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.
