Road Rage With Stephen King And Joe Hill

Road Rage unites Richard Matheson’s classic Duel and the contemporary work it inspired—two power-packed short stories by three of the genre’s most acclaimed authors. Duel, an unforgettable tale about a driver menaced by a semi truck, was the source for Stephen Spielberg’s acclaimed first film of the same name. Throttle, by father and son, Stephen King and Joe Hill, is a duel of a different kind, pitting a faceless trucker against a tribe of motorcycle outlaws, in the simmering Nevada desert. Their battle is fought out on twenty miles of the most lonely road in the country, a place where the only thing worse than not knowing what you’re up against, is slowing down.

The audiobook CD ($13.59) can be ordered HERE and will be released on February 24th, 2009.

  1. While this is good news for King fans, I am once again dissapointed that the majority of readers will have to wait an undetermined amount of time (as of this date) for some sort of mass market version

    You see, aside from this audio version there is a big anthology print edition (which is sold out) that contains the two featured stories in the audio version in addition to even more writers
    Theres some detail at this link

    and then once there, theres another link to the books webpage with even more detail

    beware though– all these links have SPOILERS about the story so if you would rather just hear the story fresh then seek out the audio version

    But again, it would be nice if they would announce a rough ballpark date for the mass market edition thats unsigned, unlimited, unnumbered and uncollectable for those of us who just want to READ THE STORIES at a reasonable price (say between 19.99 and 26.00)

    I would think that a simultanious release would still see a sell out on the limited edition collectable version for those out there who appreciate such belles and whistles

    But once again…the bulk of us “Constant Readers” have to wait

  2. additional point– while this audio version would be my best option for now UNTIL the cheaper version of the collectable book is released, when it comes to King and son, I much prefer the written word
    So….I’ll wait.
