Author Info
Joe Hill
Joe Hill was born Joseph Hillstrom King, the son of horror superstar Stephen King. Though Hill followed in his father's science-fiction and horror footsteps, he chose to write under the surname Hill in an attempt to prove his worth outside of his famous family name. Before a 2006 Variety article exposed his true identity, he had received numerous fellowships and prizes for his short stories. His 2007 horror novel debut, HEART-SHAPED BOX, became a New York Times bestseller, preparing him to assume his father's mantle as a writer of chilling and psychologically rich genre fiction.
Praise
"[A] wild, mesmerizing, perversely witty tale of horror."
"[Joe Hill] gives his characters believably complex emotional lives that help to anchor the supernatural in psychological reality....His subtle and skillful treatment of horrors that could easily have exploded over the top and out of control helps make this a truly memorable debut." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation Joe Hill, son of Stephen King, shows he's inherited some of his father's ghoulish golden touch in his debut novel, HEART-SHAPED BOX. Judas Coyne, a middle-aged Goth rocker, lives in seclusion, tinkering with cars and adding to his collection of the macabre. When he buys a haunted suit over the Internet, he gets more than he bargained for: not only does the suit really have a ghost, but the ghost has a bone to pick with Jude. The ghost's step-daughter, "Florida," was one of Jude's many groupie girlfriends (Jude names all his girlfriends after the state he picked them up in), and the ghost thinks Jude is responsible for the girl's suicide. HEART-SHAPED BOX is filled with grisly set-pieces and plenty of chills, but, like his dad, Hill knows how to get inside his characters' slightly deranged minds, which is where true horror lies.
