Saturday, November 23, 2019, Robert McCammon participated in a Noir at the Bar event with a dozen other authors at The Wild Roast Café in Hoover, AL. Each author had a few minutes to read a short story or an excerpt from one of their works. McCammon chose to write a new story for the event called “DST, INC.”

David Walters of Authors on a Podcast Talking Books recorded audio of the event, including the full reading of “DST, INC.” He posted the podcast on Anchor.fm. It can also be heard on Spotify.

I extracted Robert McCammon’s reading and adjusted the audio some to make it easier to hear. You can listen to Robert McCammon reading “DST, INC.” below.

If you’d rather read “DST, INC.” you can find it here.

You can also download the story in these formats: AZW3 (Kindle)MOBIEPUB (NOOK)PDF

 Short stories, The Hunter from the Woods, The Wolf's Hour  Comments Off on Seasons of Terror trade release in March 2021
Oct 302019

May 22, 2020, update: According to Amazon, the publication date for this book is now March 23, 2021.

Back in September, we told you about Cemetery Dance’s announcement to publish Seasons of Terror, a graphic collection of four stories by Bradbury, King, Jackson, and McCammon, all adapted by Richard Chizmar. You can read about that here. The Robert McCammon story in this collection is “The Man from London,” originally published in The Hunter from the Woods.

Simon & Schuster will publish a trade hardcover edition (and fixed layout ebook) of this publication under their Gallery Books imprint on March 31, 2020 March 23, 2021. Their edition is now available for pre-ordering from Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million.

From the S&S webpage:

Spine-tingling stories that can be enjoyed all year round—this deliciously creepy and gorgeously wrought graphic anthology introduces a new generation to four literary giants—Ray Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, Stephen King, and Robert McCammon.

In the spring, a young girl hears a woman crying for help from beneath the dirt in her backyard, but no one seems to believe her…During summertime, a college student inexplicably walks deeper and deeper into the thick forest, until he happens upon a stone cottage whose inhabitants lead a very particular way of life…Before the fall chill arrives, a group of friends embark on an adventurous weekend to a remote lake where a sinister force awaits…In the dark depths of winter, behind frigid enemy lines, Great Britain’s most potent weapon against Nazi Germany lives between worlds: good and evil, and man and wolf….

With evocative prose and vivid illustrations, these unforgettable stories—“The Screaming Woman” by Ray Bradbury; “The Man in the Woods” by Shirley Jackson; “The Raft” by Stephen King; and “The Man from London” by Robert McCammon—embody the seasons in which they are set, bringing you to the very edge of reality, mixing the best elements of the mythology of our youth with the perilous horrors of adulthood.
