Bird box by Josh Malerman( Book )

33 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Something is out there, something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse of it, and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from. Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remains, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now that the boy and girl are four, it's time to go, but the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat -- blindfolded -- with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children's trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. Something is following them all the while, but is it man, animal, or monster?

Advance praise for Unbury Carol "Unbury Carolis a Poe story set in the weird west we all carry inside us, and it not only hits the ground running, it digs into that ground, too. About six wonderful feet."--Stephen Graham Jones​, author of Mongrels "With vivid prose and characters that leap off the page, guns a-blazing, Unbury Carol creates its own lingering legend, dragging you along like an obstinate horse toward a righteous storm of an ending."--Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Phasma "Bleakly lyrical la Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O'Connor."--Library Journal (starred review) "This one haunts you for reasons you can't quite put your finger on. Malerman is too fierce an original to allow anyone else's visions to intrude on his. [He] defies categories and comparisons with other writers."-- Kirkus Reviews "Breathtaking and menacing. [Unbury Carol is] an intricately plotted, lyrical page turner about love, betrayal, revenge, and the primal fear of being buried alive."--Booklist (starred review)"--

Goblin : a novel in six novellas by Josh Malerman( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Fans of creepy, eerie, and genuinely unsettling horror will devour (or be devoured by) this set of vignettes about the aptly named town of Goblin, Mich. In Goblin, it rains nearly all the time; the dead are buried standing up; the town park, Perish Park, holds a yearly recreation of the strangling of an early politician; and the original 60 founders were massacred by Native Americans. Malerman (Black Mad Wheel) makes this hair-raising compilation of horror stories an ode to the town itself, a place where people appear normal and have normal jobs, but are often influenced by some odd miasma or emanation from the grave. Walter Kamp has removed all interior walls from his apartment to make sure no ghosts can sneak up and scare him to death; Dirk Rogers, tour guide for the Hardy Carroll Goblin Zoo, has an affinity for the animals that leads in unexpected directions. Malerman's work reveals the evil lurking just beneath the surface of reality, and he has a true understanding of the things that go bump in the night'"--Publisher
