This is a terrifying new short story from authors Stephen King and Joe Hill, brought to you as an audiobook original by sister publishers Orion and Hodder & Stoughton. As USA Today said of Stephen King's Mile 81: "Park and scream. Could there be any better place to set a horror story than an abandoned rest stop?"
In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they've lost one another. The boy's cries are growing more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale, as only Stephen King and Joe Hill can deliver.
Read by Stephen Lang. Stephen Lang is known for his roles in the films Avatar, Tombstone, Public Enemies, Gods and Generals, and Last Exit to Brooklyn. His work on Broadway includes A Few Good Men, Death of a Salesman, The Speed of Darkness, and Hamlet. On television, he has appeared on Terra Nova, Crime Story, and The Bronx is Burning.

I really enjoy reading but don't have the time so audible is a perfect solution, listen while doing boring tasks.
Typical short story by SK with another horror writer JH. I enjoyed this story but thought it was cheeky to release this alone therefore giving very little for your money considering most short stories come in at least 4s and you would never buy a short story alone but I had to have it.
I might be one of only a few people who hasn't read any Stephen King novels or Joe Hill novels for that matter. Naturally I've seen plenty of film adaptions of his books. This is my first and was a nice intro. The story is a little odd but then I expected that. Creepy in all the right places.
"Exactly what I expected from 2 masters of horror"
I don't want to give anything away so I will just say listen to this one if you are a horror fan. Excellent story that really draws you in especially for such a short one
