Amazon has again lowered the prices of the Kindle editions of Stinger and MINE to $1.99. This is an Amazon-only promotion, and I don’t know how long it will last.
Open Road Integrated Media has released nine of Robert McCammon’s novels in ebook format! The books are available now from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Sony, Kobo, and other sites. On their Robert McCammon page, you can find links to purchase the ebooks, as well as a video profile of Robert McCammon, which can also be seen below.
It was originally announced that all of Robert McCammon’s pre-Speaks the Nightbird backlist would be published in ebook format today, but there was a rights mixup, and the first four books are not yet available. Those books (Baal, Bethany’s Sin, The Night Boat, and They Thirst) will be released as ebooks in the coming months by Subterranean Press, which will also be publishing signed limited editions of each novel. The first limited edition and ebook, Baal, will be published in November 2011 and can be ordered from Subterranean Press.
In addition to the ebook releases, Simon & Schuster has re-released their abridged audiobooks of Boy’s Life and Gone South. Both are available from Audible, Ambling Books, and other sites. Again, please note that these releases are the 3-hour abridged audiobooks originally released in 1991 and 1992.
On October 18, 2011, much of Robert McCammon’s pre-Speaks the Nightbird backlist, from Mystery Walk through Gone South, will be available in various eBook formats. The books will be published by Open Road Integrated Media, and more information, including a video profile of Robert McCammon, will be available on October 18.
The books are already pre-orderable from Amazon (Kindle) and iTunes (iBooks). Click here for order links for all of the McCammon ebooks! As soon as Barnes & Noble adds the titles, the page will be updated to include the NOOK links, as well.
More fantastic reviews of The Five have popped up on various sites. Here are some of the more notable reviews:
And here are several other recent mentions of Robert McCammon’s work:
Finally, reader Kevin Richardson posted this photo of his The Five t-shirt to the Robert McCammon Facebook page, along with the caption:

“Perhaps the most beautiful and complete novel by Robert McCammon never published in Italy, Mary Terror has an intrinsic message of rare beauty and magnificence….”
“Again, Robert McCammon showcases his versatility and amazing talent in crossing genres directly into a suspense novel. This page turner is set in early Eighteenth century Manhattan. There is a serial killer on the loose and Matthew must find him. Then, the book morphs into a journey of… rich characters, hairpin turns, unexpected surprises, and a bunch of ‘wow, who would have thought that.'”
“Bottom line, McCammon is an incredible storyteller. There’s a reason this book is still in print twenty-five years later. I loved it!”
