Horrorstör

Everyone who's ever been to, or worse, worked at an Ikea store knows that they are their own special level of hell, reserved for those foolish enough to enter in search of cheap furniture and lukewarm meatballs. In Horrorstör, author Grady Hendrix asks the question: what if big-box retail shopping really IS a literal gateway to hell? The Ikea knock-off store, Orsk, is by day an average retail shopping nightmare but after the lights go out the real horror begins. After the Cleveland Orsk store experiences several after-hours disturbances, several employees stay after closing to try and catch the perpetrators and, in typical horror-movie fashion, get far more than they bargained for. Designed and built as a modern-day panopticon on the ruins of an ancient asylum for the insane, this Orsk store houses more than just cheap flatpack dressers and tables. Designed like a fake Ikea catalog and full of increasingly creepy product descriptions (for bonus fun, be sure to look up the meanings of the product names!), this book will have you reading with your Reniflür table lamps switched on...
