Arriving September 27th from Titan Books, Paul Tremblay’s A Head Full of Ghosts releases in paperback and ebook for the UK. Winner of the coveted Bram Stoker Award, A Head Full of Ghosts has been dishing out the scares to readers since it first arrived last year, including Stephen King, who said the book “Scared the living hell out of me, and I’m pretty hard to scare.”
In case you haven’t heard about A Head Full of Ghosts, here’s the official synopsis:
The lives of the Barretts, a normal suburban New England family, are torn apart when fourteen-year-old Marjorie begins to display signs of acute schizophrenia.
To her parents’ despair, the doctors are unable to stop Marjorie’s descent into madness. As their stable home devolves into a house of horrors, they reluctantly turn to a local Catholic priest for help. Father Wanderly suggests an exorcism; he believes the vulnerable teenager is the victim of demonic possession. He also contacts a production company that is eager to document the Barretts’ plight. With John, Marjorie’s father, out of work for more than a year and the medical bills looming, the family agrees to be filmed, and soon find themselves the unwitting stars of The Possession, a hit reality television show. When events in the Barrett household explode in tragedy, the show and the shocking incidents it captures become the stuff of urban legend.
Fifteen years later, a bestselling writer interviews Marjorie’s younger sister, Merry. As she recalls those long ago events that took place when she was just eight years old, long-buried secrets and painful memories that clash with what was broadcast on television begin to surface—and a mind-bending tale of psychological horror is unleashed, raising vexing questions about memory and reality, science and religion, and the very nature of evil.
And here we have the UK paperback cover of the book, and it’s a beauty.
