"Strange Weather" by Joe Hill

New York Times bestselling author Joe Hill has really hit his stride when it comes to the thriller, horror and science-fiction genres. This is especially true of his bestseller Strange Weather. His titles have been made into films (such as Horns featuring Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe), and he is an Eisner Award winner for his graphic novel series, Locke & KeyStrange Weather embraces the theme of "what if?" A collection of four short novels, the book reads like a printed Twilight Zone. Addressing real-life horrors like gun violence and global warming, Strange Weather allows the reader to fall into the uncertainty of the real world. Strange Weather is what you would get if you put R.L. Stine's Goosebumps series in a blender with the local 6 o'clock news. If you enjoyed R.L. Stine's Say Cheese and Die as a kid, then I highly recommend Snapshot, which involves a young man coming into possession of a camera with supernatural abilities.
