Esquire will print a short story by Stephen King and Joe hill in the June/July issue.
The story is part of a push for more "Fiction for Men" in magazines.
David Granger, the editor in chief of Esquire, said he has lamented the loss of space that magazines devoted to publishing fiction. The New Yorker is perhaps the most visible home for fiction in the magazine world, but many other magazines have cut back.
“It’s a struggle, because especially during the recession, we lost so many pages,” he said. “Fiction begins to feel a little bit of a luxury.”
