    My favorite is They Thirst. Think it would make a great movie if the cast was right!

    I’ve been re-reading SWAN SONG since it came out! When I feel like reading a great book, to my bookcase and McCammon I head. STINGER, another fine creepy novel, has kept me entertained for decades. As I’ve been forced to downsize, I’ve kept all my McCammon, Heinlein, King, and many Koontz paperbacks. Hard to find them all in eBook format, sadly. My beloved and worn books work fine for my needs.

    Hope to read other of Robert R. McCammon’s books now and in the future.

    I love all books by Robert McCammon but the one I read each and every year, as do a lot of his fans is Boy’s Life. There are so many life lessons to be found in this book. I’m 62, been reading it annually since it was released & it never fails to teach me something new. Also if you go to his website, you’ll find some free short reads and info about his upcoming releases. He’s a very friendly author, funny and personable.

    Read Swan Song a long time ago and re-bought it for my daughter at Christmas. Was there ever a sequel to it???

      I don’t know, but if you have not read the Matthew Corbett series–run today to buy them.


      • Not1knowsme: 2 years ago

        I agree with you 1000 percent. I listen to them on Audio due to vision problems and the narrator is spot on. Recently it was announced there will be a total of 9 in the series. Looking forward to see how this turns out.
