Does ANYONE know of any source where I could purchase SWAN SONG in Hardback? I've been searching for a hardback copy of this masterpiece for years as I've read it at least a dozen times. Mr. McCammon-your works still amaze and bring joy to me.

My husband and I are new comers to McCammon books, having just finished Speaks the Nightbird and Queen of Bedlam, I can answer for both of us on this, we hope there will soon be another Mathew Corbet story . We are avid readers and read a great variety and I'm happy to have come across this author. We are both partial to well written historical novels and these to books fit the bill!

Please abandon the THIRD (OMG!) Matthew Corbett book. The first one was just OK, I was glad to have you back after the long hiatus, but I was sure glad to be done with that long, not-very-interesting book. But you came out with a continuation! Your first sequel ever and it's to one of your weakest books that was twice-over too long already! I bailed on Queen after it failed to change my mind in 100 pages. The first McCammon book I could not complete. Your finest work for me is They Thirst and Swan Song. These two books caused me to read all your others. If you can't recapture that magic again, then please don't get stuck in a rut. Move ON! I cannot and will not read another Matthew Corbett book. You don't necessarily have to return to the horror genre, I like to read anything that's good, but you must not return to the Matthew Corbett genre! At least let the third book be the last forever and come out with something completely different next time.

Mr. McCammon,

I have just finished reading Speaks the Nightbird and Queen of Bedlam. I picked up the first book about two weeks ago, and just finished the second book yesterday. I was (and find I still am) enthralled and engrossed with your new story and characters. Reading both books straight in a row has left me fiending for the next one. Im so happy you have come out of retirement! A very welcome reniassance indeed! As a teenager I became a huge fan of your work, and as my little brother Levon says a few posts down you are the best fiction author ever!

I first discovered Robert McCammon in 1987 when I read Swan Song for the first time. Since then I read Swan Song about 10-12 times. It is one of my favorite all time books. Every other book I have read by McCammon has been excellent. Not like Swan Song, but excellent none the less. Thanks for some very entertaining hours.

Thank you for always being entertaining.
I would really love to read more about
Michael Gallatin. "Live free", is a message that has never left me and the question, "What is the werewolf in the eyes of God?" is begging to be more fully explored. Think about it, Please? I have
patience and realize that perhaps for you it is finished, after all almost 20 years has elapsed, but I hope not. Take care.

I picked up SPEAKS THE NIGHTBIRD at the library and throughly enjoyed it! When I found THE QUEEN OF BEDLAM I was so excited to read more about Matthew Corbett. He is such a great character! You were able to bring colonial America alive for me. It is very hard to wrap my head around how small New York was! I am hoping for another book about Matthew and his investigations!

Mr. McCammon,
i have been reading your work since i was 10 years old and am now 24 and have read all of your books and reread several favorites like swan song, stinger,gone south and boys life and is my opinion that your are the greatest author there is, period.your new series is amazing, i love it,i got lost in matthew's world and in his make it all so alive and vivid.i pray i get to explore more of it.i can't begin imagine what "problems" await matthew to solve.thank you so much for the countless hours of enjoyment and enrichment.

I admit, Matthew was a character I initially disliked. But, it wasn't long before I began to really respect the character for who he was and what he was doing.

I very much enjoy your writing Mr. McCammon. You are a master at painting pictures in my head.
Thank you not only for the wonderful tales but for being an inspiration.

I've read Baal, Stinger, They Thirst, Mine...all excellent, engrossing books - but I just have to say that I consider Swansong to be the most incredible book I have ever read. I am about to start it for the 10th time - each time I read it I find it as exciting, compelling, and brilliantly written as the very first time I read it. I have lent my second copy out (the first fell to pieces some years back) and everyone who has borrowed it has said it is an absolutely awesome read. This book is totally un-put-downable! It's exciting to turn each page to see what happens next, the characterisations are realistic and superbly written, and the reader becomes totally absorbed with their trials and tribulations. Swansong is a truly awesome book. I just wanted to say thanx for it!

See what I mean about "specifics"...I meant the NIGHTBIRD (but as I usually think Nightingale - I went with SONGBIRD, duh!) So author wants his titles remembered accurately, right?

