Subterranean Press posted this news on their site this morning:

Huge Robert McCammon News—A New Limited Edition and Three Trade Paperbacks

Blue World by Robert McCammon

We’re pleased to announce three new Robert McCammon titles. First up is the Signed Limited Edition of his classic collection, Blue World, expanded to include three newer stories, as well as a full-color dust jacket and full-color interior illustrations by Vincent Chong.

About the Book:

In this expanded edition of Robert McCammon’s classic short story collection, you will encounter horrors and delights in equal measure, including:

  • A man who awakens one morning to find a skeleton in bed where his wife had been the night before.
  • A small-time thief who steals a makeup case, and learns a dead horror star’s secret.
  • A roadside diner, where a Vietnam veteran comes seeking shelter from the storm.
  • A young man in prison, who finds beauty and hope on the wings of a yellow bird.
  • Halloween in a very special residential area, where trick-or-treating is deadly serious.
  • A red house on a street of gray houses, and a breath of sweet fire.
  • The adventures of a has-been serial hero, who dons his old costume and goes in search of a serial killer.
  • A priest obsessed by a porno star, and his realization that both of them are being stalked by a third shadow.
  • An old woman who channels early, simpler times in a melancholy Bradburyesque future.

We will see worlds within worlds through the windows of these stories. We might even see the end of the world, and we might sit on a front porch for a while and sip a glass of gasoline on a hot December day.

Limited: 1000 signed numbered hardcover copies, with exclusive full-color illustrations: $80
Lettered: 52 signed leatherbound copies, housed in a custom traycase: $275

The Wolf’s Hour by Robert R. McCammon. $1.99

From the Jacket Copy:

On the eve of D-Day, a British secret agent with unique powers goes behind Nazi lines Michael Gallatin is a British spy with a peculiar talent: the ability to transform himself into a wolf. Although his work in North Africa helped the Allies win the continent in the early days of World War II, he quit the service when a German spy shot his lover in her bed. Now, three years later, the army asks him to end his retirement and parachute into occupied Paris. A mysterious German plan called the Iron Fist threatens the D-Day invasion, and the Nazi in charge is the spy who betrayed Michael’s lover. The werewolf goes to France for king and country, hoping for a chance at bloody vengeance.

Just discovered today: Robert McCammon was awarded the Japanese Adventure Fiction Association Prize two years in a row in the 1990s. The prize was awarded to Swan Song in 1994 and to Boy’s Life in 1995. The prizes were presented by the Japanese Adventure Fiction Association from 1982 to 2011 for the best adventure novel published the previous year.

Yet another international edition discovery: Robert McCammon’s short story “Black Boots” was included in a 1993 German anthology, Das große Horror-Lesebuch II (Big Book of Horror II). The cover for the book can be seen here. It has been added to the Book Cover Gallery.

And a roundup of various posts from around the ‘net in the past month:
