  • The cover of the limited edition of Speaks the Nightbird has been added to the Cover Gallery.

  • Ryan MacMichael sent in the following quote from the Nov/Dec 2002 issue of Rue Morgue magazine. On page 46 at the end of a review of the nazi-zombie DVD Shock Waves was this:

    "Despite its faults, fans of independent seventies horror could spend their hard-earned on much worse films than Shock Waves. It's worth noting, however, that the all-time best underwater Nazi zombie tale wasn't actually a film, but a novel: Robert R. McCammon's pulpy gem The Night Boat."

    Thanks, Ryan!

  • Stephen Ellison sent in a scan of the uncorrected proof for the U.S. paperback edition of Blue World, which I've added to the Blue World Cover Gallery. And thanks to Dave Gullberg, the MINE Cover Gallery now includes the in-store display for McCammon's 1990 Nashville signing.

  • The limited edition of Speaks the Nightbird has been shipped to book dealers; Shocklines.com and Camelot Books have both reported their receipt of the books.

  • Speaks the Nightbird has been selected as one of the 76 best books in America by the independent booksellers affiliated with BookSense for January and February. You can see the entire list by clicking here. The selection process uses blurbs from independent booksellers who actually read the books instead of other obligated authors and publishers. Speaks the Nightbird was nominated by the Alabama Booksmith and was among 2,000 nominations.
