Freedom of the Mask release day!

Posted by goathunter on May 31, 2016 (Comments Closed)

Robert McCammon’s Freedom of the Mask, book six in the Matthew Corbett series, is available now! While Subterranean Press began shipping books a couple of weeks ago, the ebook and audiobook editions are now available. If you purchase the Kindle ebook, you can add the Audible audiobook for only $1.99 more!

I hope to have an audiobook giveaway later this week. Stay tuned!

Regarding the trade edition from Amazon, it shows as “Temporarily Out of Stock.” I checked in with Bill at Subterranean this morning, and he said that Amazon’s carrier was late picking up their shipments, so Amazon should have the books soon, if they don’t already.

Great reviews for Freedom of the Mask

Posted by goathunter on May 28, 2016 (Comments Closed)

In addition to the starred review from Publishers Weekly, two more fantastic, non-spoiler reviews of Freedom of the Mask were posted this week.

NetGalley reviewer Chris concludes:

“5 stars. The type of book that is the reason we love stories. Imagination too large for a movie can only exist in books like this. Adventure just doesn’t get any better.”

NetGalley user Chris McCaffrey: Freedom of the Mask

And Elitist Book Reviews concludes:

“FREEDOM OF THE MASK has every bit the adventure of the prior two novels, but also manages to incorporate more of the historical details and stylings of the first few novels. It is, simply put, an incredible novel.”

Freedom may just be the most exciting of the Matthew Corbett novels yet, garnering a starred review from Publishers Weekly:

McCammon’s rousing sixth yarn featuring Matthew Corbett (after 2014’s The River of Souls) transports the early 18th-century American problem solver across the Atlantic to London, where he’s clapped into hellish Newgate Prison on murder charges. Matthew quickly becomes embroiled in mysteries involving fellow inmate Daniel Defoe; a gin-running street gang, the Black-Eyed Broodies; a kidnapped Italian opera singer; and a masked avenger named Albion, whose exploits are sensationalized (along with Matthew’s) in a penny dreadful broadsheet, the Pin

A Starred Review for Freedom of the Mask

From Subterranean Press:

Robert McCammon’s Freedom of the Mask page is burgeoning with features. In addition to the standard description, there’s a interview with the author, an excerpt from the novel, and now, a cutting from the starred review the novel just received from Publishers Weekly:

McCammon’s rousing sixth yarn featuring Matthew Corbett (after 2014’s The River of Souls) transports the early 18th-century American problem solver across the Atlantic to London, where he’s clapped into hellish Newgate Prison on murder charges.

Robert McCammon on Freedom of the Mask

Posted by goathunter on March 6, 2016 (Comments Closed)

Subterranean Press posted this today:

Over at the Freedom of the Mask product page, we’ve posted a brand new interview with Robert McCammon, and an excerpt from the novel.

To get you started, here’s one of the questions from the interview:

GB: Getting such a note-perfect glimpse of 1700s America is one of the highlights of the series, and this new volume stays in fine form despite the move in scenery. Did you have to do a lot of research on England in this period or was it already something you were a buff about? Any surprising tidbits from your research?

RM: I had already done a lot of research on London and was saving it up for this book. Also I’ve had the idea of the hidden village in Wales for a long time. Nothing really surprised me about my research except to realize how really crazed, blood-thirsty and wicked that city was during the time period I’m writing about…what there was of the law had its hands full and mostly stayed out of the way. Oh, and I couldn’t really describe the full reality of Newgate Prison because no modern reader would believe it…the prisoners had a bar in there and had their liquor brought in…at the same time prisoners were killing each other over pairs of shoes and the guards were being paid by the inmates…it was crazy!

As a reminder, the signed limited edition and lettered edition contain a new bonus 22,000 word novella available nowhere else, as well as color plates by Vincent Chong.

Freedom of the Mask will be published in May 2016. Ebook and audiobook editions will also be published then.

Freedom of the Mask sent to the printer

Posted by goathunter on February 24, 2016 (Comments Closed)

Subterranean Press reports:

Robert McCammon’s new Matthew Corbett thriller, Freedom of the Mask, has just been sent to the printer, which puts the trade edition right on schedule for a May release. We still have a good supply of all editions available for preorder, though these novels have a history of going out of print quickly after publication.

About the Book:

The year is 1703, and Matthew Corbett, professional “problem solver,” is missing. Last seen by his friends in New York before he departed on a lucrative, seemingly straightforward mission for the Herrald Agency in Charles Town, he’s been too long absent. His comrade-in-arms Hudson Greathouse has an increasing sense the young friend he thinks of as a son must have met with some unexpected peril. Following his hunch, Greathouse retraces Matthew’s steps only to find him first presumed dead, then accused of murdering a young woman and apparently en route to London with a devious Prussian count last encountered on Professor Fell’s Pendulum Island.

Little does he know that Matthews’s circumstances are growing worse by the second. For when Matthew arrives in the bustling squalor of Londontown, he’s come shackled, charged for the murder of Count Anton Mannerheim Dahlgren. No matter the lack of body, presumed lost to the ocean. He soon finds himself locked up in the infamous Newgate prison, and has drawn the interest of a mysterious mask-wearing vigilante accused of several gruesome murders. Greathouse and the woman Matthew loves, Berry Grigsby, travel across the high seas to England to aid their friend, but it is impossible to know whether they will reach him in time to save his life.

Freedom of the Mask is the sixth installment in bestselling author Robert McCammon’s acclaimed series of standalone historical thrillers featuring the exploits of a young hero the USA Character Approved Blog has called “the Early American James Bond.” The most surprising and ambitious volume to date, this is a novel filled with unpredictable twists and a note-perfect depiction of early 1700s London. Fans will not want to miss Matthew Corbett’s most dangerous adventure yet.

The Limited Edition will contain an exclusive bonus novella—over 22,000 words long—featuring Hudson Greathouse’s visit to “The House at the Edge of the World.”
