Italian publisher Gruppo Editoriale Fanucci has revealed the cover to their upcoming translation of Robert McCammon’s Swan Song. You can see it below. The translation is by Francesco Vitellini, who recently posted on Facebook, “Presto in libreria una delle cose migliori che abbia mai tradotto!” (“Soon at the library one of the best things I’ve ever translated!”)
I do not yet know what format the book will have or exactly when it will be released. The ISBN is 9788834741832,
Robert McCammon has finished writing The King of Shadows! He literally just finished it on Tuesday, so it’s way too soon to know anything about any kind of publication information. But the book is finished, and it’s a big one! The number of manuscript pages is almost identical to what Freedom of the Mask had!
The King of Shadows is book #8 in the Matthew Corbett series. Expect more news in the coming months….
Artist Александр Павлов (Alexander) from Russia sent in new illustrations he did based on The Night Boat and They Thirst. You can find larger versions, as well as more of his art, on Alexander’s page in the Fan Art Gallery. The art for The Night Boat is at the top of the page; the art for They Thirst is at the bottom.

Polish publisher Vesper has acquired the Polish translation rights to four more Robert McCammon novels: Boy’s Life, Swan Song, Usher’s Passing, and The Listener.
In 2019, Vesper acquired the rights to Speaks the Nightbird, and just a couple of days ago, they posted the planned cover art for their edition, which you can see below. The art is by Maciej Kamuda Art. No publication date has been revealed yet, but it will be sometime in late 2021.
Luzifer Verlag has announced the publication date for their German translation of The River of Souls. They’ll release Matthew Corbett und der Fluss der Seelen on September 30, 2021, in hardcover and ebook formats. The cover art can be seen below.
Back in 2018, we reported that Russian publisher Azbooka had acquired the translation rights to five Robert McCammon novels.
They have now released their first title, a translation of Boy’s Life by translators Oleg Kolesnikov and Boris Kadnikov. You can see the wonderful cover art below. Unfortunately, I have not yet discovered the artist’s name.

I am sad to report that Rowena Morrill has died. She painted the covers for six of Robert McCammon’s paperbacks for Pocket Books in the 1980s. Last evening, Rowena suffered a series of cardiac arrests and passed away. Rowena Morrill 1944–2021.
Locus has posted their obituary for Rowena.
