"Nice to see ya. To see ya, nice."

Greetings all:

A quick hello from Adelaide, Australia and one of its residents, who would like to thank Joe for writing one of the most unputdownable (and classic rock/metal friendly) horror novels in recent memory. I picked up Heart Shaped Box after reading rave reviews in Australia's now defunct but about to be resurrected Black Magazine and devoured the book at a rate of knots.

Much gratitude also for giving me another excuse to chat to the young lady behind the counter at my local book store, where I bought 20th Century Ghosts earlier today :wink:. Now I have a fair idea what its author is capable of, I expect to enjoy the collection every bit as much as Smoke And Mirrors or The Books of Blood, and will be first in line for a copy of Horns when it arrives in February.

Welcome, WS! You are in for a real treat! As much as I love NG & SMOKE & MIRRORS, I liked 20thCG more. Seriously good stuff. Can't wait to hear what you think. (And let us know how it turns out with the young lady...I still like a good romance every now and then!)
