Editorial Reviews

New York Journal of Books
Horns is a well wrought tale with intellectual merit. Not only are we entertained, we are challenged to think as well.”
Time magazine
“On the strength of two masterly thrillers—2007’s Heart Shaped-Box and his newest Horns—Hill has emerged as one of America’s finest horror writers.”
DreadCentral.com [horror entertainment review website]
“HORNS should bring even more fans to Joe Hill . . . he has his own style, and it is very accessible as well as fast-moving. . . . HORNS is a fast-paced, fascinating murder mystery/love story with a dash of the devil himself to spice things up.”
USA Today
“[Horns is] devilishly good. . . . Hill is a terrific writer with a great imagination. He has a special talent for taking us and his characters to very weird places.”
Seattle Times
“Hill’s survey of the question of suffering is a wild ride, as filled with thrills as his hero’s headlong plunge down to a dark and dazzling river.”
Oregonian
“The wise guys point out that the literature of horror fantasy tends to be both romantic and conservative. Normalcy is idealized and so precious that its violation is the essence of horror. Joe Hill’s sweet, fanged demonology takes us there.”
Los Angeles Times
Horns is thoroughly enjoyable and often original.…a richly nuanced story. Fire and brimstone have rarely looked this good. ”
Pittsburgh Tribune
“A devilish, ingeniously designed story that positions Hill in the same realm as Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Lethem, and Stephen King.”
Tulsa World
Horns is a pitchfork-packing, prodigal son’s take on religion…But the real meat of the story dissects man’s relationship with good and evil wihtout sacrificing a bit of suspense…Horns is a mesmerizing page-turner.”
Bookreporter.com
“Brilliant in conception...HORNS is a rollercoaster of a work filled with thrills and chills.”
Bookgasm.com
“Hill’s one incredibly talented writer with a wicked sense of humor and a master’s control of pacing.”
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
“No one working in horror today is more adept than Hill …His writing is both merciless and compassionate, driving hard toward the painful truth in every story while holding fast to the desires of his protagonist. ”
Valdosta Daily Times
“”Darkly comic in places, touching in others, chilling on occassion…”
Wilmington News Journal
“[D]evilishly good…Hill is a terrificwriter with a greatimagination. He has a special talent for taking us and his characters to very weird places.”
Orlando Sentinel
“Fire and brimstone have rarely looked so good.”
St. Paul Pioneer Press
“Horns is not only scary but it’s also insightful, often funny and sometimes sweetl romantic.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“[A] fresh, tough-minded take on what it means to make a deal with the devil and your own worst nature.”
The Globe and Mail
“Fast-paced, well-made, and wonderfully weird.”
Providence Journal-Bulletin
“This is masterful allegory as Hill proves himself…to be a compelling chronicler of human natures continual war between good and evil.”
Charleston Post & Courier
“a tight and well-plotted murder mystery, as well as a thoughtful meditation on good and evil....[HORNS] establishes Hill as one of the most clever and talented writers working in the genre.”
www.npr.org on HORNS
“A satisfying and entertaining book.”
Miami Herald
“[HORNS is] a creepy murder mystery, a tragic love triangle, and a sweetly wistful coming-of-age story. It’s the kind of book that has you laughing on one page, crying on another and making sure the doors and windows are safely locked on a third.”
Connie Ogle
Horns is dark, twisted, even sometimes funny in a macabre way.”
