Know Joe Hill? He’s the bestselling author who’s been scaring the socks off readers with books such as Heart-Shaped Box, Horns, and N0S4A2. And if there was any doubt about who is THE author you should turn to for terror, Hill’s upcoming novel, The Fireman, on sale May 17th, should set the record straight. In the midst of a world on fire due to a deadly infectious spore that leads to spontaneous combustion, a sweet but tough-as-nails nurse will stop at nothing to carry her baby to term. But to survive, she must turn to a mysterious, wise-cracking Brit dressed in a fireman’s outfit who can control flames to protect the innocent. This is edge-of-your-seat reading (assuming you’re not curled up under the covers shaking uncontrollably).
If you’re not yet appropriately excited (but of course you are!), a brand new book trailer has been released to help set the stage. Check it out below or on youtube. And while you’re at it, hop on over to Edelweiss to check out the egalley, available here. The fireman is coming. Stay cool.
