Subterranean Press has just reprinted the trade edition of The Hunter from the Woods, and I just received word that Robert McCammon will be at Alabama Booksmith at 5 PM on Thursday, February 13, 2020, to chat about The Hunter from the Woods and to provide a sneak preview of the next Matthew Corbett book. He will, of course, sign copies of The Hunter from the Woods, which will be available for purchase that day, as well as any other books you purchase there or bring with you.

The Alabama Booksmith is located in Birmingham, AL. If you can’t make it to the signing, you can order signed copies from the Alabama Booksmith website.

  • 12–12:50 — Remembering the 1980s Horror Boom: The Netflix cable series Stranger Things has romanticized horror in the 1980s, but what was it really like back then? Return with us to the glory days of printed paper fanzines and VHS “video nasties,” when Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone was resurrected as both a TV show and a newsstand magazine, and authors such as Robert McCammon, Whitley Strieber, Peter Straub, and Charlie Grant were hailed as “the next Stephen King.” Nicoll, McCammon, Webb, Antczak
  • 2–2:50 — A Reading from Guest of Honor: Robert McCammon. Award winning author Robert McCammon will read a sample of his work (author’s choice), followed by a short Q&A with the audience.
  • 5–5:50 — Historical Thriller: Matthew Corbett, Professional Problem Solver. With the latest release of Cardinal Black, there are now seven books in the popular Matthew Corbett series. Join GOH Robert McCammon as he discusses the world of Mattew Corbett and the future of the series.

Sunday, January 26:

  • 1–1:50 — Bullet or Boogeyman?: Has the current world, with mass shootings, nuclear tensions and climate disasters, become scarier than the horrors we imagine? Or does it provide fertile ground for new terrors? McCammon, Nicoll, Antczak, Mills

I presume there will be many opportunities to get books signed after each of these sessions.
