Webb Wilder’s Mississippi Mōderne

 Robert McCammon  Comments Off on Webb Wilder’s Mississippi Mōderne
Oct 012015

On Friday, September 25, Rick McCammon and I attended the CD release party for Webb Wilder, one of my favorite musicians. I introduced Rick to Webb’s music a decade ago, when we attended a DVD taping of a Webb show in Birmingham.

Webb plays both kinds of music: Rock and Roll. His new album, Mississippi Mōderne, contains new songs and covers that pay tribute to the blues and rock sounds of Mississippi, Webb’s home state. Here we are after the show.

If you’re interested in checking out Webb’s new album, you can find samples on Amazon, and you can listen to the whole album on Spotify. Rick calls Mississippi Mōderne Webb’s best album yet.

Robert McCammon’s BLUE WORLD in Stock and Shipping

Blue World by Robert McCammonThis week we’ll be concentrating on sending out the signed limited edition of Robert McCammon’s Blue World, one of the most loved collections in horror.

In addition to the classic contents, our edition contains three newer stories being collected for the first time: “White”, “Strange Candy”, and the Bradburyesque “Children of the Bedtime Machine”.

Pick up a copy while supplies last!

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.

Limited: 1000 signed numbered hardcover copies, with exclusive full-color illustrations: $80
Lettered: 52 signed leatherbound copies, housed in a custom traycase: $275


Songs by Rick Neidlinger inspired by The Border

 Fan Audio, The Border  Comments Off on Songs by Rick Neidlinger inspired by The Border
Jul 022015

Rick Neidlinger has composed and recorded two songs that were inspired by The Border. The songs, “Ethan” and “Gorgons Have Landed,” have been added to the Fan Audio page, where you can find other music inspired by Robert McCammon’s work.

I’ve also added two earlier songs by Rick: “Lizardman,” inspired by the McCammon short story of the same name, and “Weaving Of A Tale,” which is about story-writing in general.

You can listen to more of Rick’s music on his page on
