    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:

    I know it's tempting, but...don't do it.

    You think you know what "this changes everything" means, but you don't.

    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.

    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    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?
    We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring
    will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

    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.
