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.
Czech publisher Classic published a translation of Speaks the Nightbird in July 2017. The cover has been been added to the Book Cover Gallery.
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 sent the cover art for the second volume of their translation of Speaks the Nightbird. Their title, Matthew Corbett und die Hexe von Fount Royal, translates as Matthew Corbett and the Witch of Fount Royal. The cover has been added to the Book Cover Gallery. Book two will be published in hardcover later in 2017.
