Back in May, the PBS show The Great American Read launched. The goal: to pick American’s favorite book out of a list of 100 of American’s favorite books, according to PBS surveys. Robert McCammon’s Swan Song is among those 100 books.

It’s not too late to vote for Swan Song and others!

The final episode of The Great American Read will air on Tuesday, October 23, 2018. Robert McCammon will be among the “notable attendees”! Here’s an excerpt from an article at WOUB Digital:

The clock is ticking to cast your final votes for America’s best-loved novel. THE GREAT AMERICAN READ will air its “Grand Finale” episode and reveal America’s choice for its number one book on Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 8:00-9:00 p.m.  on PBS stations nationwide.

The “Grand Finale” episode will be filmed in front of a live audience in New York City. Notable attendees will include host Meredith Vieira; actor Wil Wheaton; authors Diana Gabaldon, Robert McCammon and Amy Tan; journalist Lesley Stahl; literary expert Baratunde Thurston and more.

At this time, I don’t know exactly what his role in the finale will be, but make your plans to tune in on October 23, 2018, for “The Grand Finale”!

Good afternoon!

YouTube user jeffingoff posted “unboxing” videos for the SST limited edition of The Listener and the Cemetery Dance lettered edition of The Listener. You can get a good look at both editions in his videos.

He had also previously posted an “unboxing” video of Subterranean Press’s limited edition of Swan Song.

Subterranean Press posted this announcement this morning:

We (and the author) have noticed that one of the earlier Matthew Corbett novels has been bringing in high prices on the secondary market, making it inaccessible to general readers, so have decided to reprint the trade hardcover of Mister Slaughter. This reprint will not be huge, so if you’d like a copy, please get your order in.

Trade: Fully cloth bound hardcover edition: $40

The book will also be available through Cemetery Dance:

Brian Freeman of Cemetery Dance sent me the following a few minutes ago:

Today we received the “final approval case” for THE LISTENER Limited Edition, which means both the Limited Edition and the Lettered Edition of this title will be done and shipping in September.

Their case maker dropped the ball on this project and others.


New international rights acquired

A couple of international rights deals were recently made:

Boy’s Life has been previously published a few times in France.

This will be the first Bulgarian edition of Swan Song. Iztok-Zapad previously published Boy’s Life in 2013.

I would expect that it’ll be at least a year before either edition is published.
