From Subterranean Press:

Kirkus Picks THEY THIRST as One of Twelve Excellent Horror Reads for October

They_Thirst_by_Robert_McCammon_Large.jpg

The advance copies of Robert McCammon’s vampire epic, They Thirst, which clocks in at over 600 pages, have landed here at SubPress. I must say they look mighty fine! If wide-screen storytelling, with a lot of characters and action are your thing, please get your order in. Not including several orders which are due any day, we have orders for more than 1200 copies, and the print run is limited to 1000. We’ll fill all direct orders, of course, but some of our larger accounts aren’t going to receive as many copies as they might like.

Kirkus Reviews just included They Thirst in its 12 Excellent Horror Reads for October:

What’s Halloween without vampires? In this deluxe version of the McCammon’s classic vampire story, readers unfamiliar with this 30-year-old story can discover that it still remains chilling. In the small Hungarian hamlet of Krajeck, a boy named Andre awaits the return of his father from a dangerous mission. However, the being that returns is no longer his father, and Andre and his mother barely escape with their lives. Decades later, Andre—now living in Los Angeles and going by the name Andy—is working as a homicide detective who deals with death on a day-to-day basis. But even that can’t prepare him when the horrors he encountered as a young boy return, arriving in LA to terrorize him yet again.

Limited: 1000 signed numbered hardcover copies: $80

The Wolf’s Hour by Robert R. McCammon. $1.99

From the Jacket Copy:

On the eve of D-Day, a British secret agent with unique powers goes behind Nazi lines Michael Gallatin is a British spy with a peculiar talent: the ability to transform himself into a wolf. Although his work in North Africa helped the Allies win the continent in the early days of World War II, he quit the service when a German spy shot his lover in her bed. Now, three years later, the army asks him to end his retirement and parachute into occupied Paris. A mysterious German plan called the Iron Fist threatens the D-Day invasion, and the Nazi in charge is the spy who betrayed Michael’s lover. The werewolf goes to France for king and country, hoping for a chance at bloody vengeance.
