Guillermo del Toro teams up with Amazon’s Original Stories imprint to bring us a new book. 

That’s right — the Oscar-winning director will publish a short stories’ book. The imprint is set to release the book as a Kindle ebook and an Audible audiobook. 

The news was confirmed Tuesday.

“Throughout the years, I’ve been inspired by reading short stories, from ghost stories to fairy tales. Now I have the privilege to create and share my own,” said the director of Pan’s Labyrinth and The Shape of Water in a statement.

Also publishing original content via the imprint is Mindy Kaling who is set to release a collection of essays in summer 2020. Del Toro’s short story collection is slated for 2021.
