Joe Hill is one of our favorite authors out there, and his next novel, The Fireman, will be coming out in May of next year. Gollancz books has just released a trailer for the novel, which gives us some hints about what it’ll be about.

The story looks like it’ll depict a plague that causes people to spontaneously combust (and that’s what the Goodreads page for the book also seems to indicate), and Harper has been infected. It’s a tantalizing glimpse of a book that we’re really getting jazzed to read.

The Fireman is due to hit stores on May 17th, 2016.
