    My favourite (so far) of Joe's stories is Horns. I've also heard lots of great things about NOS4A2 and I'd like to make it my next read.

    Do you have a favourite?

    I enjoyed all three of Joe Hill's novels (I have not read the short story collection yet). My favorite is NOS4A2 but the other two are a very close 2nd and 3rd.

    I also thoroughly enjoyed " Horns", but in my opinion he went to the next level with "NOS4RD".
    So my current favourite has to be that.
    You've a treat in store Flake, enjoy the "ride".

    I'm about 100 pages into NOS4A2 and I have to say, I like it. Book seems to have an "other worlds than these"/Lisey's Story feel to it...

    Autumnlyn BOOYA!

    I really enjoy Joe Hills style of writing. So far, Horns is my favorite. But, NOS4A2 is a close second.

    NOS4A2 is my favorite of his so far. Horns and HSB are excellent too!

    danie I am whatever you say I am.

    NOS4A2 is my favorite, but I love his first two as well.
    His collection of short stories is a close second to his dad's!

    He keeps on getting better, I like NOS4A2.
    I can't wait for the next issue of "Locke and Key", it is really a great story, even if you're not into graphic novels you should give it a try! Hopefully someday they'll release a full ominbus version.

    Have read them all and so far NOS4A2 is my favorite.

    I've read 20th Century Ghosts, and the three novels, plus a couple shorts on the Kindle, Thumbprint, Twittering from the Circus of the Dead, etc. And some of the stuff he's written w/ SK. Haven't read the Locke and Key yet, though I want them. I'd have to say that Heart-Shaped Box was actually my favorite of the novels, though I really liked the others as well. But I got attached to Jude ;)

    Ditto, except Locke and Key . . .I don't think I'd like that, maybe later.

    Gunpowder. Try to read gunpowder. His descriptions were so fantastic in this. Desolate and stark.

    I really liked NOS4A2 (a lot!) this guy shows promise - the next generation so to speak - I think he takes after his Dad. He's cute too! (Wow - now I sound like a pervert - I'm probably old enough to be his Mom!)

    I really liked HSB and Horns. I really really really want to read NOS4ATU!!! Just can't afford it. I also would like to read his short story collection, but its hard to find around here. Lock and Key seems cool, too.

    NOS4A2 has a cool limited time holiday cover when the paperback is released soon. It's mentioned on Joe Hill's website.

    I bought NOS4A2 on my kindle and loved it! I wish I'd bought it in hardcover though, as it's one of those books that I'd like to display proudly on my bookcase.

    It's cool that by reading Joe you can see the influence he has on collaborations with his father - there's a certain visceral, "meatiness" in NOS4A2 that is also found in In The Tall Grass. Not sure if this is his direct influence, but they are at least similarities.
