Actually, the old T-shirts never went away, I just haven’t promoted them much recently. I’ve finally created T-shirts that feature the cover art from Freedom of the Mask and Cardinal Black. Vincent Chong graciously allowed me to reproduce his cover art on the shirts.
The T-shirts can be ordered from Spreadshirt. The prices of the shirts are the base prices from Spreadshirt. In order to keep the prices as low as possible, we did not tack on any additional fees.

Wolper Organization’s Mark Wolper, Kevin Matusow for The Traveling Picture Show Company, Shay Prentice and Kevin Nicklaus will produce.
The bestseller tells the dark and chilling tale about a witch-hunt in the seventeenth century Carolina colonies. The series centers around the main character Matthew Corbett.
Susco most recently wrote and directed Unfriended: Dark Web for Blumhouse and Universal, a film that premiered at SXSW last year. Susco scripted The Grudge and The Grudge 2, a highly profitable horror series for Sony.
Susco is repped by Verve.
That’s all the information I have about the project at this time. And it’s not a horror novel.
Cardinal Black is available in trade hardcover, ebook, and audiobook editions.

Copies can be purchased from SST Publications. They also still have copies of their lettered edition, featuring a beautiful wraparound dustjacket by Ben Baldwin! Their edition of The Listener, also still available from them, is a gorgeous book that drew rave reviews from readers who purchased it. I expect the same will be true of their editions of Cardinal Black.
Robert McCammon hopes you’ll enjoy this new story, “The Pale Pipesmoker,” while you wait for the release of Cardinal Black! Set in Matthew Corbett’s World, “The Pale Pipesmoker” features Katherine Herrald and Minx Cutter in a tale that takes place during the timeframe of Freedom of the Mask.

Subterranean Press has announced that they are reprinting The Providence Rider in trade hardcover! Copies have been scarce lately and command high prices, so this reprint, along with their recent reprint of Mister Slaughter, is very welcome!
Copies are expected to ship in April 2019.
Here’s the Subterranean announcement:
We’re happy to report that Robert McCammon’s The Providence Rider is returning to the world with a small trade hardcover reprint. We’ve seen copies of this entry in Matthew Corbett’s adventures climb in price on the secondary market, and wanted to offer a bit more reasonably priced alternative.
The Providence Rider remains my favorite of the Corbett novels, as McCammon gathers an extensive cast of cutthroats and bad-doers under one roof, then drops Matthew right in the middle.
About the Book:
The Providence Rider is the fourth standalone installment in the extraordinary series of historical thrillers featuring Matthew Corbett, professional problem solver. The narrative begins in the winter of 1703, with Matthew still haunted by his lethal encounter with notorious mass murderer Tyranthus Slaughter. When an unexplained series of explosions rocks his Manhattan neighborhood, Matthew finds himself forced to confront a new and unexpected problem. Someone is trying-and trying very hard-to get his attention. That someone is a shadowy figure from out of Matthew’s past: the elusive Professor Fell. The professor, it turns out, has a problem of his own, one that requires the exclusive services of Matthew Corbett.
The ensuing narrative moves swiftly and gracefully from the emerging metropolis of New York City to Pendulum Island in the remote Bermudas. In the course of his journey, Matthew encounters a truly Dickensian assortment of memorable, often grotesque, antagonists. These include Sirki, the giant, deceptively soft-spoken East Indian killer, Dr. Jonathan Gentry, an expert in exotic potions with a substance abuse problem of his own, the beautiful but murderous Aria Chillany, and, of course, the master manipulator and “Emperor of Crime” on two continents, Professor Fell himself. The result is both an exquisitely constructed novel of suspense and a meticulous recreation of a bygone era.
Trade Hardcover Edition: $45
Here’s a bit of praise for the novel from Publishers Weekly:
“Problem-solver Matthew Corbett’s past comes back to haunt him in McCammon’s intriguing fourth historical thriller (after 2010’s Mister Slaughter). Shanghaied in 1704 from Manhattan to Pendulum Island, the Bermuda home of his nemesis, criminal mastermind Professor Fell, Matthew is tasked with finding out who among Fell’s criminal confederates is leaking to England Fell’s plans to sell a devastating new type of weapon to the nation’s European enemies. Once again, McCammon provides a colorful and well-researched depiction of colonial America, enlived by a rogues’ gallery of well-drawn characters. Hair’s-breadth escapes and the teasing promise that characters who appear to have been disposed of might resurface in future adventures make this a rollicking good yarn.”
Audible Studios has produced an audiobook edition of Robert McCammon’s upcoming Cardinal Black. The audiobook is narrated by the incredible Edoardo Ballerini, who has narrated all of the Matthew Corbett audiobooks.
The audiobook can now be pre-ordered via Audible and Amazon. It will be released on April 30, 2019.
The trade hardcover and ebooks will also be released on April 30.
