Goblin: A Novel in Six Novellas

We rated this book:


Welcome to Goblin, the rainiest town around. None other than contemporary master of horror Josh Malerman will be your guide. The sights you’ll see include the Blackwater River, the Woodruff theater, Transistor Planet, Goblin Magic store, the Milky Way adult theater, and the city morgue. Explore the Goblin Zoo and the Slaughterhouse. Try your luck in the maze at the Hedges and be careful not to get lost. Meet some of the town’s many celebrities, such as Mayor Blackwater, town historian Walter Kemp, the famous hunter Neal Nash, and Wayne Sherman, the creator of the town’s great topiaries.

Malerman, a winner of the Bram Stoker Award, offers six loosely connected novellas about the mysterious town of Goblin. This book delivers more twists and turns than the maze in the Hedges. The town’s inhabitants are the creepiest, mixed up, larger than life characters you’ll ever meet. Malerman’s storytelling can be described as eerie and grim without being grisly or gory. If you are looking for a psychological thriller by one of the most creative horror writers today, look no further. Enjoy your tour but be warned, this town has many hidden surprises.
