On Wednesday, June 1, 2016, Robert McCammon signed copies of his new book, Freedom of the Mask, at the Alabama Booksmith in Birmingham, AL. Photos from the event can be viewed here courtesy of Jake and Mary from the Alabama Booksmith!
Robert McCammon’s Freedom of the Mask, book six in the Matthew Corbett series, is available now! While Subterranean Press began shipping books a couple of weeks ago, the ebook and audiobook editions are now available. If you purchase the Kindle ebook, you can add the Audible audiobook for only $1.99 more!
I hope to have an audiobook giveaway later this week. Stay tuned!

The audiobook and ebook editions will be released on Tuesday, May 31.
