From Subterranean Press:
In the years since it was initially released, we’ve seen Robert McCammon’s The Hunter from the Woods go up in price astronomically on the secondary market. Even the trade paperback will set you back a cool $90 or more.
That’s just one of the reasons we’re happy to announce that we’re doing a small reprint of the trade hardcover edition.
About the Book:
Subterranean Press is proud to present a series of adventures, including several novelettes and novellas, set both pre- and post- Robert McCammon’s classic novel, The Wolf’s Hour.
In the shadowed corners behind enemy lines, Michael Gallatin is England’s most potent weapon against Nazi Germany. Blessed and cursed by the ability to transform his flesh, Michael lives between worlds as both man and wolf. A gifted spy and a cunning warrior, he is unmatched in the field. No ordinary agent of the British Crown, he’s the one they send when there’s no one else.
Returning to a vision first imagined in the New York Times Bestseller The Wolf’s Hour, horror master Robert McCammon traces the life of a single man in the midst of the Second World War. From a traveling circus in the Russian steppes, to the skies of North Africa, to the gritty underworld of Berlin itself, The Hunter from the Woods pits Michael against impossible odds, where failure means death and so, too, might victory.
Told through a series of interconnected novellas and short stories, McCammon shows us how Michael lived and loved during a time in history when there was little room for either. A visceral and primal journey, The Hunter from the Woods revels in the intimate cruelty of war, but never fails to illuminate the resilience of the human spirit. The Wolf’s Hour may be Michael Gallatin’s greatest adventure, but these are the stories that comprise his life. They present an alternate history every Robert McCammon fan, and every fan of thrilling fiction, will want to read.
Cemetery Dance has announced a new book, Seasons of Terror, that features four stories adapted to graphic format by Richard Chizmar. The stories are by Ray Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, Stephen King, and Robert McCammon. Each story is illustrated by a different artist:
Spring – “The Man in the Woods” by Shirley Jackson with artwork by Ray Fawkes
Summer – “The Screaming Woman” by Ray Bradbury with artwork by Dennis Calero
Fall – “The Raft” by Stephen King with artwork by Francois Vaillancourt
Winter – “The Man from London” by Robert McCammon with artwork by Steve Wands
Brian from CD clarified what this will be in a post on DarkTower.org:
The stories are adapted into a graphic novel-esque format. It won’t be the exact text of the original stories reprinted word for word like we did in SOD, although some elements like dialogue might show up the same as you remember from the original stories. So, less text and more art.
Also, for those who aren’t interested in the hardcover but like the overall idea, I believe Simon & Schuster will be publishing a trade paperback in the second half of 2020.
The book will be released by CD in three different editions sometime in 2020. For details and to place pre-orders, visit the Seasons of Terror page at Cemetery Dance.
