Subterranean Press posted this update on The River of Souls:

We have a number of updates on Robert McCammon’s newest historical thriller, The River of Souls, to share with you.

  • The book has just gone to the printer, which means we’re very much on track to meet our May 31 publication date.
  • Head over to the book’s product page to check out a long excerpt (in epub and mobi formats).

The first review has landed, from Publishers Weekly, and we’re delighted by it:

Macabre surprises abound in McCammon’s entertaining fifth Matthew Corbett historical (after 2012’s Providence Rider). In the summer of 1703, while on a visit to Charles Town in the Carolina colony, “problem-solver” Matthew and Magnus Muldoon, his “big as a mountain” new friend, join a manhunt for three escaped slaves, one of whom has been accused of murdering a plantation owner’s daughter (though Matthew has uncovered evidence that implicates one of the hunters). McCammon resorts to a few credibility-stretching gambits in the closing chapters, but, as usual, he nicely evokes America’s colonial past and deftly straddles the boundary between the explicable and the supernatural.

Important Collector’s Note: There is no longer a limit on who may order the Signed, Limited Edition. This version contains the long bonus story, “The Scorpion’s Eye”, which cannot be reprinted anywhere else for at least two years.

Limited: 474 signed numbered copies, bound in leather, with the bonus story, artwork not in the trade hardcover, and housed in a custom slipcase: $125

Trade: Fully cloth-bound hardcover edition: $24.95

Publishers Weekly has posted their review of Robert McCammon’s The River of Souls, the fifth novel in the Matthew Corbett series (mild spoilers):

The River of Souls

Robert R. McCammon. Subterranean (www.subterraneanpress.com), $24.95 (264p) ISBN 978-1-59606-630-4

Macabre surprises abound in McCammon’s entertaining fifth Matthew Corbett historical (after 2012’s Providence Rider). In the summer of 1703, while on a visit to Charles Town in the Carolina colony, “problem-solver” Matthew and Magnus Muldoon, his “big as a mountain” new friend, join a manhunt for three escaped slaves, one of whom has been accused of murdering a plantation owner’s daughter (though Matthew has uncovered evidence that implicates one of the hunters). Their travel up the River of Solstice—which the locals refer to as “the river of souls”—proves to be a journey into the genuine heart of darkness, replete with ravenous alligators, a tribe of fiercely savage Native Americans, and a seemingly demonic monster known as the Soul Cryer. McCammon resorts to a few credibility-stretching gambits in the closing chapters, but, as usual, he nicely evokes America’s colonial past and deftly straddles the boundary between the explicable and the supernatural. Agent: Cameron McClure, DMLA. (May)
