I have been on a bit of a Joe Hill kick lately and recently just finished the last book of his that I needed to read, his collection of short stories 20th Century Ghosts. Now I have to wait for his new release later this year! As with any collection of stories, some are stronger than others. In this collection there are horror stories, much like the novels that Mr. Hill is now known for, mixed with other oddities and strange stories that really are unique. This was an entertaining and fast read and I truly did enjoy most of the stories, as for the ones I didn't like so much, well I'm sure that there are others out there who love them. You can't please everyone all the time. Still I give this collection 4.5/5 stars and suggest you pick it up, especially if you are new to Joe Hill and want a sampling of his writing style. I still prefer his full length novels, but to me the longer the better as long as it is a good story. (sorry I had written a better review by my blog here ate it before I could publish.)