I don't write "fan letters"...but recent discussions in media about people's "favorite books" have brought you up again. BOY'S LIFE is, perhaps, the BEST book I've read in my long (six decades) reading journey. I've reread it and think it will have to be read again this summer...getting older the brain doesn't hold specifics like it used to. So, I don't articulate well WHY I love it but the feeling persists inside me. It was a "fall into" book...something I've long tried to encourage old and young to do regularly (as a teacher/parent/friend)...on my table are the SONGBIRD books as son introduced me to you and he has read nearly all of your works...I did a good job with that one!

I am a fan of your horror series and came to them late. Much better than King. I noticed that the last ones out were old and decided to pop in and see if you're still kicking. Glad to see that you are.

Robert I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of your novels. I am so relieved to see that you have continued writing with the release of 'Bedlam' and I hope you continue to write, albeit at your own pace. Please know that your fans are patient and we'll wait.

"The Queen of Bedlam" was first one of your's I've read. Hoping for sequel to this! Wish I had known of previous Corbett book "nightbird", but will still read it. As for "bedlam", I know you can't possibly leave Matthew Corbett to fend for himself, and you HAVE to write a sequel. Thanks in advance!!

I have just finished Queen of Bedlam and words cannot express how much i thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found myself reading the book at a slower pace simply because i didn't want it to end. Please say there will be another book featuring these wonderful characters that you have created.

Mr. McCammon: Read Queen of Bedlam and loved it. So well done. Then found Boy's Life and laughed and cried and was scared (in a good way) and enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

The first book I ever read by McCammon was Swan Song. It was amazing. Couldn't put it down. Everywhere I went someone asked me about it, and when I finished I paid it forward. Never got it back, and then found it again at a used book store several years later. I plan on reading all of his books, when I retire. Can't wait!

I was one of the first 50 to subscribe to Lights Out, and I still cherish my signed copy by Robert McCammon. Glad to see he's writing again. Speaks the Nightbird was great, BUT!!! Come on Mr. McCammon, The Wolfs Hour still needs a sequel.

I just finished reading "The Queen of Bedlam" and really enjoyed it. This is the first of Mr. Mccammon's books that I've read. I must say I had difficulty the first part of the book, but as I got into it I culdn't put it down. I can't wait for the sequel. Please??

I randomly picked up Speaks the Nightbird three years ago in a Chicago bookstore, and was instantly hooked! I nearly wrote in to beg for continued adventures of Matthew Corbett until I ran into The Queen of Bedlam purely by accident last month. I sincerely hope that his adventures continue for a long time to come! Easily some of the best stores I've read in a very very long time!

I think perhaps you are my favorite author. Most certainly in the top 5.
I've just finished "Speaks The Nightbird" and decided to visit your web site. Can you imagine my excitement when I realized I wasn't yet done with Matthew Corbett! I've read most of your published books and although I wasn't sure I'd be interested in reading about 16th century witches and trials, I knew if anyone could write it so I'd enjoy it, it would be you. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

In 1992 a dear friend gave me an inscribed copy of "Boys Life" for a birthday present. Time went by, the friend passed on and the book was lost. It reappeared on the bookshelf recently with the inscription in place and I am discovering the joy I first felt sixteen years ago. Thank you Robert for encapsulating every young "Boys Life" that was aware enough to feel the magic.

I read voraciously, and always keep the books I want to read over again. This past week while home with the flu I've been re-reading several of your books, and just wanted to thank you for being such a great writer. I hadn't realized there was a new Matthew Corbett book out until I looked this site up-I'm off to the bookstore tomorrow to find it! Thanks again for the pleasure you've brought me.

I named my daughter Bethany after "Bethany's Sin". She's 24 now, and recently bought the book for herself after hearing me mention it over the years. Mr. McCammon is the best. THE STAND by Stephen King pales when compared to SWAN SONG. I just finished BLUE WORLD last night and loved this collection of short stories.

My husband and I are avid readers, especially of Robert McCammon. I can't imagine how much time and energy it's taken him to write any of his books. It's a real treat to be whisked back into the time of Matthew Corbett in "Speaks the Nightbird" and in "Queen of Bedlam". Thanks Mr. McCammon!

I am glad Mr. McCammon is back at it again. I have read most of his work and enjoyed it all. The new books are fantastic and Matthew Corbett is a worthy character and I can't wait to read of his future adventures. I have read many horror stories, but I also like historical fiction as well, especially when it is as well done as by Mr. McCammon. He should never be discouraged. His talent as a story teller has no bounds.
