Following in the Footsteps

Stephen King’s son, Joe Hill, is hailed in the current issue of Time magazine as “as one of America’s finest horror writers,” based on “the strength of two masterly thrillers–2007’s Heart-Shaped Box and his newest, Horns.”

Despite his pedigree, it wasn’t an easy road, says Time, “Hill, 37, spent more than a decade trying his hand at a variety of genres (a thriller in the vein of Cormac McCarthy, a children’s tale, a 900-page fantasy novel) with no bites from publishers.”

Library customers may not have caught on; holds are less than 1:1 on modest ordering in large library sytems (two copies or fewer for the largest branches).

As is clear from the cover, the title refers to the Devil.
