NOS4A2: A Novel

NOS4A2: A Novel

"Imagine, if you will, a wonderland where every day is Christmas. A wonderland with a ten-story tall tree in the middle—decked “to the nines” with ornaments—surrounded by a super-sized Ferris wheel that fits a dozen people per car, and a wooden roller coaster. A wonderland where you drink hot cocoa every day and listen to holiday tunes such as "Silver Bells," "Feliz Navidad," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," among others. If you can’t, Charlie Manx sure can. You see, this wonderland—or as he calls it, “Christmasland”—exists in his mind. Charlie Manx, a serial child abductor, has been roaming the country in his Rolls Royce Wraith (license plate number NOS4A2) for many years now looking to recruit and bring children to Christmasland. Once there, they do not return.

Happy reading."

NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns. Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country. Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.” Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son. Exclusive to the print editions of NOS4A2 are more than 15 illustrations by award-winning Locke & Key artist Gabriel Rodríguez.
