CHARACTERS Strange Weather

CHARACTERS Strange Weather READ Strange Weather 107 Spreads out across the country and around the worldIn “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 reckonin. I ve read almost every piece of work that Joe Hill has graced the world of literature with and I ve loved all of them but this was exceptionally brilliant Rather than dwell on monsters and ghosts the most terrifying aspect of Strange Weather was simply the horror of the human psyche and how far people will go to inflict pain upon others I ll be breaking this up by story as I typically do with novella reviews I ve combined the content warnings and will add them all at the end of the review for efficiency s sake I m placing these in order of how they are positioned in the ARC but the final copy may differ SNAPSHOT The idea that these days had been taken from her struck me as vile It was a swallow of curdled milk It was indecent Snapshot the first of four novellas tells a man s boyhood memories of the strange man with the polaroid and the bizarre things that each photo took along with it I found this to be my least favorite story in the book though it was still awfully horrifying to think of a camera that could take away than just a photo I found myself undeniably on edge from start to finish and found it to be an unsettling uniue entrance to the collection LOADED All it took to turn a CD into a knife or a tape gun into a45 was a little imagination a little panic and a lot of prejudice I have no words for how stunned I was when I realized what a blatantly political direction Joe was taking this story in Loaded is a perspective changing story that follows in the wake of mass shootings and tells of police brutality racism gun fanaticism and hate The villains in this story are so over the top that you find yourself desperately wanting not to believe in them despite the fact that as a citizen of the southern states I can certainly assure you that I have heard many of these arguments from acuaintances in my own life Note I m not interjecting politics into this and will leave my thoughts on gun ownership out of this but we ve all met at least one person who took things too far and that s what s happening in this story Loaded absolutely destroyed me I have never in my life cried through a horror story yet I could hardly regain composure in one moment before the next event had me sobbing again The hatred in the villain s heart left me hollow This was the most horrifying story I have ever read yet not a moment of it felt like fiction particularly in the wake of the shootings we ve seen over the last few years ALOFT Everything gets very surreal when you re falling from twelve thousand feet First of all if you have a fear of heights this story may not be one you want to take lightly I don t even have acrophobia and I still found my stomach turning at many of this story s descriptive moments When Aubrey s skydiving experience goes wrong he finds himself in a very interesting set of circumstances and well I ll let you go into this one blind but trust me you re in for a really uniue and bizarre ride RAIN When the rain fell most everyone was caught outside in it You wonder maybe why so many people died in that initial downpour In Rain we watch the beginning of an apocalypse through the eyes of a young woman named Honeysuckle As a rain of crystalline needles kills Honeysuckle s girlfriend and nearly all of her neighbors she sets off on a journey to inform her father in law of his daughter s passing only to be hunted by members of a local religious cult As she tries to navigate the empty streets of Denver and avoid being slashed to bits by the next storm she finds herself in a spiral of terrorism conspiraciesLike Loaded this story hit way too close to home for comfort though not on nearly as intense of a level Joe let his politics shine through once with a few catty remarks about a president who s a little too twitter happy and I found myself laughing despite the nature of the tale Of course you re never left smiling for long when it comes to a Joe Hill book but I found this to be a fantastic rounding out of the collectionAll in all Strange Weather averaged out to a 475 rating which I obviously will happily round up to 5 stars for my favorite horror author Now I m only sad that I have to wait for his next releaseContent warnings fat phobia ableism homophobia racism police brutality gun fanaticism sexism spousal abuse child death extreme violence religious fanaticismoccultism All uotes are taken from an ARC and may have been changed for the final publication Thank you so much to HarperCollins for providing me with this ARC in exchange for my honest reviewYou can find this review and on my blog

