Pop Art by Joe Hill

From the New York Times bestselling author of NOS4A2 and Horns comes this e-short story—from Joe Hill’s award-winning collection 20th Century Ghosts.

Imogene is young and beautiful. She kisses like a movie star and knows everything about every film ever made. She's also dead and waiting in the Rosebud Theater for Alec Sheldon one afternoon in 1945. . . .

Arthur Roth is a lonely kid with big ideas and a gift for attracting abuse. It isn't easy to make friends when you're the only inflatable boy in town. . . .

Francis is unhappy. Francis was human once, but that was then. Now he's an eight-foot-tall locust and everyone in Calliphora will tremble when they hear him sing. . . .

John Finney is locked in a basement that's stained with the blood of half a dozen other murdered children. In the cellar with him is an antique telephone, long since disconnected, but which rings at night with calls from the dead. . . .

If you have not done yourself the pleasure of reading Hills' collection of short stories, 20th Century Ghosts, you should. If you do not usually read short stories never fear, these works are as satisfying as a novel, which is a huge compliment to the authors' skills. The stories are hugely varied, but one story still stands out- Pop Art. I am not going to give anything away about this stunning story. Let me just say that for a long while I carried this story with me and made at least 10 friends read it. A gift. Read this story right now. Then buy the whole book and read it again.

This is a wonderfully creative story about a boy and his best friend, who happens to be inflatable. No matter how many times I reread this story, it still amazes me. Joe Hill writes with truth, humor and heart. I have read this story to many people, just to share it with them.
