Joe Hill has announced details of his new novel NOS4A2, through the Cemetery Dance website. Hill said the book is about “a very bad man with a very bad car. Bad things happen to the children who get in the car with him. These children wind up being driven to a place called Christmas Land, and if Disney Land is the happiest place on Earth, Christmas Land is the unhappiest place NOT on Earth. It’s partially about people who have unnatural powers that they derive from vehicles.” The book will be available in 2013.
