From the publisher:
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.
The Limited edition of NOS4A2 will be oversize, printed on 80# Finch, with an unpublished novella, “Wraith,” that was cut from the original manuscript. 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.

This listing is for state 1.
About the book
NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.
Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.
Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.”
Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son.
Exclusive to the print editions of NOS4A2 are more than 15 illustrations by award-winning Locke & Key artist Gabriel Rodríguez.
