Horns by Joe Hill

Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things.  He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache… and a pair of horns growing from his temples.

Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community.  Ig had it all, and more – he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic.

Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone – raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances – with Ig the only suspect.  He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty.

Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life.  Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere.  It’s time for a little revenge; it’s time the devil had his due.

The New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box returns with Horns,
a relentless new supernatural thriller.

Peer & Press Reviews

Horns is many things: a tragic love story, a tale of revenge, an examination of human emotion and a startling picture of what love and hate can drive people to do.  It’s lucid, funny and intelligent.  It’s also sad, touching and – at times – utterly heartbreaking.  But most of all it’s utterly brilliant in conception and execution, a startling mix of childhood joy, adult despair, and a touch of midsummer magic.  Horns is one of the most emotionally-engaging books I’ve ever read.

James Long, Speculative Horizons

On the level of a horror thriller, Horns is a compelling read.  What makes it exceptional is Hill’s psychological insight as he dramatises Ig’s plight, Tourenau’s egotism and Merrin’s heartbreaking dilemma.  As an examination of the forces of good and evil, and all the shades in between, Horns is a remarkable achievement.

Eric Brown The Guardian

I've read it a few times over the years and each time I come out of the experience having a completely new interpretation.  Out of everything he’s written, from his numerous short stories to his novels to his comics, it’s Horns I always circle back to.
