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.

Final issue of Lights Out! is now available for download!

 Interviews, Robert McCammon  Comments Off on Final issue of Lights Out! is now available for download!

From 1989 to 1991, I published six issues of Lights Out! – The Robert R. McCammon Newsletter. Five of those issues have been available to download as PDF files from this site for years, but the last issue was a subscriber-only issue—copies weren’t sold by book dealers at the time, and it’s been difficult to find. Now, 29 years later, we’ve decided to make a PDF of that issue available as our holiday gift to you!

Issue six was published in October 1991 and is most notable because it contains a lengthy excerpt from The Address, a novel about a house in Hollywood that Robert McCammon abandoned in 1990. In a preface to the excerpt, he describes the book, what it would have been, and why he gave up on it. The issue also includes a lengthy interview with Robert McCammon that I conducted. That interview has long been found in the Interviews section of this site, but you might enjoy seeing it in context.

So download the file, kick back, and enjoy reading a Robert McCammon piece that most readers have never seen before!

Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!
