Sitting on my bookshelf, I have dog-eared copies of "The Hellbound heart," and "The Books of Blood" which includes one my favorite short stories: "The Forbidden," aka CANDYMAN; so when I read Neil Gaiman's review on Joe Hill's stunning novel "Heart Shaped Box, " he name-dropped this..."the best debut horror novel since Clive Barker's 'The Damnation Game.'"Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
So I hurried to B&N and purchased TDG. In short, that was the last time I took a Neil Gaiman recommendation seriously. This book didn't move me, and dragged its literary feet in the muck of boredom. What a disappointment.
If you wanna know who the true heir to Stephen King is...it's Joe Hill, his son.
