Ragtime and a murderous piano

This looks tasty:

"We first meet ragtime superstar Scott Joplin in Tananarive Due's novel "Joplin's Ghost" in 1917, when syphilis has nearly eaten through his brain and crippled his hands. He struggles to play an old piano that has shown up in the asylum that will be his last home. But this is no ordinary piano. This is an angry piano lusting for vengeance. In the next chapter, set in 1991, it tries to kill a 10-year-old girl named Phoenix." more here.

Word up, dawg!
