One of the strongest overall works in Hill's already illustrious career. . . . An exciting sign of so many wonderful things to come. --Cemetery Dance An essential instant read for Hill's fans and a solid introduction for new readers. --Library Journal The novella form allows Mr. Hill to get you deeply fixed in the setting before the moment everything goes fantastic... All four stories in Strange Weather are just the right length to read at a sitting, one at a time. Horror, they tell us, is only one step away. --Wall Street Journal Its ideas have powerful emotional and political resonance. --Publishers Weekly It's good to see [Hill] flex his authorial muscles with a different form. Weather changes and we never know what to expect. The same is true for great writers. --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Each selection in Strange Weather is a well-crafted piece of storytelling, with characters to care about and conflicts creepy, mind-boggling and action-packed.--Portland Press Herald The Weather quartet unleashes a perfect storm of styles, from a slow-burn thriller to ethereal sci-fi, all told with a consistently strong voice.... Hill whips up emotional moments in all four that strike like lightning and thunderously rumble your soul. --USA Today [I]n times like these, when real-world terrors outstrip our night terrors, how can a novelist possibly compete? Joe Hill, the author of several terrifying bestsellers, rises to this challenge in Strange Weather. --Washington Post Hill has a way of turning words to make them glitter, and casually speaking to readers to convince us that the world he presents entirely, physically exists. [Strange Weather] hard to shake for hours after you've finished it. --Guam Daily Post Joe Hill is one of the 21st century's pre-eminent writers, not just of the dark fantastic, but of American Literature. Strange Weather is a must read. --SFF World A striking selection of novellas ranging from the playfully apocalyptic to the wickedly political... [Strange Weather] is a demonstration of [Hill's] range and readiness to tell the hell out of any tale, be it supernatural or straight, silly or completely serious. --Tor.com [A]nother must-read from a increasingly impressive storyteller [...] Strange Weather speaks to the versatility of Joe Hill's craft, telling deeply disturbing stories in which cataclysmic forces of nature seem like a gentle rain when set against the actions of villains who are all too human. --barnesandnoble.com There are few authors as deft at marrying pulse-pounding action and a sense of inescapable dread than Joe Hill. Fans of his masterful thrillers NOS4A2 and The Fireman will find plenty to love in his new collection of four short novels. --BookPage A four-pack of mayhem in this sparkling collection of short novels. . . .Worth waiting in line for, if you're a Hill fan. If you're not, this is the book to turn you into one. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Hill is not only maturing as a writer of relevantly chilling tales but he is also emerging as a distinct voice for our complicated times. --Booklist (starred review)
