Joe Hill - Fresh Face of Horror




Above: Photo by PT Sullivan The New Hampshire seacoast has its share of creepy stories, from rock-throwing ghosts to alien abductions, but it’s also the home of Joe Hill, whose Pandora’s box of a mind is poised to spin out a world of dark fantasy and horror. His first novel, “Heart-Shaped Box,” has garnered critical raves and is queued up to be made into a major motion picture by Neil Jordan (The Brave One). His earlier book of short stories, “20th Century Ghosts,” was published as a limited edition in England, but an American edition with national promotion is due out as this goes to press. He even has a six-issue comic book/graphic novel coming out in January. It would be tempting to think of him as heir to the horror throne of Master of the Macabre, Stephen King, but that might be a redundant title since young Joe Hill is King’s flesh and blood son.
