A traditional haunted house story in a contemporary setting, and full of current fears, Horrorstör delivers a high-concept premise in a unique style. Something strange is happening at the Orsk furniture superstore in Cleveland. Every morning, employees arrive to find broken Kjërring bookshelves, shattered Glans water goblets, and smashed Liripip wardrobes—clearly someone, or something, is up to no good. To unravel the mystery, five young employees volunteer for a long dusk-till-dawn shift and encounter horrors that defy imagination. Along the way, author Grady Hendrix infuses sly social commentary on the nature of work in the new twenty-first-century economy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you’ve ever been frustrated trying to put together furniture from IKEA, you’ll get a laugh out of Hendrix’s spoof mystery.” New York Post
“Wildly fun and outrageously inventive.” Shelf Awareness (starred review)
“This fun horror novel…will deliver enough scares for horror fans.” Library Journal
“A very clever ghost story.” Booklist
“Retail stores that peddle lifestyle philosophies to customers and employees get a comic drubbing in this diverting horror lampoon.” Publishers Weekly
“Tai Sammons narrates evenly, with Bronson Pinchot providing interstitial advertisements for increasingly sinister-sounding Orsk furniture…Fans of B horror movies will enjoy this parody and will be entertained by the strong story development.” Library Journal (audio review)
“Sammons’ performance has a tough, acidic edge that perfectly reflects Amy’s cynicism and resignation. Pinchot, meanwhile, sounds just like a commercial, with a tenor tone and perfectly convincing upbeat rhythm.” AudioFile
“Disarming.” Wall Street Journal
