Product description


The Last Days of Jack Sparks was an absolute blast - thoroughly enjoyed it!--Adrian Selby, author of Snakewood

A breath of fresh air, vivid and essential.--
John Higgs, author of Stranger Than We Can Imagine

A darkly comic, genuinely unnerving, incredibly well-executed horror novel.--

Bizarre, funny, and at times downright creepy, Arnopp's debut is a worthy entry in the horror field.

Devour it in one sitting.
Australian Way

Funny, creepy and totally nuts.--
Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts

I always suspected Jason Arnopp was a genius, and now, having read his first novel, I know I was right. Jack Sparks is an extraordinary literary creation, clever and awful, loveable and cruel and his story is so terrifying and believable that I could barely bring myself to turn off my lights at bedtime.--
Lisa Jewell, international bestselling author

Jack Sparks is a tremendously fascinating, entertaining, and an entirely contemporary movie character. His journey into the supernatural and his clashes with those forces and with himself are hilarious, disturbing, exciting and surprising as hell. I couldn't put the book down and I believe it will be a blast for audiences to experience the movie version.--
Ron Howard

Original, clever, scary and funny...It kept me gripped and guessing from page one.--
Rebecca Levene, author of The Hollow Gods series

Savagely humorous and very spooky modern morality tale.--
Daily Mail

Takes a frenetic and self-obsessed modern world in its confident stride... gives us ingenious and funny diabolism, repurposed for the 21st Century. A magnificent millennial nightmare.--
Alan Moore, creator of Watchmen and V for Vendetta

This is
The Omen for the social media age.--Chris Brookmyre, author of the Jack Parlabane thrillers

This is one of those books where I'm sad when I'm not reading it. It manages the rare feat of being both horrific and hilarious, which makes me insanely jealous of Arnopp and has me considering how to kill him and consume his mighty power.--
Chuck Wendig, New York Times bestselling author

Wittier than the lovechild of Stephen Fry and Charlie Brooker; scarier than watching
The Exorcist in an abandoned asylum. Fast, furious, original and most importantly, terrifying.--Sarah Lotz, author of The Three

Wow. Seriously hard to put down . . . Chilling and utterly immersive.--
M. R. Carey, author of The Girl With All the Gifts --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Jason Arnopp is the author of the new Orbit Books novel Ghoster, which Barnes &amp; Noble's SFF blog has said, "just might qualify as the first true horror novel of the 21st Century." The Three author Sarah Lotz calls it, "a fiendishly smart exploration of obsession and social media addiction", while Cross Her Heat author Sarah Pinborough reckons it's, "twisty, creepy and utterly absorbing."

Arnopp's previous novel was The Last Days Of Jack Sparks (2016), which has been described as "a magnificent millennial nightmare" (Alan Moore), "scarier than watching The Exorcist in an abandoned asylum" (Sarah Lotz) and "The Omen for the social media age" (Christopher Brookmyre). Director Ron Howard (Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon, The Da Vinci Code) optioned the film rights shortly after the book's 2016 release.

Arnopp co-wrote the official behind-the-scenes book Inside Black Mirror with Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones.

Check out his four shorter-form fiction titles:

-- Beast In The Basement, a suspenseful, mind-blowing thriller novella

-- A Sincere Warning About The Entity In Your Home, a chilling and groundbreaking short story set in YOUR home

-- Auto Rewind, a dark, emotionally charged thriller novelette

-- American Hoarder, a supernatural creep-fest available only when you join the author's free mailing list at

Arnopp previously wrote and executive-produced the Lionsgate feature film Stormhouse and script-edited the Peter Mullan feature The Man Inside. He has also written for the worlds of Doctor Who (BBC), The Sarah Jane Adventures (BBC) and Friday The 13th (New Line Cinema).

In his past life as a rock journalist, he interviewed the likes of Bon Jovi, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne and Guns N' Roses. He was once surrounded by angry guards holding semi-automatic weapons at The Vatican. His Slipknot biography, Slipknot: Inside The Sickness, Behind The Masks, was released in 2001 and is now available as a Kindle Edition. Arnopp has also written a guide to journalistic interviewing, entitled How To Interview Doctor Who, Ozzy Osbourne And Everyone Else, which is also out on Kindle.

Arnopp's latest non-fiction book is From The Front Lines Of Rock. Available in the Kindle Store now, it gathers 30 of his favourite nterviews he wrote as a rock journalist, with the likes of Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Iron Maiden, Korn, Kiss, Faith No More, Garbage, Nine Inch Nails and Green Day.

When you sign up for Arnopp's free newsletter at, you can also download his short story American Hoarder for free. You might also want to check out his YouTube channel by searching for his name there. What a wonderful world.
