Power 96 web goddess Tamara Gruhot and I sit down and chat with him about his latest novel, which centers on a worldwide pandemic that causes its victims to spontaneously combust in a fiery inferno, consuming everyone and everything around them, and the hero that emerges with the ability to control the disease. Known as Dragonscale, this spore-like infection tattoos its victims with black and gold markings on their bodies. Can The Fireman and his band of heroes defeat this horrible disease before it reduces civilization to ashes? You'll have to read the book to find out, I know we will.

Hill is also working with AMC to develop a television series similar to The Walking Dead based on his bestseller NOS4A2 as well as a deal to turn The Fireman into a big screen blockbuster. He'll also be in the Twin Cities for a book signing of his new book hosted by Magers & Quinn Booksellers at the Uptown Church in Minneapolis this Saturday, May 21 at 7PM.
