I have read Wolf's Hour once a year since it was published and it is my favorite book of all time. Thank you for such wonderful fiction. Just finished Swan Song & Usher's Passing, AGAIN........

I'm not sure if Mr. McCammon will read this, but if he does: Sir, I appreciate the work you do, and I believe books like "Boy's Life" and "Swan Song" are among the finest on our shelves today. My friend and I are working hard on our first novel, and we would love you to read it someday soon. Perhaps you will. Your unknown friend in Arkansas, Brad M.

I've had the privilege of exchanging emails with Mr. Goatley recently, and I greatly appreciate his time and willingness to pass along a brief message on my behalf to Mr. McCammon (I hope he gets it, but just in case "HI MR MCCAMMON!" j/k I just finished Boy's Life the other day, and just loved it and posted a review on a friend's site. I know you're still around, Mr. McCammon, but your work will be missed -- your pen was silenced too soon.

I have only recently read one book of yours. The book I read was called MINE. I enjoyed the book so much that I went to my local library, to look for your books. Where I live it is a small town so they only have two of your books. So I checked out the one I havent read. I hope I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed MINE. Thank you for keeping me interested.

I was overjoyed when, out of nowhere, "Speaks The Nightbird" was published.
I practically devoured the book and Mr. McCammon (or Rick, if I may)has lost none of his writing power. If anything, it's gotten stronger.
Every year of those ten years since the marvelous "Gone South" came out I haunted my local bookstores waiting in vain for him to publish something new. It was worth the wait. I only hope that this is not the last we hear from him.

Mr. McCammon, I'd just like to thank you for the hours of sheer enjoyment that you have given to me. In your words I have found other worlds far away from the pressures of my own... and for that I am grateful. :)
It is also very refreshing (and pleases me immensely) to see that a man of your caliber is humble enough to care what his fans think and in so has provided a means of communication. Thank you for that as well. :)
...and I know that in the grand scheme of life it isn't really worth 2 hoots one way or the other, but I thought I'd mention that recently in an online forum... in a thread concerning 5 must read book recommendations, I placed your Swan's Song as #2. Rachel Maddux's - The Green Kingdom only superceded yours due to the age of her novel and it's hard to find availability.

Boy's Life will be recognized 50 years from now as a classic. It's one of the best books I have ever read.

As my first novel will be in (local) print (and not self-financed) in April, I just want to thank you for still being alive! I will not speak about myself,
although my writing career is doing 'swimmingly' well, (agents, lions, tigers, bears oh, my!) 'Nightbird' was brilliant. And heck brother, I just want to wish you the very best. Thanks for being a staple in my youth, and thank you for keepin' on.
My best (and please don't wait another 11 years to write again!) to your endeavors, I invest my treasure,

Mr. M, I don't have to say you are one of the best writers in this generation. You stand equal to King and Koontz. I read your books as soon as I find them in print and was very depressed when you had not published anything in quite a while. Finally, Speaks the Nightbird came out and I was relieved to know you were still alive and writing. Please, please, please keep writing. It is my only release from this world to step into one of yours and be utterly scared, mystified, and unable to leave. You have a truly unique gift for telling a story and it is truly wonderful to go for the ride. Thanks for continuing and am eagerly awaiting your next book!!

I was just introduced to your books this past weekend when my daughter loaned me **her** loaned copy of "Boy's Life". By the time I was finished with it, I was in tears. What a beautifully written book...and you brought back so many wonderful memories of the early 60s and and their innocence. Thank you so much for making my weekend.

Just wanted to say that you are one of the best writers of the modern age. I have 5 of your books, unfortunately, not all of them, yet. But, from among them, from a personal objective, Swan Song is my favorite. I've read it so many times, the book is now in 4 or 5 pieces, I just like it that much! And I get a new perspective of each character, every time I read it. I know it's only a hope of mine, but, if it were at all possible, in the not-to-distant future, make a movie from it!! Oh, how grand it would be!
Keep up the great work, Sir!

My wife and I have read all of your books, and think you are the best storyteller we have ever read. Our favorite is Boys Life, and the story line in Usher's Passing, and the Wolf's Hour was very interesting. We read both volumes of Sings the Nightbird and both were difficult to put down. We are interested in knowing if there are any new books in the pipeline, or currently in progress. If so, when can we expect to see them on the market?

I believe I have read every one of your novels, and I think you are amongst the very best fiction writers today, and in the past too for that matter. I especially revere story telling ability, and I think Stephen King and Charles Dickens are representative masters of story telling, and I think you belong in that same lofty grouping. I truly enjoyed Speak the Night Bird, and I wish to send you a comment about its marketing, which I hope you will take positively. I felt that the marketing of Speak the Night Bird was, from my perspective, not very well done, although it was perhaps me who just missed the boat. But, it took some digging for me to find out if there were one or two volumes and what it was about, and I ended up getting Volume 2 first. The problems I had getting good information was, as I said, probably as much my fault as anything, but nevertheless it had happened. However, the reason I bring this up is that if I had problems getting and deciding what was real with respect to Nightbird, regardless of "fault", then others may have also. It would also seem that new Robert McCammon readers would not have had the persistence I did to get your Night Bird 2 volume book. The hype and leading edge or outfront information just did not seem to be there. I believe, rightly or wrongly, this may have hurt awareness and thereby sales, perhaps significantly. Again, this is in the for what it's worth category, and I repeat that you are one of my most favorite writers. I am looking forward to a Night Bird sequel, and any other fictional writing you may undertake. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to address this issue and also to be able to express my great admiration of your writing.

Well, Mr. McCammon, I am still very impressed. I am on the 5th (6th?) book of yours so far, after "discovering" your talent very recently. I have recently found that extra time to read, as I am laid up with a back problem. Finished so far: Swan Song, Boy's Life, Baal, Stinger, Blue World, Mine, and am currently reading Bethany's Sin. WHEW!! I am wrong: that is seven so far!! My lucky number...
Anyway, thanks to you and your talent, I am enjoying my 'Time Alone' (the name of my production company) and who knows? Maybe I can be the one to finally produce one of your books into film and make it hugely successful!!
Everyone knows where I can be found lately: sitting on the chaise in my master retreat, reading another GREAT McCammon book. Thanks Again!!

Thank you so much for writing such wonderful books, especially "Swan Song" which is my personal favorite. I just finished it for maybe the fifth time. Years ago, I lent it to someone and never got it back. Just recently, I found it again and read it like an old friend. I have enjoyed everything you've written. My second favorite is "Boy's Life". I'm looking forward to your next contribution to really great fiction.
