The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill are one of my two all-time favorite horror stories.
Available in several different formats for your reading pleasure, there is no reason to miss these classics from 1959 and 2009 respectively.
The Haunting Of Hill House
The tale begins with the rational-minded Dr Montague, who is sufficiently taken with the legend surrounding Hill House, to invite a few other people to stay with him in the house to “test his theory” that the unexplained goings-on can all be explained with science and reason.
There is Eleanor, a quiet, shy, reserved woman who becomes increasingly reluctant to participate in the stay before she even gets there; encounters with hostile local people on the journey makes her certain that there is a sinister secret surrounding the place. Soon she meets Theodora, her “cousin”, who is more outgoing but the two women stick closely together upon their meeting. Then there is Luke Sanderson, the heir to the property, but somehow among the least receptive – or cut off even – when it comes to the story behind Hill House.
Initially, everyone there is sufficiently spooked by the house itself – being a most imposing and unwelcoming place to spend any time in – only to have Dr Montague add to this by telling them the rather grisly story of the unfortunate family who first lived there. Madness, bad fortunes and suicide are recurring in the family history, and understandably no-one can bear to stay in the place for very long, but the new residents (perhaps excepting Eleanor, who anticipates the worst already) decide to give the house a chance.
However the opinion that the house is, essentially, a malignant and living thing, with a will of its own to drive out anyone who dares to live there, begins to ring all the more true. It is not long before frightening events begin to unfold – loud banging in the night, writing on the wall and destruction of property – which seem to happen to, or close to, Eleanor more than anyone else. What makes this story so unsettling is that events are described in the narrative clearly enough to induce fear and unease in the reader, but also vaguely enough that a rational explanation can’t be ruled out entirely.
A subtle build-up of apprehension, combined with a disturbing back-story to overshadow the present narrative, serve to make this a story which has clearly influenced later supernatural writers, and continues to spook readers today.
Heart Shaped Box
Joe Hill doesn't disappoint with this tale of terror. Aging, self-absorbed rock star Judas Coyne has a thing for the macabre -- his collection includes sketches from infamous serial killer John Wayne Gacy, a trepanned skull from the 16th century, a used hangman's noose, Aleister Crowley's childhood chessboard, etc. -- so when his assistant tells him about a ghost for sale on an online auction site, he immediately puts in a bid and purchases it.
The black, heart-shaped box that Coyne receives in the mail not only contains the suit of a dead man but also his vengeance-obsessed spirit. The ghost, it turns out, is the stepfather of a young groupie who committed suicide after the 54-year-old Coyne callously used her up and threw her away. Now, determined to kill Coyne and anyone who aids him, the merciless ghost of Craddock McDermott begins his assault on the rocker's sanity. I could not put this book down!
Engineered to serve as the complete home theater loudspeaker package, the HKTS 30BQ integrates high-performance 5.1-channel speakers ® four front and rear satellites, plus a center loudspeaker ® with a subwoofer in a single sophisticated offering. The combination of a dual-driver, center-channel speaker for replaying distinct movie dialogue, powerful dual-driver satellites that envelop you in all the high-energy action and a powered sub for low-frequency thrills makes this speaker system more than equal to handing the sonic excitement of Hollywood blockbusters and your favorite musical offerings.
Constant-directivity waveguides fitted to the satellite speakers® soft-dome tweeters decrease their directivity at high frequencies to produce a wide stereo image across a large listening area. Bass-boost and phase controls on the subwoofer allow you to adjust low-frequency sounds. And if that®s not enough, you can add more: You can put the speakers at ear height with the aid of the optional (and very attractive) HTFS 3/E floor stands and add two speakers to expand your home theater to a 7.1-channel system. The six-piece HKTS 30BQ provides a best-in-class cinema experience while elevating your home theater from the ordinary to the truly extraordinary.
5.1 home theater surround-sound speaker system
As a complete home theater package, the HKTS 30BQ has everything you need ® including satellite bases, wall-mounting hardware and all necessary cables ® in one box. And by including removable shelf-mount stands and wall-mount brackets for the satellite and center speakers, the system offers you great flexibility for installing the speakers in different locations.
Four two-way, 120W satellite speakers
Four voice-matched satellite speakers with tandem 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and 3/4-inch (19-millimeter) high-frequency dome tweeters produce a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance with convincing sound effects. You can place these video-shielded speakers near your TV without causing magnetic interference.
Voice-matched, 120W dual-driver center speaker
The HKTS 30BQ®s center-channel speaker features tandem 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and a 3/4-inch (19-millimeter) high-frequency dome tweeter for clear, precise dialogue from movies, TV shows or other media created for a multichannel sound system. Constant-directivity waveguides decrease the tweeter®s directivity at high frequencies. The result is a wide stereo image across a large listening area.
Powerful, 200W down-firing subwoofer
The HKTS 30BQ®s 200-watt, down-firing subwoofer with an 8-inch (200-millimeter) driver offers deep, authoritative low-frequency realism that lends richness and believability to whatever imagery you®re seeing on screen ® while remaining surprisingly unimposing off-screen. The subwoofer lends an impressive richness and credibility to your home theater experience.
Stunning, d®cor-complementing modern design
The HKTS 30BQ represents a d®cor-friendly complement to any entertainment center or home theater. Its contemporary styling incorporates glossy, black accents, polished surfaces and elegant symmetry ® elements that are clearly part of the rich Harman Kardon® design heritage. The system®s compact, unobtrusive dimensions offer virtually unlimited installation options.
Bass-boost controls and phase switches for subwoofer
Controls on the HKTS 30BQ®s 200-watt subwoofer let you fine-tune its bass output for your personal taste and room acoustics. Bass-boost and phase switches also allow you to optimize subwoofer performance, depending upon where you place the speakers. A subwoofer properly in phase with the satellite speakers generates clear and lifelike sounds for instruments such as drums, piano and plucked strings.
Magnetically shielded loudspeaker components
Unshielded loudspeaker components can upset the magnetic field in a conventional TV, resulting in visible color shifts and possible long-term damage. But the HKTS 30BQ®s magnetically shielded loudspeaker components can deliver high-quality, high-performance results even when you place them near a TV.
LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector
The HKTS 30BQ includes an LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector that bypasses the subwoofer®s internal low-pass crossover. As a result, you can use a receiver/processor®s dedicated subwoofer output to provide enhanced low-end performance.
Compatible with the HTFS 3/E floor stands
If wall-mounting is not your preferred method of installation, optional HTFS 3/E floor stands (sold separately) set the HKTS 30BQ satellite speakers at the ideal ear-level listening position. The aluminum-extrusion columns, which also include a self-contained wire-management system, will elegantly complement virtually any d®cor.
Upgradable to 7.1 channels
If you want to move beyond the all-encompassing power of this 5.1-channel surround-sound system, you can easily add a pair of front-height or rear-channel surround loudspeakers ® and hence unleash the 7.1-channel capability of your HKTS 30BQ system. The 7.1 surround-sound format elevates the impact of your entertainment experience with a richer, more thorough soundstage.
