i was priveleged to meet Joe Hill at #Fantasycon2015 and to be on a panel with him about surviving the end of the world and post apocalyptic fiction. On that panel, he talked about The Fireman

Gollancz will be releasing this highly anticipated title on 17th May 2016.

Joe Hill has already earned a reputation as one of the foremost horror writers in the world – his second novel, Horns, was made into a major film starring Daniel Radcliffe in 2014 – but The Fireman marks a remarkable new direction for the bestselling author. With the epic scope of The Passage and the emotional impact of The Road, The Fireman is a gripping end-of-the-world thriller.

Set in a world overtaken by an incurable runaway pathogen that causes death by spontaneous combustion, the story follows school nurse Harper, who is determined to live long enough to deliver her baby. But when all it takes is a spark to start a deadly blaze, she’s going to need some help from the mysterious fireman.

At #Fantasycon2015 Iicked up a signed sampler, and I have to say, Im excited by this book.
