We’re a month away from the release of Robert McCammon’s new novel, The Listener. The limited edition from Cemetery Dance is long sold-out, but copies of the UK limited edition from SST Publications can still be ordered. Click here for details.

If you want a signed copy of the trade hardcover, you can pre-order a copy from Alabama Booksmith. As I previously mentioned, Robert McCammon will be signing copies of The Listener and other books at the launch event for The Listener at Alabama Booksmith on Tuesday, February 27, 2018, at 5 PM.

Every pre-order comes with a chance in the drawing for the 30th anniversary slipcase limited edition of Swan Song and a certificate signed by Mr. McCammon authenticating that copy was purchased prior to publication.

Here’s a great new, spoiler-free review of THE LISTENER from @SadieLouWho!

“I just added a new book to my list of all time favorite novels. I added Curtis Mayhew to my all time favorite characters list and I became a certified, legit fangirl of Robert McCammon because of this story: The Listener.”

Early reviews of The Listener

 The Listener  Comments Off on Early reviews of The Listener

Early reviews of The Listener have started showing up. Author Kealan Patrick Burke tweeted a couple of weeks ago, “THE LISTENER by Robert McCammon is astonishing.” He’ll be posting a full review soon. In the meantime, here are links to a few others. All of the reviews contain very mild spoilers, so don’t read them if you don’t want to know anything at all about the book.

PW StarMcCammon masterfully combines historical thriller and supernatural horror in a compelling and suspenseful tale of race, class, and family… This is a violent and gritty tale, but redemption is always possible.”
— Booklist (Starred Review)

“At a certain point in The Listener, you just have to hold on for dear life because this tale races to the denouement and you HAVE to know what happens. I recommend shutting yourself in a room for the last 50 pages so you can read it without being bothered. Trust me on this! You will be rewarded with an ending so poignant, yet so perfect and totally satisfying that you might find yourself with a tear in your eye.”
— Char’s Horror Corner

“It’s not every day you come across such an intoxicating blend of literary prowess and unapologetic adventure-seeking as what Robert McCammon delivers with The Listener.
— Pete Mesling in his review “Softly Comes but Firmly Stays the Listener”

“For many years he has ranked amongst the finest writers of dark fiction in the world and “The Listener” sits comfortably with his unmatchable body of work. As this is a stand-alone novel, if you’ve never read McCammon before, this is as good a place to start as any.
— Tony Jones, Ginger Nuts of Horror

“McCammon (Freedom of the Mask) conjures believable characters whose sympathetic plight pulls the reader headlong into the novel’s volatile mix of crime and fantasy. Its tense finale, paced at breakneck speed, will have readers turning pages until its surprise-packed end. ”
— Publishers Weekly

The Listener can be pre-ordered from Cemetery Dance.