REVIEW ¸ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ð Joe Hill

CHARACTERS Strange Weather READ Strange Weather 107 A collection of four chilling novels ingeniously wrought gems of terror from the brilliantly imaginative #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman Joe Hill“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 snapA young man takes to the skies to experience. Simple explanations have the disappointing tendency to be the best explanations Only the rational counterargument was a pile of shit and I knew it I just didn t want to know it Joe Hill has taken a break between epic horror novels to put together a collection of four novellas under the title Strange Weather The title seems an afterthought frankly Only one of the stories actually incorporates weather that is certifiably strange But no matter Don t go looking for story one to relate to story two to story three to story four There are some links but they are minimal Read each tale on its own The stories were written here and there between this and that over several years Joe Hill from his site Maturity is not something that happens all at once It is not a border between two countries where once you cross the invisible line you are on the new soul of adulthood speaking the foreign tongue of grown ups It is like a distant broadcast and you are driving toward it and sometimes you can barely make it out through the hiss of static while other times the reception momentarily clears and you can pick up the signal with perfect clarity Snapshot focuses on loss of memory but not in the usual way A thuggish agent The Phoenician stalks a town uses a Polaroid like camera to extract recollections An eleven year old boy is charged with taking him on which will feel familiar to those of you who have read NOS4A2 a good soul everykid being confronted with adult challenges It is a chilling story tucking a bildungsroman into a nightmare experience while taking on the very real horror of dementia If we are our memories then what are we when those memories are gone Loaded is the oldest story in the book I ve had that one in my head ever since the massacre of twenty children in Newtown Connecticut from the Afterword Loaded takes on the very real life horror of gun violence and death by cop even death by mall cop focusing on the bad things that can happen when one mixes fear paranoia bigotry and greed with ready access to ordnance Randall Kelloway is a mall guard a wannabe cop who keeps getting rejected from the police force for the very good reason that he is psychologically unfit He is also in deep poo in his home life having earned an Order of Protection for dangerous behavior with his ex and child He is inordinately fond of guns and imagines himself using them to heroic purpose When a violent situation unfolds at the mall guns blaze When Randy emerges from the smoke he is seen as the white knight he always imagined himself to be Aisha is a reporter who suspects that the mall shooting may not have gone down uite the way Randall said and digs relentlessly to find out the truth Hill uses an encroaching brush fire common in the real Florida in which this is set to add to the constant ramp up of tension Although it can feel didactic at times Loaded may be the most effective horror story of the collection as it is the one we are likeliest to encounter in real life Hill relies on flawed corrupted humanity instead of the supernatural to jangle your nerves and succeeds in hitting his target You knew what was real not by its ualities but by its imperfections Aloft is the most Twilight Zone like of the collection Aubrey Griffin is trying to impress a young lady a band mate Harriet Their friend June had passed recently and they with others are honoring June by doing things on her bucket list Sadly Aubrey is scared out of his wits by the impending parachute jump and is about to bail But the plane loses power mysteriously Probably something to do with the UFO like cloud formation they had spotted a short time earlier Aubrey has to bail for real But before his chute can open he makes a relatively soft landing on something that is not exactly solid ground This is not your typical UFO being a mile or so long having a malleable surface and the very non UFO like capacity to make one s wishes real Which is where we get into the content portion of our program What if you could have whatever you wanted physically Of course there is that pesky element of core beneath the surface and coming to grips with what one wants and what one can and cannot have A thoughtful piece although not particularly scary At the end there is a mention of New Hampshire where Hill lives making one wonder how much of Joe was in Aubrey I think Rain arose from a desire to spoof myself and my own sprawling end of the world novel The Fireman I m a big believer in making fun of yourself before anyone else can Rain is a shorter example of the sort of post apocalyptic sci fi romp Hill has done so well in the longer form But the rain that falls is a hard and it s a hard it s a hard it s a hard and it s a hard rain indeed No suishy oobleck for Hill nosiree His rain arrives in crystalline needles ones that penetrate instead of melting Twenty something Honeysuckle Speck regularly babysits for nine year old Templeton Blake a kid with some medical issues He likes to call himself Little Dracula and Honeysuckle loves him Good thing he is a mostly at home kid as vast numbers of those caught outside when the first hard rain arrives fail to make it back inside The story follows Honeysuckle as she tries to get from Boulder to Denver to get news to the father of a dear friend enduring some of the horrors one might expect in a road trip story and some you might notThere are characters to engage with in every tale The pre teen in Snapshot is a classic HillKing kid who must test his mettle against the hostilely weird Readers who have not always been members of the ins all their lives will relate Aisha gives us someone worth rooting for in Loaded Aubrey in Aloft offers a pretty relatable example of unreuited attraction and Honeysuckle in Rain checks all the boxes for a post apocalyptic heroine without the Disney songs If you are looking for the sort of large scale epic horror story that Hill has produced with The Fireman and NOS4A2 you will be disappointed If however you go into Strange Weather expecting material like his short story work as in 20th Century Ghosts you should be pleased Hill will take you from Ice 9 to Cloud 9 from fear to wonder giving you some good nightmare material and a few sparks to spur a bit of introspection The forecast is for good reading ahead Review posted August 4 2017Publication hardcover October
