I've come to realize that I will read anything Mr. Hill puts out; he has proven himself far too talented to ignore. With 'Twittering from the Circus of the Dead,' he once again shows his knack for originality (to my knowledge, this is the first story to be written in Twitter-feed form) and the ability to craft brilliance with few words.
'Twittering' is a short read that starts off with the sarcastic, irritated Twitter-rants of a teenage girl on a family vacation. Her 'dialogue' is immature and juvenile (done intentionally so, I believe), yet humorous. Hill employs the classic horror cliché of 'family takes a wrong turn in the woods' and they wind up at a giant black circus tent in the middle of nowhere. Here is where the story picks up speed quickly and increasingly terrorizes until the finish. And yes, it gets a bit graphic (which is the best part!), but one ought to expect that from the son of Stephen King.
I believe Hill has written this for the pure fun of it, and if you take this for what it is, you will have fun... and then you'll get slapped by something horrifyingly creepy. If you've never read Joe Hill, I wouldn't necessarily recommend starting here (read one of his novels first), but devotees will love the innate campy-ness and gruesome qualities of this short tale. This is one you'll finish with a smug smile across your face.
