I just found these remarques by Vincent Chong for The Wolf’s Hour and The Hunter from the Woods. I’d seen a photo of the latter before, but this is the first time I’ve seen a remarque for The Wolf’s Hour. Most excellent! The remarqued limited editions are currently listed for sale as a set on ABE by a bookseller in the UK. (A remarque is an original drawing in a book.) Thanks to Paul Evans for the photos.
Subterranean Press has just reprinted the trade edition of The Hunter from the Woods, and I just received word that Robert McCammon will be at Alabama Booksmith at 5 PM on Thursday, February 13, 2020, to chat about The Hunter from the Woods and to provide a sneak preview of the next Matthew Corbett book. He will, of course, sign copies of The Hunter from the Woods, which will be available for purchase that day, as well as any other books you purchase there or bring with you.
The Alabama Booksmith is located in Birmingham, AL. If you can’t make it to the signing, you can order signed copies from the Alabama Booksmith website.
May 22, 2020, update: According to Amazon, the publication date for this book is now March 23, 2021.
Back in September, we told you about Cemetery Dance’s announcement to publish Seasons of Terror, a graphic collection of four stories by Bradbury, King, Jackson, and McCammon, all adapted by Richard Chizmar. You can read about that here. The Robert McCammon story in this collection is “The Man from London,” originally published in The Hunter from the Woods.
Simon & Schuster will publish a trade hardcover edition (and fixed layout ebook) of this publication under their Gallery Books imprint on
March 31, 2020 March 23, 2021. Their edition is now available for pre-ordering from Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million.
From the S&S webpage:
Spine-tingling stories that can be enjoyed all year round—this deliciously creepy and gorgeously wrought graphic anthology introduces a new generation to four literary giants—Ray Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, Stephen King, and Robert McCammon.
In the spring, a young girl hears a woman crying for help from beneath the dirt in her backyard, but no one seems to believe her…During summertime, a college student inexplicably walks deeper and deeper into the thick forest, until he happens upon a stone cottage whose inhabitants lead a very particular way of life…Before the fall chill arrives, a group of friends embark on an adventurous weekend to a remote lake where a sinister force awaits…In the dark depths of winter, behind frigid enemy lines, Great Britain’s most potent weapon against Nazi Germany lives between worlds: good and evil, and man and wolf….
With evocative prose and vivid illustrations, these unforgettable stories—“The Screaming Woman” by Ray Bradbury; “The Man in the Woods” by Shirley Jackson; “The Raft” by Stephen King; and “The Man from London” by Robert McCammon—embody the seasons in which they are set, bringing you to the very edge of reality, mixing the best elements of the mythology of our youth with the perilous horrors of adulthood.
From Subterranean Press:
In the years since it was initially released, we’ve seen Robert McCammon’s The Hunter from the Woods go up in price astronomically on the secondary market. Even the trade paperback will set you back a cool $90 or more.
That’s just one of the reasons we’re happy to announce that we’re doing a small reprint of the trade hardcover edition.
About the Book:
Subterranean Press is proud to present a series of adventures, including several novelettes and novellas, set both pre- and post- Robert McCammon’s classic novel, The Wolf’s Hour.
In the shadowed corners behind enemy lines, Michael Gallatin is England’s most potent weapon against Nazi Germany. Blessed and cursed by the ability to transform his flesh, Michael lives between worlds as both man and wolf. A gifted spy and a cunning warrior, he is unmatched in the field. No ordinary agent of the British Crown, he’s the one they send when there’s no one else.
Returning to a vision first imagined in the New York Times Bestseller The Wolf’s Hour, horror master Robert McCammon traces the life of a single man in the midst of the Second World War. From a traveling circus in the Russian steppes, to the skies of North Africa, to the gritty underworld of Berlin itself, The Hunter from the Woods pits Michael against impossible odds, where failure means death and so, too, might victory.
Told through a series of interconnected novellas and short stories, McCammon shows us how Michael lived and loved during a time in history when there was little room for either. A visceral and primal journey, The Hunter from the Woods revels in the intimate cruelty of war, but never fails to illuminate the resilience of the human spirit. The Wolf’s Hour may be Michael Gallatin’s greatest adventure, but these are the stories that comprise his life. They present an alternate history every Robert McCammon fan, and every fan of thrilling fiction, will want to read.
