Event photos: Joe Hill grabs life by the horns

On March 22, Joe Hill launched his new supernatural thriller Horns, while (naturally) wearing light-up devil horns at an event hosted by Toronto sci-fi bookstore BAKKA-Phoenix and the Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy. In 2007, to prove that he could make it on his own, the author sold his first novel, Heart-Shaped Box, without revealing to his publisher that he is the son of horror royalty Stephen King. The move certainly paid off, as that debut won the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel. (Photo by David McDonald)
