Check Out Horror Anthology Book Ghost Box, Edited by Patton Oswalt


Comedian Patton Oswalt may not be the first name you think of when you think of horror, but that may all change soon as Oswalt has just edited “Ghost Box”, a new collection of individually bound horror stories from Hingston & Olsen Publishing.

The stories are a mixture of classics and hidden gems, from emerging writers all the way up to George R. R. Martin, the mind behind HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

You can order your copy right HERE.

Patton Oswalt about the project:

So, I’ve edited and helped produce a horror anthology. The geeky 15 year-old who used to read Kirby McCauley’s DARK FORCES and THE PLAYBOY BOOK OF HORROR AND THE SUPERNATURAL and Harlan Ellison’s DANGEROUS VISIONS gets to provide reading material for other geeky 15 year-olds.

And I got to work with Hingston & Olson, an amazing small publishing house that, every year, puts together their short story advent calendar. 25 new (and some old) short stories that you open, each, one at a time, leading up to Christmas Day.

We’re starting the inaugural Ghost Box with 13. Start reading on October 18th, I guess. And there’s a little surprise underneath the final story. You’ll see.

They didn’t make a lot of these. Their short story advent calendars all sell out. And they are now much sought-after collector’s items. The Ghost Box will sell out too.

Dim the lights. And open it up.
