Robert McCammon was a Featured Author at the 2019 Catfish Book Festival in Athens, AL.

A couple of international rights deals were recently made:

Boy’s Life has been previously published a few times in France.

This will be the first Bulgarian edition of Swan Song. Iztok-Zapad previously published Boy’s Life in 2013.

I would expect that it’ll be at least a year before either edition is published.

Robert McCammon’s The Five includes the lyrics for a song by The Five entitled “When The Storm Breaks.” Dave Drowley was inspired by those lyrics to write and perform this song, with help from Karl Percy and Darren Hardstaff. The lyrics for the song are included below. The song can be found on YouTube.

“When The Storm Breaks”

Lyrics by Dave Drowley, based on lyrics by Robert McCammon

I was raised to think
I was red white and blue
I was raised to do
What I was told to do
Somehow in that time
I never did ask why
It’s young men like me
Who go to kill and die

When the storm breaks
And the rain begins to fall
And the mighty laugh
With a howllow cat call
We’ve got money for oil
You got battles to fight
And the heroes come home
In the dead of night

And it’s coming around again
What are we fighting for
Yes it’s coming around again
Why do we always need a war

I’m not saying this world
Should always get along
Won’t pretend it’s alright
When I know it’s all so wrong
But I do believe that war
Makes some men very rich
So many of them love
That wicked bitch

I was walking down the street
The sun was burning hot
Minding my own business
To have or to have not
Thought I heard a rumble
Might be thunder in the sky
Or the discontent
Of a stranger passing by


This was someone’s child
This was someone’s dream
I hope they bury them
Where the grass is green
When the storm breaks
and the lightning tears the sky
the rain falls down so hard
why those left behind just cry

I was raised to think
That my country’s always right
I was always told
to fight the good fight
Somehow in that time
I never questioned why
The gods of war control
Why my friends go to die.
