Russian publisher Azbooka-Atticus has acquired the translation rights for five Robert McCammon novels: Boy’s Life, Swan Song, The Border, The Listener, and Speaks the Nightbird. No word on when the books will be published, but I would guess the first will appear in 2019.
The ebook edition of Robert McCammon’s Boy’s Life is one of twenty-two books included in the Humble Book Bundle: Forbidden Books this year. Pay what you want, and help support charity. The more you pay, the more books you get. To get Boy’s Life (along with 14 other books), you must pay $8 or more. Bundled books are DRM-free, and the charities supported this year are National Coalition Against Censorship and Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
Open Road Media recently bundled four of Robert McCammon’s ebook titles as The Southern Novels. Included in the bundle are Boy’s Life, Mystery Walk, Usher’s Passing, and Gone South.
As of March 21, 2018, at 4:29 PM CDT, this 4-book bundle is sale-priced at only $3.99! Act fast!
