Joyland by Stephen King
Publication Date: June 4th, 2013
Hard Case Crime
Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.
Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.
I discovered Hard Case Crime books in 2013. I bought a series of them when they were at my local bookshop. Nowadays, I'll be hard pressed to find them. Unsurprisingly, I haven't read any of them aside from one -- Chokehold by Christa Faust. According to Goodreads, I own 10 of them but I can only find 6 in my shelves. Lol. Anyway, if you want to know more about Pulp Fiction, I feel like I should refer you to the expert in these type of reads: Greg of Book Haven. She regularly features stunning covers of this lost art. One of these days, I'm going to tackle my pile of pulp fiction novels.
What about you? Have you read any Hard Case Crime books lately?
