century Ghosts"

The Author of "20th Century Ghosts."

- Mr. Joe Hill -

Imogene is young and beautiful.

She kisses like a movie star and knows everything about every film ever made.

She's also dead and waiting in the Rosebud Theater for Alec Sheldon one afternoon in 1945. . . .

Arthur Roth is a lonely kid with big ideas and a gift for attracting abuse. It isn't easy to make friends when you're the only inflatable boy in town. . . .

Francis is unhappy.

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

John Finney is locked in a basement that's stained with the blood of half a dozen other murdered children.

In the cellar with him is an antique telephone, long since disconnected, but which rings at night with calls from the dead. . . . . . . .
Joe Hill is the author of the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller "Heart-Shaped Box", a two-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, and a past recipient of the World Fantasy Award.
His stories have appeared in a variety of journals and Year's Best collections.
He calls New England home.

Joe will be Promoting 20th Century Ghosts
