Tuesday, December 5, is Robert McCammon Day at the Alabama Booksmith. At 5:00 PM CST, he will read from his amazing upcoming novel, The Listener. The book will be published in February, 2018, but signed first editions ($25) will officially go on sale at this event.
Not only will a pre-order guarantee a signed first edition at regular publisher’s price, and come with a certificate signed by Mr. McCammon authenticating that this copy was purchased prior to publication, but all purchases come with a chance in the drawing for one of the most beautiful treasures we’ve ever seen. Here are the details of the prize:
On March 13, 2017, the thirtieth anniversary limited edition of Swan Song was published. Only 552 copies were offered for sale and they sold out the first day. There were 500 numbered (originally $150) and 52 lettered (originally $400). All came in a gorgeous slipcase and were illustrated throughout. The lettered editions feature a magnificent gatefold by David Ho.
The Alabama Booksmith acquired the author’s personal collection (lettered P.C.) and that will be the lucky winner’s prize. This very, very precious and valuable gem (appraised at $500). This copy comes with a parchment certificate authenticating provenance and signed by Robert McCammon. The drawing will be at the launch of The Listener in February, 2018.
Mr. McCammon will be happy to personalize any title currently on our shelves and we’ll ship December 6.
The Alabama Booksmith is located at 2626 19th Pl S, Birmingham, Alabama 35209.
