Mister Slaughter (5th printing) at Subterranean Press

Mister Slaughter is the third book in the acclaimed Matthew Corbett series by Robert McCammon. From the Subterranean Press website:

The world of Colonial America comes vibrantly to life in this masterful new historical thriller by Robert McCammon. The latest entry in the popular Matthew Corbett series, which began with Speaks the Nightbird and continued in The Queen of BedlamMister Slaughter opens in the emerging metropolis of New York City in 1702, and proceeds to take both Matthew and the reader on an unforgettable journey of horror, violence, and personal discovery.

The journey begins when Matthew, now an apprentice “problem solver” for the London-based Herrald Agency, accepts an unusual and hazardous commission. Together with his colleague, Hudson Greathouse, he agrees to escort the notorious mass murderer Tyranthus Slaughter from an asylum outside Philadelphia to the docks of New York. Along the way, Slaughter makes his captors a surprising–and extremely tempting–offer. Their response to this offer will alter the course of the novel, setting in motion a series of astonishing, ultimately catastrophic events.

Mister Slaughter is at once a classic portrait of an archetypal serial killer and an exquisitely detailed account of a fledgling nation still in the process of inventing itself. Suspenseful, illuminating, never less than compulsively readable, it is, by any measure, an extraordinary achievement, the largest accomplishment to date from one of our most gifted–and necessary–writers.

Happy New Year! This seemed like a good time to flashback many years ago with two photos recently unearthed by Tony Thomas. These promotional photos of Robert McCammon were taken by The Huntsville Times in May 1988 and April 1992. I don’t know if either was actually printed in the paper.

Cardinal Black: Coming April 30, 2019

From Cemetery Dance:

Hi Folks!

We have an important update about Cardinal Black by Robert McCammon to share with you today.

In our excitement to publish this incredible novel as fast as we could, we picked the earliest publication date that was feasible if everything went according to plan after we received the manuscript back in August, and unfortunately our printer has informed us they cannot meet the ship date we requested due to the continuing backlog of work on their main press.

We apologize for this delay. We were a little too excited about publishing this one, and we should have planned on a later date to begin with, but the good news is the printer does have all of the materials for the book and they are firmly committed to getting us the trade hardcover in early April.

We’re setting the new publication date for April 30, 2019 and we thank you again for all of your continuing support!

Cemetery Dance has posted this production update for their upcoming signed, limited editions of Usher’s Passing:

This huge special edition (500+ pages) is on the schedule for next year, and production is moving along as planned at this time.

Robert McCammon has signed the signature sheets and the interior text is being proofread now to catch any errors that slipped in during scanning and design.

In addition, we’re pleased to announce we’ve hired acclaimed artist Vincent Sammy to provide 10 to 12 interior illustrations for the book! His first four finished pieces have been added to the product page as a sample of his work for those who are unfamiliar with his style:


Both editions are long sold-out, but I’m sure copies will show up on eBay after the book is published….
