German published Luzifer Verlag has acquired the German translation rights for Mister Slaughter, book three in Robert McCammon’s Matthew Corbett series. Luzifer just recently published volume two of their translation of The Queen of Bedlam. No word on a publication date yet.
Subterranean Press posted this announcement this morning:
We (and the author) have noticed that one of the earlier Matthew Corbett novels has been bringing in high prices on the secondary market, making it inaccessible to general readers, so have decided to reprint the trade hardcover of Mister Slaughter. This reprint will not be huge, so if you’d like a copy, please get your order in.
Trade: Fully cloth bound hardcover edition: $40
The book will also be available through Cemetery Dance:
Cemetery Dance has posted the final cover for Cardinal Black, which they’re publishing in early 2019.

The Next Thrilling Matthew Corbett Adventure!
Featuring Cover and Interior Artwork by Vincent Chong!
More big news this month for Robert McCammon fans! We’re thrilled to announce we’ll be publishing his new novel, Cardinal Black, which is the latest installment in his incredible Matthew Corbett series! (Don’t worry if you haven’t read the series yet, this novel is a terrific stand-alone read, too. McCammon really balances the story for both die-hard fans of the series and new readers!)
About the Book:
Cardinal Black is the newest installment in Robert McCammon’s unique series of historical thrillers featuring Matthew Corbett, professional problem solver, who has been called “the Early American James Bond.”
December 1703 finds Berry Grigsby living as Mary Lynn Nash in a small Welsh village where she has fallen victim to Professor Fell’s involuntary drug experiments. Her mind is quickly deteriorating under the drug’s influence, and the only way to save her is a potion book that was stolen in an attack on the village orchestrated by a mysterious madman going by the name Cardinal Black.
Matthew Corbett has volunteered to travel with Julian Devane, a self-proclaimed “fool and bad man” in the employ of Professor Fell, to hunt down the potion book. They follow the trail to London, where the book will be sold at a secret auction. Matthew and Julian manage to secure a seat at the auction by masquerading as respected and feared underground operatives, but to prevail in their high-stakes mission, they will require help from a very unlikely source. Even if they are successful, their race to save Berry Grigsby will leave a trail of destruction in its wake.
Cardinal Black is another extraordinary achievement from one of America’s most skilled authors, and it features some of the most memorable, compelling, and chilling characters in the Matthew Corbett series to date, each with their own competing agendas. This masterful historical adventure is perfectly balanced for long-time fans of the series and new readers alike who are now joining the adventure.
Robert McCammon has completed writing Cardinal Black, the seventh entry in the Matthew Corbett series. It’s too soon to know anything about publication details, but stay tuned!
AudioFile Magazine’s Five Questions with Edoardo Ballerini, who brilliantly narrates the Matthew Corbett audiobooks. From the article:
“Robert McCammon’s SPEAKS THE NIGHTBIRD shows American colonial life in all its brutal glory. Edoardo’s perfect portrayals—a fire-and-brimstone preacher, a woman accused of witchcraft, a young magistrate’s clerk—earned him an Earphones Award and a spot on the Audies shortlist. This is a story of secrets and fear and a small community trying to set down roots in a strange new world.”
German publisher Luzifer Verlag has posted the pre-order pages for Matthew Corbett und die Königin der Verdammten, their German translation of The Queen of Bedlam. As with Matthew Corbett und die Hexe von Fount Royal, the book will be published in two editions. The most-excellent covers by Michael Schubert are shown below.
Book One will be released on June 30, 2018, and Book Two will be released on October 31, 2018.
Vincent Chong posted this on his blog this morning:
A while ago I posted a sketch I did for an idea for one of the interior pieces for Freedom of the Mask, by Robert McCammon, which was ultimately unused. A fan of the Matthew Corbett series saw the sketch and ended up commissioning me to produce the finished art based on it. Here’s the result.

The Queen of Bedlam was released to those markets in May, and Mister Slaughter, The Hunter from the Woods, The Providence Rider, and The River of Souls followed over the summer.
