We’re starting the year off with a fantastic video from Japanese illustrator Kazuki Tamada! His favorite Robert McCammon novel is The Wolf’s Hour, and he sent in this kamisabi, which is a Japanese traditional storytelling style that translates as a “picture-story show.” This video features illustrations and music by Kazuki Tamada that tell the opening chapter of The Wolf’s Hour. It’s a pretty amazing piece of work!
Japanese artist and McCammon fan Kazuki Tamada has contributed a new illustration inspired by They Thirst, as well as photos of statues he made depicting Speaks the Nightbird‘s Rachel Howarth and werewolves from The Wolf’s Hour.

On April 9, 2015, Robert McCammon visited the campus of Northeast Alabama Community College. The English classes there had read Boy’s Life and were assigned to create various Boy’s Life-inspired projects: dioramas, games, and other displays. Click on the link below to view a gallery of photos of the projects. Thanks to NACC’s Joan Reeves and Joan Tucker for the photos!
Robert McCammon fan Paul Halucha recently sent me these photos of a custom wooden slipcase he had made for his lettered copy of the Dark Harvest edition of Swan Song. The case was made by Dick Olson of Bookslipcase.com (aka Dolso Cases).
