In Faun, Joe Hill displays his mastery of the short form in a dark fantasy novella about a group of wealthy hunters whose members seek the thrill of hunting exotic animals.

During an expedition, one of the hunters mentions the existence of an even more exclusive hunting area, accessed through a little door in Maine. To see what lies on the other side, just speak with the ominous-sounding Mr. Charn. Oh, and bring your checkbook.

The story raises questions about the ethics of hunting, the repercussions of exploiting the natural world, and the consequences of human greed, masterfully interwoven in a tale that highlights Hill’s boundless imagination and leaves us wanting for more.


Joe Hill is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman, Heart-Shaped Box, and Strange Weather. He is also the co-creator of the Eisner Award-winning comic Locke & Key.

Gorgeous Book

It's clear that a great deal of thought and care went into producing this book. Even the slipcase is a delight to hold; I hadn't known that could be true. Every choice, from binding materials, to artist, and beyond, is in service to this brief but haunting story.

Conversation Tree Press's first published book confirms what many of us had suspected: this is the hottest party in town.
