Praise for Mister Slaughter


“Robert McCammon is back with a new book, a new publisher and the future looks good for him. As well as his readers. Don’t pass up Mister Slaughter and if you haven’t read Speaks the Nightbird and The Queen of Bedlam, you’d better start reading. Fiction doesn’t get any better than these books.”

—Mark Sieber, Horror Drive-In


“I finished Robert McCammon’s forthcoming @subpress book last night. Wonderful read! One of his 3 best novels.”

—Brian Keene via Twitter


“For those readers who have yet to try one of the Corbett novels because they’re not exactly in the horror genre, I urge you to reconsider. Mister Slaughter is one of the most satisfying nail-biters you’ll read all year.”

—Mark Justice, Horror World


“This book is definitely Robert McCammon at his best. This is also a novel that you will want to keep in hardcover and as a collector’s item.”

—Wayne C. Rogers


“The book is a fine installment in a series whose charming protagonist has a lot of life left in him.”



Praise for The Queen of Bedlam


“[A] spellbinding sequel to Speaks the Nightbird…. McCammon brilliantly captured colonial New York and closes with a tantalizing cliffhanger that suggests more exciting sleuthing to come.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)


“McCammon keeps the story moving. Fans of Speaks the Nightbird will certainly enjoy this…[as will] new readers.”

Library Journal


“McCammon skillfully re-creates early-eighteenth-century America…. He paints a picture of a vastly different time without letting research overwhelm his storytelling…. The revelations [are] gratifying.”



Praise for Speaks the Nightbird


“An excellent story, full of tension and suspense…. Thoughtful as well as entertaining—think Burn, Witch, Burn crossed with Arthur Miller’s The Crucible…. The week I spent listening to the nightbird every evening between eight and eleven was a very fine one.”

—Stephen King


“No one can paint word pictures as vividly as Robert McCammon, and never has his palette had such depth as in Speaks the Nightbird. Told with matchless insight into the human soul, this novel makes for a deeply satisfying read.”

—Sandra Brown, bestselling author


“Powerful and tense, thrilling and atmospheric.”

The Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, MS)


“A fine detective story…an exposé into the dark side of human nature…. Will keep readers glued to the pages.”

Rocky Mountain News (Denver)


“Disturbing… McCammon tells a compelling story.”
