Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre: a cookbook for cannibals . . . a used hangman's noose . . . a snuff film. An aging death-metal rock god, his taste for the unnatural is as widely known to his legions of fans as the notorious excesses of his youth. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, an item for sale on the Internet, a thing so terribly strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. I will "sell" my stepfather's ghost to the highest bidder. . . . For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. He isn't afraid. He has spent a lifetime coping with ghosts—of an abusive father, of the lovers he callously abandoned, of the bandmates he betrayed. What's one more? But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost, no benign conversation piece. It's the real thing. And suddenly the suit's previous owner is everywhere: behind the bedroom door . . . seated in Jude's restored vintage Mustang . . . standing outside his window . . . staring out from his widescreen TV. Waiting—with a gleaming razor blade on a chain dangling from one bony hand. . . . A multiple-award winner for his short fiction, author Joe Hill immediately vaults into the top echelon of dark fantasists with a blood-chilling roller-coaster ride of a novel, a masterwork brimming with relentless thrills and acid terror.

'Buy my stepfather's ghost' read the e-mail. So Jude did. He bought it, in the shape of 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 ...

I've always played it safe. Forever the good girl, staying within the lines of morality. But it's time for a change. Time to leave all of that behind.I know he's forbidden, off limits to me, but I don't care. I've found the one indulgence I will treat myself to without regrets.Chapter One My brother, Roman, my own personal Jesus at times, is always pushing and sometimes shoving me to follow my dreams; no matter how insane or fucking crazy they are. He's been right here in my corner, cheering me on. So of course, when I dropped out of college a year ago to pursue my dream of owning my own business, I recruited Roman to help me break the news to our parents. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, mom and dad were somewhat receptive and offered me their spider infested basement to set up shop. Living upstairs would make commuting a fucking breeze. Even Roman decided to take some time off from getting his degree in business, to babysit me, and therefore becoming my partner in crime. With a few modifications and a shit load of elbow grease, we were off and running; I couldn't have done it without him. It's been one hell of a wild ride but business is good, so good that we've outgrown the cramped, cold and damp little space under our parents' house. Finally ready to break free of the Dungeon, we hired on a few more hands to help out. Roman being the cheap, penny pinching, no holds barred, negotiating, asshole he is; we took a vote. He was nominated four to one to take on the headache of pounding the pavement for a new home for our thriving little Twinkled Designs. It didn't take Roman long to hunt down the perfect location in the old historic district of San Francisco. Newly renovated and freshly placed and on the market, The Manor had a lot of available office space for lease, and if we acted fast we could be the first to occupy a spot in the building. Roman, not well known for being patient or considerate of others, didn't want to wait, and insisted I get my lazy

The wondrous Aimee Bender conjures the lush and moving story of a girl whose magical gift is really a devastating curse. On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents’ attention, bites into her mother’s homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother’s emotions in the cake. She discovers this gift to her horror, for her mother—her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother—tastes of despair and desperation. Suddenly, and for the rest of her life, food becomes a peril and a threat to Rose. The curse her gift has bestowed is the secret knowledge all families keep hidden—her mother’s life outside the home, her father’s detachment, her brother’s clash with the world. Yet as Rose grows up she learns to harness her gift and becomes aware that there are secrets even her taste buds cannot discern. The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake is a luminous tale about the enormous difficulty of loving someone fully when you know too much about them. It is heartbreaking and funny, wise and sad, and confirms Aimee Bender’s place as “a writer who makes you grateful for the very existence of language” (San Francisco Chronicle). BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Aimee Bender's The Color Master.
