From Subterranean Press:

As Robert McCammon’s The Border approaches its May publication, the reviews are just starting to roll in. Here’s the big one, accompanied by a star, from Publishers Weekly:

Genre-busting author McCammon (The River of Souls) pulls out all the stops for this exhilarating alien-invasion epic, which harkens back to his 1987 blockbuster, Swan Song. The spectacular opening introduces an amnesiac teenage boy who abruptly becomes aware of himself in a full-tilt sprint through a post-apocalyptic battlefield, with wounds that should have killed him, and knowledge and abilities he doesn’t understand…This story blends the gripping horror and action of McCammon’s earliest novels with the empathy of his more recent work, making it one of his finest.

The Limited and Lettered editions are long gone, but we still have a small number of signed trade hardcovers available at the bargain price of only $26.95.

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.
