Need Something to Read? Try Heart-Shaped Box

Joe Hill (actually Joe King, son of Stephen) issued a novel a few years back that tells the story of Judas Coyne, a death metal star who’s getting a little long in the tooth.  To pass the time, he collects weird things:  a hangman’s noose, a cannibals’ cookbook, a snuff film.

Then one day, an Internet purchase arrives: a black heart-shaped box.  From that moment on, things go a little, er, pear-shaped.

More on Heart-Shaped Box here.  Thanks to Garnet for the recommendation.
