If you haven't yet grabbed a copy of Joe Hill's THE FIREMAN, you need to. Original and gripping, a page-turner (George R.R.Martin)
In these four novellas, Joe Hill shows himself to be a high-concept übermaster. From a single idea, he weaves brilliantly inventive and character-driven stories that enthral and thrill. (Jamie Buxton Daily Mail)
Hill really embraces the shorter format to really grab the reader by the throat. This is a must. (SFX)
I devoured this book as if the pages themselves were on fire...an end of the world
tale with a blazing heart of hope at its core. A contender for book of the year
Joe Hill really could set the world on fire with this book: cleverly imagined and a compulsive read (Katherine Cowdrey, The Bookseller)
Joe Hill has always been good, but he's created something incandescent here,
soaring and original. He's a master storyteller who writes with fire in his veins
'Very well-drawn characters, some serious shocks, a great sense of humour and a willingness to break hearts as well as raise pulse rates.' (SciFiNow)
I would put money on this being huge. Can't put it down (Sam Baker, The Pool)
You'll be instantly hooked if you're obsessed with The Walking Dead. It's got the whole post-apocalyptic world nailed...there is a brilliant humour amid the darkness, and the action scenes feel like a movie (Cosmopolitan)
Taps into fears we all have about the world coming to an end, as Donald Trump stokes the fires of racial hatred in America, wars continue across the planet and diseases such as Zika and Ebola spread with shocking speed. (The Mail on Sunday)
A stunning collection of short novels from bestseller Joe Hill, this new collection from an award-winning author makes compelling and powerful reading.See all Product description

Each story has something different to offer but all four are nightmarish, surreal and far removed from traditional horror. I enjoyed the mix of themes and how the creation of these weird, wonderful characters is gently, carefully done. These people suffer and their stories, although fantasy, are unsettling. I think the general quality of the writing is strong throughout the collection but my favourite story has to be 'Loaded' because I enjoyed the mix of reality, fantasy and sheer desperation as characters become caught up in something from which there seems no escape!. 'Strange Weather' was an enjoyable read and certainly different.
I've nearly finished the last story but I could read a 100 more like it.
The best story being loaded which reminded me of Edward lee in its execution.
This isn't ìn any way a bad selection for a master story teller but for Mr hill I expected better.
Loaded was the least "supernatural" of them all & more a social commentary on gun control in the USA together with racial prejudices.
Aloft for me was a light smiley story with an almost dreamlike quality.
Rain was truly apocalyptic with a good measure of humour despite the seriousness of the story in parts.
All four stories contain enough detail to make you feel you know the characters. They are short enough to devour quickly leaving you feeling satisfied. All the stories are different to each other and run at a quick pace.
A fantastic collection.
