    Equal to the Best of Stephen King

    Joe Hill chose to write semi-pseudonymously for a decade before he was outed as Stephen King's son because he wanted his work to stand, or fall, on its own merits. As he told Writer's Digest in 2014, "[w]hen I was a younger guy, I was really insecure. I was afraid if I wrote as Joseph King that publishers would publish a lousy work because they saw a chance to make a quick buck in the last name." I suspect that any such insecurity is long gone given the success of Hill's previous works, but if not, he should rest assured that his own spot in the pantheon of great horror writers will be further secured by his achievement in The Fireman. I hate to compare Hill to his father, but as he himself acknowledged to Writer's Digest, "it's really impossible to have a lifelong career as a novelist and not write stuff that is occasionally reflective on my parents." The Fireman reflects the best of Stephen King while still being uniquely Hill's own. At times I felt its 725 pages were a little long, but looking back, I can't identify a single part I would have cut. In those 700+ pages, Hill gives us the full gamut of horror, from the scientific (a spore that causes humans to spontaneously combust), to the supernatural (what was really going on with Nelson Heinrich?), to psychotic cult leaders, to the worst horror of all: man's inhumanity to man. Each character's actions, no matter how heinous, made perfect sense in the context of that character's background, personality, and interpersonal relationships, which I think is what the best horror fiction is meant to achieve: that feeling of "there, but for the grace of God, go I." The Fireman, Harper, Allie, Carol, Ben, Michael, the Seacoast Incinerators, the residents of Machias, and, yes, even Jakob - c'est moi. I received a free copy of The Fireman through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

    The Fireman

    Awesome read. Hoping for a sequel. Hill is a Master storyteller. The characters are full of color.

    Great Book

    I loved this book. Joe Hill writes people you care about, and you want everything to turn out well for them.

    An great story that captures your attention

    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this author's family. This story is really well told, it made me what to rush to the next chapter and to take my time and savour the tale. It was an enjoyable journey that ended too soon. A must read.
