Publisher's Summary

Four short novels from the author of The Fireman and Horns, ranging from creepy horror to powerful explorations of our society.
One autumnal day in Boulder, Colorado, the clouds open up in a downpour of nails, splinters of bright crystal that tear apart anyone who isn't safely under cover. 'Rain' explores this escalating apocalyptic event, as clouds of nails spread out across the country and the world. Amidst the chaos, a girl studying law enforcement takes it upon herself to resolve a series of almost trivial mysteries...apparently harmless puzzles that turn out to have lethal answers.
In 'Loaded', a mall security guard heroically stops a mass shooting and becomes a hero to the modern gun movement. Under the hot glare of the spotlights, though, his story begins to unravel, taking his sanity with it....
'Snapshot, 1988' tells the story of a kid in Silicon Valley who finds himself threatened by The Phoenician, a tattooed thug who possesses a Polaroid that can steal memories....
And in 'Aloft', a young man takes to the skies to experience parachuting for the first time...and winds up a castaway on an impossibly solid cloud, a Prospero's island of roiling vapour that seems animated by a mind of its own.
Read by Wil Wheaton, Kate Mulgrew, Dennis Boutsikaris and Stephen Lang.

A Return To Form for Joe Hill....

I didn't like The Fireman, it was a good idea, that started well, but eventally was ruined by being a bloated, saccharine mess. These for short novels are far tighter and tense affairs. Like lots of good genre fiction the stories hold a mirror up to contemporary situations, especially the current political climate in America. Each story is a great, for their own reasons, and the superb narrations really add to a great audio experience.

1 star for that 'South African' accent.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

You know the one. Sometimes it was Jamaican. Sometimes Russian. I had to turn it off, but wanted to know how it ended so I powered through. It would have been great because he can do the other voices well, but did someone seriously listen to that and go 'Okay! We're good to distribute this to the general public!'?!
