Josh Malerman is the lead singer and songwriter for the rock band The High Strung. His novel Bird Box came out in May 2014 to starred reviews in Kirkus and Publisher’s Weekly. Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world. Bird Box was recently nominated for a 2015 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel.
