Cardinal Black by Robert McCammon
The Next Thrilling Matthew Corbett Adventure!
Featuring Cover and Interior Artwork by Vincent Chong!

Hi Folks!

More big news this month for Robert McCammon fans! We’re thrilled to announce we’ll be publishing his new novel, Cardinal Black, which is the latest installment in his incredible Matthew Corbett series! (Don’t worry if you haven’t read the series yet, this novel is a terrific stand-alone read, too. McCammon really balances the story for both die-hard fans of the series and new readers!)

About the Book:
Cardinal Black is the newest installment in Robert McCammon’s unique series of historical thrillers featuring Matthew Corbett, professional problem solver, who has been called “the Early American James Bond.”

December 1703 finds Berry Grigsby living as Mary Lynn Nash in a small Welsh village where she has fallen victim to Professor Fell’s involuntary drug experiments. Her mind is quickly deteriorating under the drug’s influence, and the only way to save her is a potion book that was stolen in an attack on the village orchestrated by a mysterious madman going by the name Cardinal Black.

Matthew Corbett has volunteered to travel with Julian Devane, a self-proclaimed “fool and bad man” in the employ of Professor Fell, to hunt down the potion book. They follow the trail to London, where the book will be sold at a secret auction. Matthew and Julian manage to secure a seat at the auction by masquerading as respected and feared underground operatives, but to prevail in their high-stakes mission, they will require help from a very unlikely source. Even if they are successful, their race to save Berry Grigsby will leave a trail of destruction in its wake.

Cardinal Black is another extraordinary achievement from one of America’s most skilled authors, and it features some of the most memorable, compelling, and chilling characters in the Matthew Corbett series to date, each with their own competing agendas. This masterful historical adventure is perfectly balanced for long-time fans of the series and new readers alike who are now joining the adventure.

Vincent Chong posted this on his blog this morning:

A while ago I posted a sketch I did for an idea for one of the interior pieces for Freedom of the Mask, by Robert McCammon, which was ultimately unused.  A fan of the Matthew Corbett series saw the sketch and ended up commissioning me to produce the finished art based on it.  Here’s the result.

Collector Yegor Malinovskii recently shared some photos of his one-of-a-kind lettered edition of Blue World. The book was published by Subterranean Press last year, and Yegor had artist Vincent Chong add several remarques (original illustrations) to the book. They look fantastic!

Thanks, Yegor! Yegor had previously submitted photos of his remarqued editions of the Matthew Corbett series.

Vincent Chong: Freedom of the Mask Unused Art Idea

From artist Vincent Chong:

Freedom of the Mask Unused Idea

by vincentchong

Here is a sketch intended for one of the Freedom of the Mask b&w interiors.  It was unused in the end as the publisher thought it was best not to depict any scenes of torture in the illustrations so I chose an alternative scene to illustrate.
