I stood still, vision blurring, and in that moment, I heard my heart break. It was a small, clean sound, like the snapping of a flower’s stem.

31 Days of Halloween

Perhaps the only thing more frightening than a weekend visit to IKEA Orsk, your friendly neighborhood mega-store filled to the brim with Modern design, ready-to-assemble home furnishings, is visiting a haunted Orsk.

Welcome to Horrorstör, the new novel from Grady Hendrix that suspiciously resembles a catalogue from your favorite furniture store, complete with floor plan and item descriptions. Unfortunately, all is not well at the Cuyahoga, OH Orsk store: the morning crew keeps discovering damaged merchandise and other signs of vandalism, yet the security camera footage reveals nothing. The night before a major audit from corporate HQ, shift supervisor Basil Washington enlists the aid of two employees, Amy Porter and Ruth Anne DeSoto, for an all-night stakeout to uncover the roots of these strange happenings. May it have something to do with the fact that the store was built on land that was once the site of a notorious prison run by an insane warden?

What starts off as a jaundiced work place satire turns into a terrifying fright fest—a horror fiction mash-up of Poltergeist with J-horror filmDark Water—and a perfect literary chiller for the dark and stormy Halloween season now upon us.

"Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign. But stories can also be used to empower, and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people. But stories can also repair that broken dignity." 
— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
