Kazuki Tamada has contributed new illustrations inspired by Gone South and the short story “Something Passed By.” You can see more of Kazuki’s artwork—as well as art from several other McCammon fans—in the Fan Art Gallery.
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).

Audible will produce an audiobook version of Robert McCammon’s upcoming SF/horror novel The Border. The novel will be published in Spring 2015 by Subterranean Press. The audiobook will presumably be released at the same time, though the exact date is not known yet.
You can read a little more about The Border here.
