When 50 paged short story is sold alone, I expect it to be a powerful thing. Otherwise, why would you sell it alone, instead of combining it with a few other stories, thus ending up with an interesting collection? Throttle seems to be inspired by Sons of Anarchy TV series, of which King is a fan. In case someone doesn’t know, Joe Hill is Stephen King’s son. His characters dwell in the same universe as King’s characters. Throttle is a well written short story about bikers, with interesting characteristics and good action scenes. It’s also extremely violent, so be warned. However, it wasn’t as good as King’s other stories. My take is that it was mostly written by Joe Hill. No other author loves the word “embankment” as much as him.
