I haven't read Horns yet but HSB is absolutely fantastic. Terrifying and surprisingly fast paced, there's basically a new plot twist on every single page. Compare this to his King's first book, Carrie, and he's already off to a better start than his father. This is going to be a hell of an interesting career to follow.
