I got new the gift edition of Horns yesterday. It is magnificent. I think there are still a few left at Suntup if you are interested. The gift edition is $85. I would have loved to have that $3,000.00 edition but settled for the $85.00 version. :) The $3,000.00 edition is spectacular. It's too late if you want that one.


Ms Mod - Did mom & dad buy a $3,000.00 edition? :)

Joe wote a new introduction for this edition and I read it last night. The introduction is very interesting as Joe discusses the bad issues that were going on in his life while he was trying to get this novel out. He said he was proud of this novel because he had to work for every page (but he has no desire to read it again because of bad memories). Nothing came easy with this one.

....interesting.....but you'd never know it from the quality of the writing....
I think the dark and twisted tone of the novel reflected what was going on in his life. I think he had a blog post a long time ago that circulated on this site where he talked about his mental struggles around that time and how he was resisting seeing anyone about it because he was afraid any prescribed drugs would mess with his creativity. He says in the introduction to Horns, that he found out after he was treated that it was his paranoia that was messing with his creativity not the cure.
