    Killian is a drifter, a rail-car-rider, in the summer of '35, when no one can find work and even fewer make a living. But jumping off a train a little too soon one afternoon, he finds himself at the breakfast table of a recently widowed woman, and the recipient of an unexpected gift.
    ©2005, 2007 Joe Hill (P)2007 HarperCollins Publishers


    "Most of the stories display the unself-conscious dash that made Hill's novel an intelligent pleasure....Not just for ghost addicts." ( Kirkus Reviews)

    i don't get it

    i'm glad i only spent 69 cents on this; the story is like a long joke that, when the punch line comes, i don't get. it's not supposed to be a joke, of course - it's supposedly a ghost story - but it's constructed just like a joke, consisting of a long lead-in followed by a punch line, if you will, on which the whole thing evidently hinges...but there's nothing revealed in the punch line; there's no surprise or anything else i didn't see coming. the big scary "sting" sound after the final line makes me think the final line was supposed to send chills up my spine, but it didn't; it couldn't have. it was like someone telling me two plus two equals four. nothing there that i didn't already know. what did i miss here?

    the story wasn't masterfully read, either. the reading wasn't horrible, but it was kind of amateurish and over-the-top. i only gave it two stars instead of one because it was effective in creating a certain atmosphere for a while there, but for me it was not an effective story. not really worth $0.69; i would NOT recommend spending a credit on it.

    Beautifully written!

    This story is a true adventure into the macabre. It leaves you with a truly Eerie feeling that you normally only feel when things are on the cusp of going terribly wrong in dreams.

    Not impressed

    I'm hoping that the other stories in this collection are better. I'm not sure however after hearing this one if I will bother to give it a chance. I guess this is supposed to be a post-modern ghost story - with no ghosts, no mystery. However the lack of the usual elements of a ghost story are not made up for by what I had hoped - things like poignancy or thoughtfulness. So - surprise surprise - the reader expects it to be scary and then it's not - but what is it instead? If it gave you a more significant emotion, now that would be an impressive feat - but instead it just ends up seeming like it is missing the most important ingredients (and scary music is not one of them!).

    Not the best

    I didn't get this story either. Was it a ghost story? No. Was it creepy? No. Did it make sense? Definitely no. Don't waste your time.
