Who Can Save Us Now?

I got a copy of this one yesterday and I haven't seen it mentioned here before. It seams to be a collection of short stories about made up super heroes. It's edited by Joe's brother Owen and Joe has a story in it. Looks very interesting.

That's great news. Thanks for the info.

Do you know the name of the Joe's story? I assume that given that it is a superhero anthology it will be a story we have not read elsewhere before.

There seams to be have been some changes made to the book. If you look in the online catalog from FreePress you will find this:

But then when I looked in the actual book there is now story by Joe. I'm looking into this and I'm very sorry if I got the hopes up on you and there isn't a story by Joe here...

Lilja, do you happen to have a link to freepress? I tried google and the only thing I can find is Detroit free press! LOL

I also noticed that you can pre-order this from Amazon. Would like to get to the bottom of this if Joe is going to be in it or not.

Thanks

I checked Owen's website and if you look under "News" there is a link to pre-order...no mention of Joe having a story in it. Maybe Shane or Joe can jump in here to clear this up? You can also pre-order it from B&N, but you may end up paying more for it...unless you get a discount! :twisted:

FreePress is an inprint to Simon & Schuster and I just heard from them:

The contributors changed from the time the catalog went out--Joe Hill is no longer a contributor.


So, it seams I jumped the gun. Joe does not have a story in this one :(

Of course I'd love to see it contain a story by Joe, but f Owen edited it, it would still be worth checking out - Joe or no Joe.

Bummer for sure.....I'll still get this though. It sounds good.

Maybe Joe will just have to publish another book of his own short stories....... :)
