The Hobo Nickel... It's traded from hand to hand for food, sex, shelter, and power. But these are no ordinary hobo nickels. These deliciously macabre bits of lost art belong to the Carver twenty coins that carry a curse of death, destruction, and ill luck.
Where these coins go, so does his will. Each coin is imbued with his malice and a desire for destruction. With each life ruined... the Carver's life goes on. Seventeen stories tell the tale of the Carver's legacy: coins designed for beauty morphed into catalysts of pain.
