Can't believe I'm thinking this, let alone saying it, but I think Joe may be just as good, if not sometimes better than his father!
I enjoyed the first book of his I read (Heart Shaped Box) and also read Nos4A2, and am currently reading the Fireman. He has a gift for establishing characters and making you feel in the moment. And, I must say, he writes horror VERY well.
Kudos to you Mr. Hill; may your career be as long and successful as your dad's!
