Hill and King?

Anyone notice that Joe is not reading under the dome? Actually, King isn't on any of his book lists. Does anyone know if they even like each other?

I think they hate each other.

Okay, I'm kidding. I'm sure they each read the other's work, probably many times before it even goes to the printer.

They have their own thing going. King doesnt really need any publicity, does he?lol

Actually Joe has THE DEAD ZONE on his recommended list. (That one and THE STAND are my personal favs of SK).
I think Joe is just trying really hard to establish himself without appearing to "ride the coat-tails". Can you imagine how dismissive people would be if he played that angle? The truth is Joe is a really, really good writer on his own and I respect the road he has taken to get to where he is. And I love his work every bit as much as I love SK.

LOL! :mrgreen:

Picking up on what DJ said...can you imagine the perks of being a member of the family? To be able to read all those books before they're published? Wonder if they would adopt me?

I just bought HSBox. I was in the store looking for something scary..something different. I wasn't looking for any particular author or title. I can't put this book down.I absolutely am a new fan of Joe's writing. I never knew SKing was his father untill I came to this site...and you know what, although I have been a king fan for a long time (Needful Things being my personal favorite read by him) I did not pick up this book nor am I reading it for any other reason than Joe Hill is very talented in his own right. Last time I looked this is the JOE HILL message board. :D

Im sure Joe Hill will be reading Under The Dome, I really enjoyed Duma Key but when I saw the size of The Dome I thought I was going to struggle with it as it is Im over a hundred pages through and it's sucking me in.

Joe will want to establish himself in his own right he actually tried not to make it public that he was SK's son. Im sure he thinks most of his dad's work is awesome but will still try to distance himself from Stephen just to form his own identity.
