Synopsis

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 and thebasis 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, soon to be an episode on Shudder TVs Creepshow, two young friends stumble on the corpse of a plesiosaur at the waters edge, a discovery that forces them to confront the inescapable truth of their own mortality . . . and other horrors that lurk in the waters 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motorcycle outlaws in Throttle, co-written with Stephen King.Replete with shocking chillers, including two previously unpublished stories written expressly for this volume (Mums and Late Returns) and another appearing in print for the first time (Dark Carousel), Full Throttle is a darkly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.
