message 8: by Lynne (new)

Lynne Walter I just finished "A Head Full of Ghosts" 3 days ago, and I really enjoyed it. In addition to Shirley Jackson, I feel it also has it's ancestral origins in a mix of Saki, O. Henry, and Frank Stockton.

Wanda Maynard I love Joe Hill's work. But, hey! His dad is a fantastic writer too.


message 13: by Karen (new)

Karen No surprise Joe is such a gifted writer. He didn't fall far from the tree! I've enjoyed all his books so far, but NOS4A2 is my fave. :-)


message 14: by Kat (new)

Kat Jenkins "The Fireman" blew me away. I am so impressed with how good he is, and I enjoy the references to one another's work you both work in. It's fun to catch, and I'm sure fun to write. He's good. And you have both shaped, and continue to shape, the world. Love your work.


message 15: by Lisa Goodale (new)

Lisa Goodale I love your work and always have. I devour everything you write as soon as it's available. Your son is a very accomplished author too and I've enjoyed all of his books as well as your wife's books. With two authors as influences Joe couldn't fail. Your all so very good!! Keep pumping them out and I will keep being the "Faithful Reader"

message 21: by PJ (new)

PJ The Equinox by M.J. Preston is one of my favorites. I love everything he has written, novels and short stories. His writing just sucks you in, makes it hard to put the book down.

message 23: by Kike (new)

Kike Ramos I really like Joe Hill, and Josh Malerman! Bird Box and A House At the Bottom Of The Lake were amazing.


message 24: by Lu (new)

Lu i'm listening to Sleeping Beauties right now - man, nobody does stories like SK -- it's amazing how much housework i get done when he's rocking my headphones... {sigh} The Dark Tower was a boon to my move... Frank Muller ... man... he was THE voice... dang it, here i am all maudlin and commenting on King.... GOOD WORK DUDE!!!
