The Bizarre and Macabre Works of Joe Hill

20th Century Ghosts book coverThe darkness that spills from Joe Hill’s pen should be read in October while dead leaves rustle, tree branches scrape at window panes and ghouls seem to climb out of long shadows. Start with Hill’s short story collection, Twentieth Century Ghosts, with its museum of last breaths and forlorn specters that haunt theaters. Want something scarier? Try Heart-Shaped Box and you’ll meet a musician being attacked by a vengeful spirit through a suit bought online. Not in the mood for ghosts? Have a look at Horns, Hill’s newest novel, where a young man tries to figure out why he woke up with devil horns. Whatever Joe Hill book you choose, be ready for a tale best told at twilight.
