Trailer Park Tuesday: NOS4A2 by Joe Hill

Welcome to Trailer Park Tuesday, a showcase of new book trailers and, in a few cases, previews of book-related movies.  In the best cases, a book trailer can be a perfect marriage between text and video.

Trust Joe Hill to turn a place called Christmasland into a kingdom of horror.  As he mentions in the trailer for his new novel NOS4A2, eternal Yuletide is all well and good...up to a point. "Christmasland is a place where the fun never stops; every morning is Christmas morning and every night is Christmas Eve....[It's] a place that any child would like to spend the rest of their days in.  When you get to it, you never want to leave--which is a good thing because once Charlie brings you to Christmasland, you never do leave."  That would be Charlie Manx who drives around in a 1938 Rolls Royce that runs on souls, not gasoline.  Hill's novel brings together two fascinating characters: the creepy Charlie, and a young girl named Victoria who has a gift for finding lost things.  One day, Vic finds herself in the back seat of Charlie's car.  And that's when the nail-biting fun really begins.  Here's what Publishers Weekly had to say about the book: "NOS4A2 is a brilliant exploration of classic and modern monsters and dark fantasties, all cut up, restitched and retooled."
