    Default Ghost Box II from Hingston & Olsen

    Contains "Gray Matter" by King; individually bound booklet.

    The Ghost Box returns, like a mummy or a batman, to once again make your pupils dilate and the hair on your arms stand straight up—it’s another collection of individually bound scary stories, edited and introduced by comedian and spooky specialist Patton Oswalt.



    Ghost Box II includes stories by:
    • Gertrude Atherton
    • Louisa Baldwin
    • Robert Hugh Benson
    • Tananarive Due
    • Harlan Ellison
    • Janet Fox
    • Patricia Highsmith
    • Joe Hill
    • Stephen King
    • Julius Long
    • Michael Shea

    Like last year, each handmade box features a matte-black finish, an iridescent colour-shifting foil stamp on top, and a magnetized lid. The booklets once again have debossed design details and are bound with brass staples. This year’s edition also includes a ribbon bookmark, of which we’re pretty fond.

    “Because when we’re terrified about the enormity of the universe’s indifference, and our smallness in the face of it, we tell stories. When we’re powerless to shape and control our fear, we tell stories. When we feel alone, we tell stories.”
    — FROM PATTON OSWALT'S INTRODUCTION

    All looks quite nice - extraordinary, really - to say the least.

    I'm intrigued by this bit:

    Eliza dear, you know, there's something I should say

    I never really loved you, but I'll miss you anyway

    He is an aficionado of many things. He did an impromptu Star Wars monologue on Parks and Recreation. He's big into horror, fantasy, sci-fi. I think he knew Harlan Ellison personally. I follow him on Twitter -- he's a fascinating guy.

    Correct. I ordered the first box last year, and was so impressed by it that I immediately ordered this second box when I received the email this morning.

    He is apparently also contributing to the book about the "Stand by me" movie, with essays by Josh Boone and Marilyn Manson.
    I would also not be surprised if a Bev Vincent may be contributing to it?

    This looks fun. I ordered the Ghost Box Bundle- the price really isn't bad when considering that it's listed in Canadian dollars (about $65 USD including shipping).

    Has anyone found what Joe Hill has in this?

    Mine arrived yesterday...another fine job by H & O. I really enjoyed last year’s box, and this one looks to be just as good.

    Did people get email on ghost box#3? I didn’t realize they had this planned as a trilogy - and a special signed limited edition - by oswalt. I have the first two - so I might as well round out the trilogy.

    I did not.

    Ordered mine! Super cool that they did a limited edition for the last release.

    Earlier this year they did a limited edition of a small true-crime book, Fear on the Family Farm. It turned out really well! They have a neat aesthetic. I hope they decide to do more books
    Please help me find:
    RED SNAKESKIN HORNS
    from Suntup Editions

    The Citadel of the Autarch, #100
    Chimera II
    from Centipede Press

    I didn’t get the email, either, so thanks so much for announcing the new Box. I ordered the other two from them, so would have been very disappointed to miss this third and final Box. But now: ordered! :-)

    EDIT: Just checked my email for the first time today, and, sure enough, there was the email notice from H&O.

    Ordered and super ticked-off I had no idea about the sold-out limited edition, which is pretty much the story of my life. Oh well.

    I was surprised that limited edition sold out pretty quickly - but I don’t think there was a limit on them 1 so they might pop up if someone ordered more than one. I only ordered one copy - sorry. Glad I didn’t wait on it though

    Thanks all for the heads up. I missed the SL but snagged the normal printing before they ran out.

    I also received the email from H&O yesterday and totally missed it, didn't even see it hit the inbox, probably would have missed the boat entirely if it weren't for you lot.

    With all of the books I am currently making payments on, I am ALMOST glad I didn't get one, but not quite.
