subpress-humbleSubterranean Press has partnered with Humble Bundle to sell bundles of ebooks and benefit charities at the same time. Robert McCammon’s The Hunter from the Woods and I Travel by Night are two of the books included in the bundle. The Humble Subterranean Press Book Bundle ends March 4, 2015, at 11 am PT.

From the Humble Bundle website:

A book bundle twenty years in the making… Subterranean Press is celebrating two decades of excellence, and we’re humbly inviting you to join the fun! Name your price for The Jack Vance Treasury, Inside Job, Muse of Fire, Jacaranda: A Novella of the Clockwork Century, The Ape’s Wife and Other Stories, The Top of the Volcano: The Award-Winning Stories of Harlan Ellison®, and Brayan’s Gold. If you pay more than the average price, you’ll also get The Mallet of Loving Correction, Nobody’s Home: An Anubis Gates Story, The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox, The End of the Sentence, The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate, Tortured Souls: The Legend of Primordium, and Amityville Horrible. If you pay $15 or more, you’ll receive all of the above plus Academic Exercises, The Hunter from the Woods, and Black Hat Jack. Party on with Subterranean Press (but not too hard — that’s next year)!

Pay what you want. This collection of books would normally cost you up to $96 if purchased separately, but Humble Bundle puts the decision in your hands on what the bundle is worth. Think of it like a book sale auction (minus the bidding and the fast talking guy with the gavel).

Read them anywhere (even internationally!). These books are all available in PDF, ePUB, and MOBI formats, meaning you can read them anywhere at anytime. Even more exciting, the majority of these titles are now available for the very first time outside of the US. In other words, Diplomatic Immunity! Instructions and a list of recommended reading programs can be found here.

Support charity through the power of reading. You choose where your money goes — between the publisher and the charity Worldbuilders. If you like this book bundle and want to see more like it, let us know with a Humble Tip!

Huge Robert McCammon News—A New Limited Edition and Three Trade Paperbacks

Blue World by Robert McCammon

We’re pleased to announce three new Robert McCammon titles. First up is the Signed Limited Edition of his classic collection, Blue World, expanded to include three newer stories, as well as a full-color dust jacket and full-color interior illustrations by Vincent Chong.

About the Book:

In this expanded edition of Robert McCammon’s classic short story collection, you will encounter horrors and delights in equal measure, including:

  • A man who awakens one morning to find a skeleton in bed where his wife had been the night before.
  • A small-time thief who steals a makeup case, and learns a dead horror star’s secret.
  • A roadside diner, where a Vietnam veteran comes seeking shelter from the storm.
  • A young man in prison, who finds beauty and hope on the wings of a yellow bird.
  • Halloween in a very special residential area, where trick-or-treating is deadly serious.
  • A red house on a street of gray houses, and a breath of sweet fire.
  • The adventures of a has-been serial hero, who dons his old costume and goes in search of a serial killer.
  • A priest obsessed by a porno star, and his realization that both of them are being stalked by a third shadow.
  • An old woman who channels early, simpler times in a melancholy Bradburyesque future.

We will see worlds within worlds through the windows of these stories. We might even see the end of the world, and we might sit on a front porch for a while and sip a glass of gasoline on a hot December day.

From the Subterranean Press book page:

World Fantasy award-winning, bestselling author Robert McCammon makes a triumphant return to the epic horror and apocalyptic tone reminiscent of his books Swan Song and Stinger in this gripping new novel, The Border, a saga of an Earth devastated by a war between two marauding alien civilizations.

But it is not just the living ships of the monstrous Gorgons or the motion-blurred shock troops of the armored Cyphers that endanger the holdouts in the human bastion of Panther Ridge. The world itself has turned against the handful of survivors, as one by one they succumb to despair and suicide or, even worse, are transformed by otherworldly pollution into hideous Gray Men, cannibalistic mutants driven by insatiable hunger. Into these desperate circumstances comes an amnesiac teenaged boy who names himself Ethan—a boy who must overcome mistrust and suspicion to master unknowable powers that may prove to be the last hope for humanity’s salvation. Those same powers make Ethan a threat to the warring aliens, long used to fearing only each other, and thrust him and his comrades into ever more perilous circumstances.

A major new novel from the unparalleled imagination of Robert McCammon, this dark epic of survival will both thrill readers and make them fall in love with his work all over again.

The limited and lettered editions will feature:

  • An exclusive wraparound dust jacket
  • Custom slipcase or traycase (as appropriate)
  • An original afterword by Robert McCammon
  • Several full-page interior illustrations not in the trade hardcover
  • The trade edition dust jacket as a frontispiece

Limited: 500 signed numbered copies, with exclusive wraparound dust jacket and interior illustrations, housed in a custom slipcase
Lettered: 52 signed copies, bound in leather, housed in a custom traycase
Trade: Fully cloth bound hardcover edition

Note: The first 1000 trade copies ordered direct from SubPress will be signed by the author

Ebook versions (U.S.) will also be available, as well as an unabridged audiobook from Audible.

Subterranean Press has also revealed two of David Ho’s interior illustrations for the limited and lettered editions. Click on each image to view a larger version.
