Sub Press has released a free eBook by McCammon! It should be on their website under eBooks.
I've never read him but coincidentally, a facebook friend asked over the weekend if I had ever read any of his books. Perhaps I should try one or two. I saw he's won several Stoker awards (Horror Writers Association awards).
You should definitely give McCammon a try, IMO!
Thank you for the insight, Hunter, it's appreciated.Robert McCammon's The Five is now available as an ebook for the Kindle and the NOOK.
Yes, a very good sign. And Uncle Stevie didn't just recommend The Five, he said (in his opinion) that it's McCammon's absolute best.It sounds really good, and a recommendation from Stephen King is always a good sign.

ordering page for The Hunter from the Woods, the collection of stories and novellas featuring Michael Gallatin from The Wolf's Hour. The ebook is "The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs," one of the novellas from this collection.
Mister Slaughter is on sale for 4.99 at Amazon. Rocking price for a righteous book. Jesus, what a great author. My wife is on her second RM novel and is loving him too.
No, there are no plans at this time for another edition of The Wolf's Hour. The original contract was for the limited edition(s) alone.
Note that the novella included in the limited edition of The Wolf's Hour was "The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs," which is the free ebook mentioned above.
I read Stinger many and many a, ago...liked it a great deal..
I just re-read Blue World, which had been my favorite McCammon ... and I wasn't very impressed. I liked it quite a bit several years ago, but it just doesn't do much for me now. It wasn't bad, but like so many of his stories, they never seemed to really find their legs and take off running. I keep waiting to be hooked, wowed, or at least genuinely entertained ... but the more I read of him the less interest I have in continued reading. I might give The Five a try but, honestly, if that doesn't do it I'll probably never pick up another. Some authors and readers just don't mix.
