On April 9, 2015, Robert McCammon visited the campus of Northeast Alabama Community College. The English classes there had read Boy’s Life and were assigned to create various Boy’s Life-inspired projects: dioramas, games, and other displays. Click on the link below to view a gallery of photos of the projects. Thanks to NACC’s Joan Reeves and Joan Tucker for the photos!

From Subterranean Press:

We’ve put our upcoming Robert McCammon trade paperbacks (Blue World, They Thirst, The Hunter from the Woods) through their final round of proofing, and are just waiting for their pub dates to roll around. As a reminder, we’ll have a limited number of signed sets of the books, which you can order at the Blue World page.

In other news, Rick’s epic new sf/horror novel, The Border, has been sent to the printer, which means the trade hardcover should ship by the end of May, to be followed 6-8 weeks later by the limited and lettered editions.


The Border gets a starred review from Publishers Weekly

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.

Better Weird: A Tribute to David B. Silva

 ebooks, Short stories  Comments Off on Better Weird: A Tribute to David B. Silva

Better WeirdFrom editor Paul F. Olson:

Coming in April as an e-book from Cemetery Dance Publications!

Better weird than plastic …

For a generation of horror fans, those four words signaled a momentous occasion: the arrival of a new issue of David B. Silva’s seminal publication, THE HORROR SHOW. For nine years in the 1980s, Dave and his magazine published some of the biggest names in the genre and introduced the world to countless others, nurturing dozens of careers along the road from first publication to major success. A man of limitless talent, Dave also earned a reputation as one of the field’s finest writers, producing a handful of brilliant novels and a vast collection of award-winning stories.

Following Dave’s untimely death in 2013, authors from around the world of horror came forward to honor his memory. Those who grew up reading his immortal magazine, those who learned from his kind and careful tutelage, those who admired the editor, the writer, the man – they are all here, gathered in the pages of this special anthology. Kealan Patrick Burke, Brian Hodge, Joe R. Lansdale, Robert R. McCammon, Bentley Little, Elizabeth Massie, Brian Keene, J.F. Gonzalez, Steve Rasnic Tem, Billie Sue Mosiman, Kathryn Ptacek, Thomas F. Monteleone, Gary Raisor, Yvonne Navarro, Robert Swartwood, G. Wayne Miller, and Paul F. Olson. With brand new tales of terror, lovingly-chosen classics, and heartfelt tributes, these writers have come to raise a chill, bring a tear, and remind you of the truth in Dave’s immortal words: It’s always BETTER WEIRD …

The Robert McCammon story is a reprint of “Yellachile’s Cage,” which is also found in Blue World.

A print edition of the anthology is planned for later this year.

Diabolique magazine has published a great interview with editor Paul F. Olson.
