Cemetery Dance has posted a production update for their limited edition of Usher’s Passing:

Usher’s Passing by Robert McCammon:

Robert McCammon has signed the signature sheets, the interior artwork is now completed, and this title just needs two more proofreads to be ready. (The file we started with had some problems due to the age of the book, so we’re being extra careful with our proofreading!)

The most recent newsletter from Borderlands Press included this paragraph:

If you’re not familiar with the Borderlands Press Little Books, they are a series of little books featuring a variety of content from the authors. Some are collections of new short stories, some collections of reprints, some collections of essays, etc. Each book is a different color. Titles include A Little Purple Book of Phantasies, by Gahan Wilson, and A Little Cobalt Book of Old Blue Stories…and Stuff, by Mort Castle.

There are no details yet on the Robert McCammon book, but I can tell you that he plans to write four new short stories for the book. I’ll provide more details when I can.

A subscription to the series is not necessary. The Robert McCammon book will be sold individually, and Cemetery Dance posted that they will have copies available for sale, too.

Actually, the old T-shirts never went away, I just haven’t promoted them much recently. I’ve finally created T-shirts that feature the cover art from Freedom of the Mask and Cardinal Black. Vincent Chong graciously allowed me to reproduce his cover art on the shirts.

The T-shirts can be ordered from Spreadshirt. The prices of the shirts are the base prices from Spreadshirt. In order to keep the prices as low as possible, we did not tack on any additional fees.

From Deadline:

Stephen Susco To Adapt Robert McCammon’s ‘Speaks The Nightbird’ For Potential FX Series

By Mike Fleming, Jr
June 3, 2019 5:33pm

EXCLUSIVEFX is developing the Robert McCammon horror novel Speaks The Nightbird for a potential series, and Stephen Susco has been set to adapt.

Wolper Organization’s Mark Wolper, Kevin Matusow for The Traveling Picture Show Company, Shay Prentice and Kevin Nicklaus will produce.

The bestseller tells the dark and chilling tale about a witch-hunt in the seventeenth century Carolina colonies. The series centers around the main character Matthew Corbett.

Susco most recently wrote and directed Unfriended: Dark Web for Blumhouse and Universal, a film that premiered at SXSW last year. Susco scripted The Grudge and The Grudge 2, a highly profitable horror series for Sony.

Susco is repped by Verve.

That’s all the information I have about the project at this time. And it’s not a horror novel.
