The Fireman by Joe Hill

Nobody knew where the virus came from.

Fox News said it had been set loose by ISIS, using spores that had been invented by the Russians in the 1980s.

MSNBC said sources indicated it might’ve been created by engineers at Halliburton and stolen by culty Christian types fixated on the Book of Revelation.

CNN reported both sides.

While every TV station debated the cause, the world burnt.

Pregnant school nurse, Harper Grayson, had seen lots of people burn on TV, but the first person she saw burn for real was in the playground behind the school.

With the epic scope of The Passage and the emotional impact of The Road, this is one woman’s story of survival at the end of the world.

Winner of the Best Horror category in the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards

Peer & Press Reviews

This is a book that starts with a bang and then relentlessly builds.  Joe managed to make my skin crawl in the first chapter, turning what should be a time for celebration into something decidedly creepy.  At the mid-point of a lengthy book it became near un-putdownable, in that horrifying ‘can’t look away from a car crash’ kind of way.  Although the details are dark and even horrible, the narrative pull is relentless and unstoppable.

Mark Yon, SSS World

Very well-drawn characters, some serious shocks, a great sense of humour and a willingness to break hearts as well as raise pulse rates.


If you haven’t yet grabbed a copy of Joe Hill’s The Fireman, you need to.  Original and gripping, a page-turner.

George R. R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series
