Summary, etc.:
"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 Featuring two previously unpublished stories, and a brace of shocking chillers, Full Throttle is a darkly imagined odyssey through the complexities of the human psyche.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"-- Provided by publisher.
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 August #1
    *Starred Review* Hill returns to short stories (after the novella collection Strange Weather, 2017), where his terrifying genius most brightly shines. The stories that follow the heartfelt introduction, most of which were first printed elsewhere, including one previously only available on LP, incorporate tropes of psychological suspense, science fiction, dark fantasy, and of course horror. Every piece is driven by anxiety and unease and features Hill's trademark characters, who feel absolutely real. But it is also the sense of place that dazzles, whether it's a sinister version of Narnia in "Faun," on a coastal pier in "Dark Carousel," or on a plane as WWIII breaks out in "You Are Released." Hill lulls the reader into deep enjoyment, even as terror lies just around the corner. He rounds out this superb collection with insightful notes and a surprise fourteenth story hidden in "About the Author. The tale that will be the biggest hit with library workers and patrons is the beautiful, elegiac "Late Returns," featuring a grieving bookmobile driver who sometimes delivers books to ghosts. This is a collection of single-serve, immersive horror for fans of collections by Paul Tremblay, Stephen Graham Jones, Samanta Schewbin, and Elllen Datlow's anthologies.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Several stories, including one written with Hill's father, Stephen King, are in development for TV and Netflix, so be ready for increased demand for this already super-popular author.
