An eclectic collection of short stories (only a few of them horror!) by Stephen King’s son. Some are better than others, but all have interesting ideas.
Horror? more like horrible
I thought this collection of stories were okay, nothing too thrilling or excellent. The stories all seemed to stop short at the end instead of developing them just a little bit further. With all of the great 4 and 5 star reviews, I expected something a little more from these stories except kept feeling rather indifferent after I read them. Maybe I'm missing something with Hill's short stories.
I really liked this book! Christopher Golden wrote the intro and his favorite was Pop Art, but my three favorites were 20th Century Ghost (lots of movie trivia and a wonderful romance), Bobby Conroy Comes Back from the Dead (which takes place on a George Romero film set and isn't a ghost story at all) and The Cape (which was more supernatural than ghostly). Joe Hill writes the bizarre and the real really well. I'm going to check out his novels next!
This is a stupendous selection of short stories by Joe Hill. From the sublime to the sick.
It's all here and this book is a great showcase for Hill's writing range.
Fantastic set of stories, ranging from a ghost story ("20th Century Ghost") to sci fi ("You Will Hear the Locust Sing) to surreal ("My Father's Mask") to just plain charming and odd ("Pop Art"). Read it if you like words at all.
a terrific collection of short stories - some horror, some quirky psychological fiction. Loved Pop Art! Looks like Joe Hill inherited the creative gene from his dad, Stephen King.
Awesome collection of short stories. Reading this book made me go out and seek out his other books.
