2020 Audie AwardsA WINNER - Short Stories/Collections The number one New York Times best-selling author of The Fireman and Strange Weather returns with a dark and ingenious collection of 13 compelling short stories that showcase his ability to A??push genre conventions to new extremesA? (New York Times Book Review), performed by a stunning multi-cast featuring Zachary Quinto, Wil Wheaton, Kate Mulgrew, Neil Gaiman, Ashleigh Cummings, Joe Hill, Laysla De Oliveira, Nate Corddry, Connor Jessup, Stephen Lang, and George Guidall. In this masterful collection of short fiction, Joe Hill dissects timeless human struggles in 13 relentless tales of supernatural suspense, including A??In The Tall GrassA?, one of two stories cowritten 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 A??FaunA?. A grief-stricken librarian climbs behind the wheel of an antique bookmobile to deliver fresh reads to the dead in A??Late ReturnsA?. In A??By the Silver Water of Lake ChamplainA?, two young friends stumble on the corpse of a plesiosaur at the waterA??s edge, a discovery that forces them to confront the inescapable truth of their own mortality...and other horrors that lurk in the waterA??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 A??ThrottleA?, cowritten with Stephen King. Featuring two previously unpublished stories and a brace of shocking chillers, Full Throttle is a darkly imagined odyssey through the complexities of the human psyche.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 and demonstrates this exceptional talent at his very best.

Professional reviews

"A terrific cast of narrators lend their voices to 13 stories by Joe Hill, two of which are cowritten with his dad, Stephen King. Hill himself reads the utterly delightful introduction, remembering his childhood and his path to becoming a successful horror writer. The first story, "Throttle," follows, with Stephen Lang perfectly portraying a gang of bikers who are being terrorized by a maniacal trucker. From there, narrating duties are shared by Neil Gaiman, Zachary Quinto, Kate Mulgrew, and more. Listeners will find their own favorites. However, booklovers may agree that "Late Returns," narrated by Wil Wheaton--about a librarian slipping through time to offer the dead one last great read--is the gem of this collection. A.T.N.
