On 19 Nov. 1915 he was executed by a firing squad. After his execution, his body was sent to Chicago for cremation. His ashes were placed in envelopes and mailed throughout the world to different people and labor organizations to scatter. Most organizations scattered them.

Wenn es um Rache geht, steckt der Teufel im Detail ... Völlig verkatert schaut Ig Perrish morgens in den Spiegel: Ihm wachsen Teufelshörner aus der Stirn! Was hat er in der Nacht zuvor getrieben? Dabei hat er schon sein Fegefeuer durchlebt, weil ihm niemand glaubt, dass er nichts mit der grausamen Ermordung seiner Freundin zu tun hat. Als Ig sich auf die Suche nach dem wahren Übeltäter macht, ist auf einmal die Hölle los ... Ig Perrish führt ein privilegiertes Leben. Als Sohn eines berühmten Vaters und Bruder eines TV-Stars wächst er in einem Hort des Wohlstands und der Glückseligkeit auf. Und er hat Merrin, mit der er den Zauber der unendlichen Liebe erlebt. Bis zu dem Tag, an dem Merrin unter ungeklärten Umständen bestialisch ermordet wird und der Verdacht auf ihn fällt. Mangels Beweisen wird er aber freigesprochen. Eines Morgens wacht Ig nach einer durchzechten, erinnerungslosen Nacht mit Teufelshörnern auf der Stirn auf. Mehr noch: Auf einmal besitzt er die unheimliche Gabe, die dunkelsten Geheimnisse und verborgensten Gelüste derjenigen zu kennen, die er berührt. Diese neue Macht will er nutzen, um den Übeltäter zu finden, der Merrin umgebracht und sein Leben zerstört hat. Alles Gutsein und Beten hat nichts geholfen, jetzt ist es an der Zeit, einen Pakt mit dem Bösen zu schliessen und teuflische Rache zu nehmen ... Joe Hill wurde 1972 in Neuengland geboren. Für seine Kurzgeschichten, die in zahlreichen Zeitschriften und Anthologien erschienen, wurde er mehrfach ausgezeichnet, unter anderem mit dem 'Ray Bradbury Fellowship', dem 'Bram Stoker Award' und dem renommierten 'World Fantasy Award'. Er lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen drei Kindern in New Hampshire. Seine Bücher erscheinen im Heyne Verlag, zuletzt der Roman Teufelszeug

"Tells the story of Joe Hill (1879-1915), a Swedish immigrant to American who became a songwriter, cartoonist, and labor organizer for the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and whose 1915 execution by the state of Utah for a crime he probably did not commit transformed him into a martyr for the labor movement and an international folk hero."--Container
