Joe Hill talks NOS4A2
Joe Hill has posted a trailer for his phenomenal new book NOS4A2 (NOS4R2 for UK readers) on his website. Having been lucky enough to receive an early review copy This Is Horror are able to bring you this preview snippet from our forthcoming review of the book.
NOS4R2 is a trip into the ever expanding and fascinating imagination of Joe Hill. This book represents a huge step forward in terms of scope and quality of writing for Hill, which when you think about the books he has produced previously is an incredible achievement in itself. NOS4R2 is an exciting, exhilarating and terrifying journey through fantastical worlds that are hidden from most people and we should be thankful that it stays that way…
