Spin a black yarn : novellas / Josh Malerman.

Malerman, Josh, (author.).


"Five novellas of horror and speculative fiction from the New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box: -A sister insists to her little brother that "Half the House Is Haunted" by a strange presence. But is it the house that's haunted-or their childhoods? -In "Argyle," a dying man confesses to homicides he never committed, and he reveals long-kept secrets far more sinister than murder. -A tourist takes the ultimate trip to outer space in "The Jupiter Drop," but the real journey is into his own dark past. -In "Doug and Judy Buy the House Washer," a trendy married couple buys the latest home gadget only to find themselves trapped by their possessions, their history, and each other. -And in "Egorov," a wealthy old cretin murders a young man, not knowing the victim was a triplet. The two surviving brothers stage a savage faux-haunting-playing the ghost of their slain brother-with the aim of driving the old murderer mad" -- Provided by publisher.
