Spin a Black Yarn

By Josh Malerman
Spin a Black Yarn by Josh Malerman digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Five harrowing novellas of horror and speculative fiction from the singular mind of the New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box

AN ESQUIRE AND LIBRARY JOURNAL BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR


Josh Malerman is a master weaver of stories—and in this spine-chilling collection he spins five twisted tales from the shadows of the human soul: 

A sister insists to her little brother that “Half the House Is Haunted” by a strange presence. But is it the house that’s haunted—or their childhoods? 

In “Argyle,” a dying man confesses to homicides he never committed, and he reveals long-kept secrets far more sinister than murder.

A tourist takes the ultimate trip to outer space in “The Jupiter Drop,” but the real journey is into his own dark past. 

In “Doug and Judy Buy the House Washer™,” a trendy married couple buys the latest home gadget only to find themselves trapped by their possessions, their history . . . and each other.

And in “Egorov,” a wealthy old cretin murders a young man, not knowing the victim was a triplet. The two surviving brothers stage a savage faux-haunting—playing the ghost of their slain brother—with the aim of driving the old murderer mad.

“I ended up DNFing this title because I was bored through the first story. I enjoy anthologies/short stories in general so that isn't the issue. I saw that the book had a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews at the time I tried reading. I may pick it back up in the future to give it another try, but with so many things on my TBR it will be a while before I do.”
