The spine-tingling, bone-chilling novel of supernatural suspense from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman and Horns—now an AMC original series starring Zachary Quinto, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Ashleigh Cummings. "A masterwork of horror."— Time Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Charles Talent Manx has a gift of his own. He likes to take children for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the vanity plate NOS4A2. In the Wraith, he and his innocent guests can slip out of the everyday world and onto hidden roads that lead to an astonishing playground of amusements he calls Christmasland. The journey across the highway of Charlie's twisted imagination transforms his precious passengers, leaving them as terrifying and unstoppable as their benefactor. Then comes the day when Vic goes looking for trouble...and finds her way to Charlie. That was a lifetime ago. Now, the only kid ever to escape Charlie's evil is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx hasn't stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. On the road again, he won't slow down until he's taken his revenge. He's after something very special—something Vic can never replace. As a life-and-death battle of wills builds, Vic McQueen prepares to destroy Charlie once and for all—or die trying.

"Bicycles have more cultural identities than many realize, functioning not only as literal vehicles in a text but also as "vehicles" for that text's themes, ideas, and critiques. In the late nineteenth century the bicycle was seen as a way for the wealthy urban elite to reconnect with nature and for women to gain a measure of personal freedom, while during World War II it became a utilitarian tool of the French Resistance and in 1970s China stood for wealth and modernization. Lately it has functioned variously as the favored ideological steed of environmentalists, a means of community bonding and aesthetic self-expression in hip hop, and the ride of choice for bike messenger-idolizing urban hipsters. Culture on Two Wheels analyzes the shifting cultural significance of the bicycle by examining its appearances in literary, musical, and cinematic works spanning three continents and more than 125 years of history. Bringing together essays by a variety of cyclists and scholars with myriad angles of approach, this collection highlights the bicycle's flexibility as a signifier and analyzes the appearance of bicycles in canonical and well-known texts such as Samuel Beckett's modernist novel Molloy, the Oscar-winning film Breaking Away, and various Stephen King novels and stories, as well as in lesser-known but equally significant texts, such as the celebrated Russian director Andrei Tarkovsky's film Sacrifice and Elizabeth Robins Pennell's nineteenth-century travelogue A Canterbury Pilgrimage, the latter of which traces the route of Chaucer's pilgrims via bicycle.

New York Times Bestselling Author DON'T SLOW DOWN "One of America's finest horror writers" (Time magazine) takes you on a thrilling plunge into darkness. . . . The New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns returns with a new novel of supernatural suspense that will have you flinching at shadows and checking the rearview mirror again and again . . . "A major player in 21st-century fantastic fiction. "-Washington Post What's good stays good, no matter how much of a beating it takes. . . . Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her dayglo blue 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. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability because she knows that no one would believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself. And she knows it isn't free. Each time she makes a trip across that bridge, a piece of herself is lost. But Vic isn't the only one with a special gift. 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 playground of amusements he calls Christmasland. Mile by mile, their journey across the highway of Charlie's twisted imagination transforms his precious passengers, leaving them as terrifying and unstoppable as their benefactor. Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble-and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now, the only kid to ever escape his unmitigated evil is all grown up and desperate to forget. But the end of one nightmare is just the beginning of another . . . because Charlie Manx hasn't stopped thinking about the exceptional Victoria McQueen. He's on the road again and he's picked up a new passenger: Vic's own son. In a life-and-death battle of wills-her magic pitted against his-Vic McQueen is going to get her son back and destroy Manx once and for all. Or she'll die trying. . . . Joe Hill is the New York Times bestselling author of Horns and Heart-Shaped Box, and the prize-winning story collection 20th Century Ghosts. He is also the Eisner-award winning writer of an ongoing comic book series, Locke & Key. Follow him on Twitter @joe_hill. Praise for Horns: "[HORNS is] a creepy murder mystery, a tragic love triangle, and a sweetly wistful coming-of-age story. It's the kind of book that has you laughing on one page, crying on another and making sure the doors and windows are safely locked on a third." Miami Herald "A compelling chronicler of human nature's continual war between good and evil." - Providence Journal-Bulletin "[Horns is] devilishly good. . . . Hill is a terrific writer with a great imagination. He has a special talent for taking us and his characters to very weird places." - USA Today "[A] compulsively readable supernatural thriller...Hill spins a story that's both morbidly amusing and emotionally resonant. The explanations for Ig's weird travails won't satisfy every reader, but few will dispute that Hill has negotiated the sophomore slump." - Publishers Weekly "Horns by Joe Hill is so crazy that it's great-a hell of a ride (no pun intended) that will keep you up until three in the morning...[it is] richly entertaining, relentlessly suspenseful, with compelling characters. Although Horns is extremely gripping, Joe Hill proves once again that he is a horror writer for intellectuals...Part of the appeal of the novel is its dark humor and unremitting wit of its prose. But here's the really good part: You will be shocked. You will laugh. And if you are like me, you will even cry." - www.huffingtonpost.com ""Darkly comic in places, touching in others, chilling on occassion." - Valdosta Daily Times "Horns is thoroughly enjoyable and often original..a richly nuanced story. Fire and brimstone have rarely looked this good. " - Los Angeles Times "Horns is a well wrought tale with intellectual merit. Not only are we entertained, we are challenged to think as well." - New York Journal of Books "Horns is a pitchfork-packing, prodigal son's take on religion.But the real meat of the story dissects man's relationship with good and evil wihtout sacrificing a bit of suspense.Horns is a mesmerizing page-turner." - Tulsa World "A devilish, ingeniously designed story that positions Hill in the same realm as Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Lethem, and Stephen King." - Pittsburgh Tribune "A major player in 21st-century fantastic fiction. . . . Hill's subject matter is steeped in the pop culture and tabloid detritus of the last 50 years: serial killers, abducted children, families living on the fault lines between divorce and poverty, horror movies and supernatural fiction. Yet his real focus is an almost obsessively nuanced exploration of the nature of American manhood." - Washington Post "A satisfying and entertaining book." - www.npr.org on HORNS "As the plot builds through flashbacks and clever exposition, Ig's true nature reveals itself, and the reader is left questioning the traditional border between good and evil....Highly recommended, particularly for fans of Clive Barker and Christopher Moore." - Library Journal "Fire and brimstone have rarely looked so good." - Orlando Sentinel "Hill is particularly good at capturing fear from a victim's point of view . . . He excels at spiking his narratives with a potent mix of emotion and fright." - Time Out New York "Hill's survey of the question of suffering is a wild ride, as filled with thrills as his hero's headlong plunge down to a dark and dazzling river." - Seattle Times "HORNS is thoroughly enjoyable and often original..a richly nuanced story that traces the catastrophes of adult lives gone wrong to the complex and fraught relationships of children. Ig's metamorphosis, meanwhile, is portrayed with sparkling good humor. Every dusty old joke and aphorism with the devil bearing the brunt is dragged into the mix. There's sympathy for him, he wears a blue dress, he's out to get his due. There are pitchforks -- more than one of them -- showing up at key moments in the story. All of which would be unbearable if it weren't handled with such campy glee, and with such respect for the tradition of Satan as anti-hero, tale-teller and trickster. The fact that the nature of the protagonist's deal with the devil is a mystery even to him makes for a refreshing take on the morality fables that usually feature Old Scratch and his ilk. Fire and brimstone have rarely looked this good. " - Los Angeles Times
