Limited Edition

Lividian Publications, formerly LetterPress Publications, is pleased to offer their signed and slipcased Limited Edition hardcover of 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill as a “Preorder Only Limited Edition,” meaning the orders received between April 6 and April 30 will set the print run.

This special edition includes a brand-new introduction by Christopher Golden, new story notes by Joe Hill, and seventeen full-color illustrations by Vincent Sammy.

This could easily have the lowest print run for any Joe Hill collector’s edition in many years. This is also the first of several projects by Joe Hill that LetterPress Publications has in the works, and the print run for this book will set the print run for the others. Please place your order now to get in on the ground floor of what is sure to be an extremely collectible set!

Imogene is young, beautiful… and dead, waiting in the Rosebud Theater one afternoon in 1945…

Francis was human once, but now he’s an eight-foot-tall locust, and everyone in Calliphora will tremble when they hear him sing…

John is locked in a basement stained with the blood of half a dozen murdered children, and an antique telephone, long since disconnected, rings at night with calls from the dead…

Arthur Roth is a lonely kid with big ideas and a gift for attracting abuse…

Nolan knows but can never tell what really happened in the summer of ’77, when his idiot savant younger brother built a vast cardboard fort with secret doors leading into other worlds…

The past isn’t dead. It isn’t even past…
