The Oscar winner is set to publish a short stories’ book as an eBook and audiobook with Amazon.

It was announced Tuesday that the director of Pan’s Labyrinth and The Shape of Water will be writing a book of original short stories published via Amazon’s Original Stories imprint.

“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 del Toro in a statement.

Del Toro joins Mindy Kaling who will pulse a collection of essays via the same imprint in summer 2020. Del Toro’s short story collection is slated for a 2021 release.
