Voluntary Committal by Joe Hill
Subterranean Press is proud to announce Joe Hill's first standalone project, a 20,000 word novella. We'll get out of the way and let the author tell you what it's about: "There are all these great fantasy stories about children discovering a secret world at the back of a wardrobe, or in the little door under the stairs, or through the looking-glass. All those stories are really about the same thing -- the pleasures of leaving the real world behind and escaping into a world of fantasy. That's actually a metaphor for reading itself. You pick up a book because you want to get away from the here-and-now for a while. But Voluntary Committal is sort of a darker look at the whole idea of adventurous children scrambling through the magic door into bye-bye land. I wanted to see what happens to that kind of story when you take the obligatory happy ending away. In Voluntary Committal, Alice goes down the rabbit hole and never comes back. The rabbit hole swallows her and spits out the bones."
