    Default In the Tall Grass: Stephen King & Joe Hill in Esquire June/July & August 2012

    From Talk Stephen King :



    Jule Bosman has a short article at Media Decoder about some new attempts Esquire is making to not only include more fiction -- but to market it to men.

    While a lot of the focus in fiction is in the e-book world, the article also reveals that King and Hill will be published in the June / July issue of Esquire.

    Bosman writes:

    It coincides with the publication of three works in the June/July issue of Esquire — by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill; the thriller writer Lee Child; and Colum McCann. The works will be available only in the print and iPad editions of the magazine.

    David Granger, the editor in chief of Esquire, said he has lamented the loss of space that magazines devoted to publishing fiction. The New Yorker is perhaps the most visible home for fiction in the magazine world, but many other magazines have cut back.

    The full article is HERE.
    http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.co...er=rss&emc=rss

    So : Throttle or something new? So far, nothing on the Esquire website, as the current issue is the May one...

    I don't know, but I miss the days of being able to convince friends to break street date for stuff like this.

    The first volume of the series includes new short stories by Aaron Gwyn, Luis Alberto Urrea and Jess Walter, and the stories will be sold only in e-book format in collaboration with Open Road Integrated Media, a digital publisher, beginning June 12. (Another volume will follow every few months.)
    It coincides with the publication of three works in the June/July issue of Esquire ó by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill; the thriller writer Lee Child; and Colum McCann. The works will be available only in the print and iPad editions of the magazine.
    This sounds like 6/12 is the date for both of these.

    Strange that it's less than a month out and nothing on the official site.

    I wonder if this and Throttle and some other unpublished material could pave way for a King/Hill collection? It would make sense; otherwise both authors would have to collected these stories in their own collections, which sounds like a dubious enterprise. I would love a dedicated King/Hill collection of collaborations. I'm sure these two are not the only things they've done.

    If they are, they certainly seem to like it so we can probably expect more. I too would love a king/hill collection.

    I'd expect it soon -- the May issue was out in mid-April.

    From SKMB: Esquire has announced it is to publish a new story collaboration by Joe Hill and Stephen as part of its launch of an e-book series called "Fiction for Men." "In the Tall Grass" will be published in two parts, the first to appear in the June/July issue and the conclusion in the August issue. The works will be available only in the print and iPad editions of the magazine.
