Author Joe Hill Throws Some "Horns" Up In Portland!

I first heard about author Joe Hill via Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance. He was reading "Heart Shaped Box" and said it was really creepy (in a good way!). As soon as he said the words "It's about a rock star who buys a ghost off the internet", I was on the Powell's website, buying my copy. It was definitely creepy, yet full of dark humor and lots of rock-n-roll references. I loved it! So, you can imagine how excited I was to get Joe's new book, "Horns", about a guy who falls asleep after a drunken night....only to wake up sportin' a new set of horns...yes, on his head! Then people start confessing their deepest, ugliest secrets to him and he decides to use this new power to find a murderer.

Joe Hill is coming to Portland this Wednesday (March 3) for a reading/book signing at Powell's City of Books on Burnside at 7:30pm. I had the chance to talk to Joe about his new book.....rock-n-roll....which of his dad's (Stephen King) books made the best movies....etc! Hope you enjoy the chat below and I hope you can make to Powell's Wednesday night!

Joe Hill talks about "Horns"....his KISS obsession....his dad, Stephen King...and more!

Oh and did I mention how handsomely devilish and Rock&Roll he is! Dreamy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorta Kenny Loggins/Jackson Brown look,maybe Bob Seager circa early 70's.

One admits that today's life is expensive, nevertheless different people need money for various issues and not every one gets big sums cash. Thus to get quick credit loans and just bank loan should be good solution.
