Joe Hill (and The Fireman) are coming to the UK!

We are thrilled to be able to share with you the details of Joe Hill’s upcoming UK tour to celebration the hotly anticipated release of The Fireman! Joe Hill will tour the UK from the 6th- 11th June.

The Fireman is already one of the most talked about books of the summer and it has been gathering incredible reviews from both the US and the UK.

‘Ominously superb’- Nick Harkaway

‘Joe Hill is a master storyteller who writes with fire in his veins’ – Lauren Beukes

‘A Lord of the Flies for the Twitter generation. Clever, gripping and packs a hell of a punch.’ – Joanne Harris

‘An end of the world tale with a blazing heart of hope at its core. A contender for book of the year’- Sarah Pinborough

‘This book is incredible’ – Lev Grossman

‘I would put money on this being huge. Can’t put it down’ – Sam Baker, The Pool

‘Joe Hill really could set the world on fire with this book: cleverly imagined and a compulsive read’ – Katherine Cowdrey, The Bookseller

‘relentless and unstoppable.’ – Mark Yon, SFFWORLD.COM

‘Take the ideas, characters, and tone of Station Eleven (2014) and add a large helping of the action, villains, and unrelenting menace from Doctor Sleep (2013) and you have The Fireman, an excellent example of the very best that genre fiction has to offer readers today’ – Booklist


We cannot wait to share this chilling novel about a worldwide pandemic of spontaneous combustion that threatens to reduce civilization to ashes and a band of improbable heroes who battle to save it, led by one powerful and enigmatic man known as the Fireman. 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.

The fireman is coming. Stay cool.

In addition to the exciting tour news we’ve also got an incredible pre-order offer for a collectible Camp Wyndham t-shirt.
