    Joe Hill - Full Throttle:

    To be released October 1st, 2019:

    From Harper Collins -

    The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman and Strange Weather returns with a dark and ingenious collection of thirteen compelling short stories that showcase his ability to “push genre conventions to new extremes” (New York Times Book Review).

    In this masterful collection of short fiction, Joe Hill dissects timeless human struggles in thirteen relentless tales of supernatural suspense, including “In The Tall Grass,” one of two stories co-written with Stephen King, basis for the terrifying feature film from Netflix.
    A little door that opens to a world of fairy tale wonders becomes the blood-drenched stomping ground for a gang of hunters in “Faun.” A grief-stricken librarian climbs behind the wheel of an antique Bookmobile to deliver fresh reads to the dead in “Late Returns.” In “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain,” two young friends stumble on the corpse of a plesiosaur at the water’s edge, a discovery that forces them to confront the inescapable truth of their own mortality . . . and other horrors that lurk in the water’s shivery depths. And tension shimmers in the sweltering heat of the Nevada desert as a faceless trucker finds himself caught in a sinister dance with a tribe of motorcycle outlaws in “Throttle,” co-written with Stephen King.
    Featuring two previously unpublished stories, and a brace of shocking chillers, Full Throttle is a darkly imagined odyssey through the complexities of the human psyche. Hypnotic and disquieting, it mines our tormented secrets, hidden vulnerabilities, and basest fears, and demonstrates this exceptional talent at his very best.

    Sounds great except for the title. Since the story Throttle is in there, I think Full Throttle is not the best idea for a title.

    I realized after I posted this that the title is a little different. The full title is Full Throttle: Stories

    I also wish it contained more then two new stories since I believe I have read most of his published work. If when I finally see a table of contents I see more that I have not read I will be thrilled!

    I think I'm pretty caught up as well as far as short stories go. Looking forward to the new stuff.

    Included in Mr. Hills newsletter today:


    It'll be a while before the next novel, but you won't have to wait too long for the next book. FULL THROTTLE, a collection of thirteen short stories, will be out this October. It includes a pair of new ones: "Mums," about a kid who loses his mother, and grows a new one; and "Late Returns," about a young man who takes a job driving a Bookmobile and finds himself lending books to the dead. There are also two collaborations with my dad, "Throttle," and "In The Tall Grass." The latter will be a movie from Netflix this October. Then there's a round-up of a whole bunch of other stories I've written in the years since my first collection, 20th CENTURY GHOSTS. They include "Faun," "Wolverton Station," "Dark Carousel," and "By The Silver Waters of Lake Champlain" (which has been filmed as an episode of Creepshow, airing on Shudder, also probably out this fall -- I've been awfully lucky with the adaptation stuff just of late).

    It won't be hard to find a signed copy -- somehow I have wound up agreeing to sign almost 8,000 copies this summer. But if you don't want to take any chances, you can pre-order your signed and personalized copy from Water Street Books right now. They ship everywhere. Note: I won't be doodling in FULL THROTTLE cos I haven't thought of a good doodle yet. I may not be able to doodle stuff at all, just to make sure I sign all the stuff I promised I'd sign.

    Thanks, as always, guys, for picking up the book. I hope you enjoy it.

    Since it sounds like he is not coming to the Northwest I will be ordering from Waterstreet. They have always been great to deal with.

    I have not seen stops or dates but somewhere I read that he would only be making a few appearances and the were all in or around New England. I am still hoping for a Northwest visit but do not believe it will happen.

    Thanks for this. I preordered a copy signed to Jeffingoff. So it should have a limitation of 1/1. I'm debating whether to just collect Joe Hill books or collect and actually read Joe Hill books.

    What is this "reading" you speak of?

    I have not ordered my copy yet. I may request it be inscribed to Jeffingoff as well! Mr. Hill tells a pretty good tale, I highly recommend dusting these puppy's off and giving them a read.

    I'm not entirely sure but I think it's something you do if the book is written by someone other than Bentley Little. You're supposed to look at all the words after the signature and in between the art in a linear fashion.

    You monster! By the time FULL THROTTLE roars up to my mailbox, I will have on my shelves The Fireman, two copies of Horns, A Little Silver Book of Sharp Shiny Slivers, At Home in the Dark (Faun), and miscellaneous short stories in other anthologies I believe. I SHOULD also have CD's Strange Weather. But I can't guarantee I will have read a word of Mr. Hill's. I plan on starting with Horns for the record. Is there a record?
