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 Featuring two previously unpublished stories, and a bevy of shocking chillers, Full Throttle is a darkly imagined odyssey through the complexities of the human psyche.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.

La nostra recensione

I found this to be an incredibly strong collection. While I think that Full Throttle would be worth purchasing for Late Returns alone, there are a host of great stories here. And they're varied enough that there's something here for just about everyone * Novel Notions * Hill calls to mind Harlan Ellison at his absolute best, with a penchant for cruel characters learning hard truths * San Francisco Chronicle * This new collection of short fiction by acclaimed horror and suspense writer Joe Hill proves that Hill can do it all * CrimeReads * Full Throttle is a great collection and just more proof that Hill is one of the great storytellers of the early 21st century. Highly recommended * SFF World * This collection cements Hill's reputation as a versatile master of scares both subtle and shocking * Publishers Weekly (starred review) * In his new collection of short stories, Joe Hill shows how insanely good he is at shocking, terrible, whoa, cover-your-mouth-and-gasp endings . . . Seamless and finely crafted work * New York Times Book Review * The poet laureate of everyday terrors returns with a baker's dozen of deliciously sinister tales. . . . Miniature masterworks of modern horror, proving that life is hard, weird, and always fatal * Kirkus (starred review) *
