Subterranean Press is proud to announce Joe Hill’s first epic novel, a vampire road novel that clocks in at over 800 manuscript pages.

Charlie Manx is a very bad man with a very special car—a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith, with the vanity plate NOS4A2. Charlie takes children for rides in his car, all the way to Christmasland. Christmasland is a magic place, a place just for children.

Victoria McQueen has a gift for finding lost things. If she rides her bike through the Shorter Way Bridge, she can find anything that’s lost. She’s also the only person ever to have escaped from Charlie Manx. Charlie may have died, but he hasn’t forgotten Victoria, and he takes her son for a ride in his car.

Vic McQueen will do anything to save her son, but the Shorter Way Bridge has become a more perilous crossing than it was when she was a child. And who wouldn’t want to have Christmas… forever? Sleigh bells ring….

In his terrifying new novel, NOS4A2, New York Times bestselling author Joe Hill makes sure you’ll never listen to Christmas carols without a shiver again. But more than just horror, NOS4A2 is a story of strength, of magic, of family, and the costs of love. It’s about finding what is lost, even when what we lose is ourselves.

It also includes an alternate ending to the novel, as well as illustrations, in both black and white and color, by Hill’s long-term collaborator on the award-winning comic, Locke & Key, Gabriel Rodriguez.

The Lettered edition will be one of our more elaborate productions, including a special binding, as well as a custom made autopsy bone mallet, Charlie Manx’s weapon of choice, housed in the tray case.

Limited: 750 signed numbered hardcover copies
Lettered: 26 signed, specially bound copies, housed in a custom tray case

BLURPPY is currently reading this one and it….is….awesome!  Gabriel’s cover is stunning and the good news is that this is just the first of the color work that he has turned in for the book. In the coming weeks he plans to turn in a number of full-color pieces, each focusing on a different character from the novel.  We will keep you in the loop on those.  If this cover is any indication of what we can expect from Gabriel, I can’t WAIT to see what else he has in store for us.
