Heart-Shaped Box (Signed Limited Edition in Slipcase) by Joe Hill
15 March 2006
First Edition/ First Printing Hardback Limited SIGNED AND NUMBERED Slipcased Edition. Limited to 1300 copies only. Signed directly on the page. The slipcase is a beautiful design and foil embossed. The copy is BRAND NEW AND STILL SEALED so the number is unknown. Fine condition with very slight bump to one corner of the slipcase. Synopsis 'Buy my stepfather's ghost' read the e-mail. So Jude did. He bought the dead man's suit, delivered in a heart-shaped box, because he wanted it: because his fans ate up that kind of story. It was perfect for his collection: the genuine skulls and the bones, the real honest-to-God snuff movie, the occult books and all the rest of the paraphanalia that goes along with his kind of hard/goth rock. But the rest of his collection doesn't make the house feel cold. The bones don't make the dogs bark; the movie doesn't make Jude feel as if he's being watched. And none of the artefacts bring a vengeful old ghost with black scribbles over his eyes out of the shadows to chase Jude out of his home, and make him run for his life . . .
