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.

Seasons of Terror trade release in March 2021

 Short stories, The Hunter from the Woods, The Wolf's Hour  Comments Off on Seasons of Terror trade release in March 2021
Oct 302019
 

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.

Happy New Year!

We’re starting the year off with a fantastic video from Japanese illustrator Kazuki Tamada! His favorite Robert McCammon novel is The Wolf’s Hour, and he sent in this kamisabi, which is a Japanese traditional storytelling style that translates as a “picture-story show.” This video features illustrations and music by Kazuki Tamada that tell the opening chapter of The Wolf’s Hour. It’s a pretty amazing piece of work!

You can view it on YouTube.

You can see more of Kazuki Tamada’s work here, including other great pieces based on The Wolf’s Hour and others.

You can see lots more great artwork contributed by fans in the Fan Artwork gallery.
