Read An Exclusive Excerpt And See The Cover of Joe Hill’s Blazing Thriller The Fireman

1

Joe Hill, author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns, guest editor of the first Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy anthology, and offspring of a little-known writer named Stephen King, will release his new thriller, The Fireman, next May.

The Fireman sees the world suffering a global pandemic — but this isn’t your typical Contagion flu or World War Z zombie disease. When you’re affected with “Dragonscale,” as it’s colloquially known, lovely black and gold marks appear on your body — but eventually, you’ll burst into flames. The only afflicted person who hasn’t spontaneously combusted is a mysterious, iron-bar wielding figure called The Fireman, who has somehow taught himself to control the fire threatening to escape his body, and wanders the streets trying to save afflicted people from “Cremation Squads” who have taken it upon themselves to burn any black and gold-flecked people they see.

While The Fireman doesn’t hit shelves until May 17, 2016, Entertainment Weekly is thrilled to present the book’s cover reveal and a sneak peek at the prologue. To pre-order a signed first edition, click HERE, and to pre-order The Fireman in hardcover or e-book, head to HarperCollins. (Reprinted from Entertainment Weekly)

The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2015

The Best American series is the premier annual showcase for the country’s finest short fiction and nonfiction. Each volume’s series editor selects notable works from hundreds of magazines, journals, and websites. A special guest editor—a leading writer in the field—then chooses the best twenty or so pieces to publish. This unique system has made the Best American series the most respected—and most popular—of its kind.

Now, with Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy, series editor John Joseph Adams will curate a new anthology series that will demonstrate what science fiction and fantasy literature is capable of—that will demonstrate that science fiction and fantasy is more than just retreads of Star Trek and Star Wars, that it is the genre of Flowers for Algernon and Fahrenheit 451, of The Man in the High Castle, The Book of the New Sun, and A Canticle for Leibowitz, that it is the genre of Wild Seed and The Left Hand of Darkness, and of Little, Big and The Sparrow and Dhalgren.

Fans of the genres know that the finest science fiction and fantasy is on par with the finest works of literature in any genre, and the goal of this anthology series is to prove it.

The 2015 volume will collect the best material published in 2014, selected by series editor John Joseph Adams and guest editor Joe Hill.

The 320 page softcover book will be released on October 6, 2015 and can be pre-ordered HERE.
