Joe Hill dissects enduring human experiences in this masterful collection of short fiction in 13 intense tales of supernatural suspense, including “In The Tall Grass,” one of two co-written stories with Stephen King, the inspiration for Netflix’s terrifying feature film.
A tiny gate that opens up to a world of fairy-tale wonders becomes the blood-drenched field for a crime gang in “Faun.” A grieved librarian sits behind the wheel of an antique bookmobile in “Late Returns” to give fresh readings to the dead. Two young friends are stumbling on the body of a plesiosaur at the edge of the water in “By the Silver Lake of Lake Champlain,” a discovery that forces them to face the inevitable reality of their own mortality… and other horrors lurking in the shivering depths of the water. And suspense shimmers in the rising heat of the Nevada desert as a faceless trucker finds himself trapped in a sinister dance in “Throttle,” co-writtenwith Stephen King, with a group of motorcycle outlaws.
Full Throttle is a darkly conceived odyssey through the depths of the human psyche, featuring two previously unpublished stories and a series of disturbing chillers. This mines our tormented memories, latent weaknesses, and lowest fears, hypnotic and disquieting, and shows this exceptional talent at its finest.
