From Deadline:

Stephen Susco To Adapt Robert McCammon’s ‘Speaks The Nightbird’ For Potential FX Series

By Mike Fleming, Jr
June 3, 2019 5:33pm

EXCLUSIVEFX is developing the Robert McCammon horror novel Speaks The Nightbird for a potential series, and Stephen Susco has been set to adapt.

Wolper Organization’s Mark Wolper, Kevin Matusow for The Traveling Picture Show Company, Shay Prentice and Kevin Nicklaus will produce.

The bestseller tells the dark and chilling tale about a witch-hunt in the seventeenth century Carolina colonies. The series centers around the main character Matthew Corbett.

Susco most recently wrote and directed Unfriended: Dark Web for Blumhouse and Universal, a film that premiered at SXSW last year. Susco scripted The Grudge and The Grudge 2, a highly profitable horror series for Sony.

Susco is repped by Verve.

That’s all the information I have about the project at this time. And it’s not a horror novel.

Finding the Matthew Corbett books in physical formats

Posted by goathunter on May 14, 2019 (Comments Closed)

I see a lot of complaints from people that they can’t find some of the Matthew Corbett books in physical book editions. As of now, all of the books are available in physical formats.

I’ve put together a page that lists online sources from which physical book editions of all of the Matthew Corbett books can be purchased. There are other places that may have some books, but I have verified that these links are valid and active as of this posting. I will try to maintain the links going forward.

Cardinal Black reviews

Posted by goathunter on February 28, 2019 (Comments Closed)

Reviews of Cardinal Black are starting to appear. The Publishers Weekly review can be read online (mild plot spoilers).

Review in Publishers Weekly

As usual, McCammon dazzles the reader with gritty historical detail, vivid local color, and a cast of memorable grotesques….

And from Booklist:

Despite the violence and seriousness of the mission, McCammon is able to interject moments of kindness and even humor throughout.
