Cemetery Dance Publications Announces Signed Limited Edition of Strange Weather By Joe Hill 

Strange Weather represents a major Cemetery Dance Publications special event! These four short novels by #1 New York Times bestselling author Joe Hill will be published as four individual hardcover special editions housed together in a custom-made slipcase. Each volume will feature artwork by a different artist personally selected by the author to bring his vision to life and we’ll be unveiling their covers over the next few months! We’ve never published anything like this before and due to Joe Hill’s incredible popularity we expect these sets to sell very quickly.

These set collects four original and chilling novels, ingeniously wrought gems of terror by Joe Hill, the brilliantly imaginative, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman.

Snapshot will feature artwork by Gabriel Rodríguez
Rain will feature artwork by Ray Dillon
Loaded will feature artwork by Zach Howard
Aloft will feature artwork by Charles Paul Wilson III

“Snapshot” is the disturbing story of a Silicon Valley adolescent who finds himself threatened by “The Phoenician,” a tattooed thug who possesses a Polaroid Instant Camera that erases memories, snap by snap.

A young man takes to the skies to experience his first parachute jump… and winds up a castaway on an impossibly solid cloud, a Prospero’s island of roiling vapor that seems animated by a mind of its own in “Aloft.”

On a seemingly ordinary day in Boulder, Colorado, the clouds open up in a downpour of nails—splinters of bright crystal that shred the skin of anyone not safely under cover. “Rain” explores this escalating apocalyptic event, as the deluge of nails spreads out across the country and around the world.

In “Loaded,” a mall security guard in a coastal Florida town courageously stops a mass shooting and becomes a hero to the modern gun rights movement. But under the glare of the spotlights, his story begins to unravel, taking his sanity with it. When an out-of-control summer blaze approaches the town, he will reach for the gun again and embark on one last day of reckoning.

Masterfully exploring classic literary themes through the prism of the supernatural, Strange Weather is a stellar collection from one of the most vibrant imaginations working in horror today.

Read An Excerpt From Joe Hill’s Collection, Strange Weather

Bestselling author Joe Hill is set to follow up last year’s hit novel The Fireman with a collection of four bizarre and compelling new novellas, entitled Strange Weather.

The collection opens with “Snapshot,” the story of a man known as the Phoenician, who carries a modified Polaroid camera that can steal memories.

“Loaded” tells the story of a mall security guard who becomes an overnight hero to the gun rights movement after he single handedly takes on a mass shooter. But as his story of bravery begins to crack, so does his sanity, and on a breathlessly hot Florida afternoon, he reaches for the gun again, and embarks on a day of reckoning.

The third novella, “Aloft,” strands a young skydiver on an unaccountably solid cloud, leaving him a desperate castaway on an island in the sky. And in the finale, “Rain,” deadly storms of nails begin to shower down all across the United States in a glittering, lethal hail.

Read an excerpt HERE and pick up the book on October 24th.

If you’re in the market for a signed book, Water Street Books in Exeter, New Hampshire has you covered. They’re offering signed copies of Strange Weather to those who preorder. All the information is right here.
