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.
An Italian translation of J.N. Williamson’s Illustrated Masques is now available from Cut-Up Publishing. Le Maschere dell’Orrore was published in May 2018.

Paul Wilson, and Wayne Allen Sallee. “Nightcrawlers” was adapted by James Kisner and features art by Ted Naifeh.
