Pre-Order The Five
I've read a lot of books, and I've met a lot of writers. That has left me a little jaded, a little aloof from the heat of fandom. However, there are a few writers who turn me into your basic fanboy. Stephen King, of course. The incomparable Joe Lansdale. And Alabama's own Robert R. McCammon, who has written books that can stand up to the best the genre has to offer. I've been a fan of his since the beginning of his career, and you can check out my reviews of Usher's Passing, The Night Boat, They Thirst and Mystery Walk on this site to see how I feel. It's been nearly twenty years since McCammon published a novel set in contemporary times, but the wait is almost over. His new novel The Five will be published in May or June and can be pre-ordered now at Amazon. This is a momentous occasion, and if you are a McCammon fan, you should plan on getting this one. If you are not a McCammon fan...you should be.
