The Best Things In Life | Free Robert McCammon!

No, he's not trapped. 

But here I've been catching up on all the press releases and whatnot that landed in my inbox while I was doing my darnedest to mainline some speculative fiction into the English curriculum, and I see Subterranean Press are offering any and all comers free downloads of The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs, a "thrilling World War II adventure novella" by Robert McCammon of The Five and Swan Song fame, presumably in order to entice whosoever still needs enticing - what's wrong with you people anyway? - into pre-ordering The Hunter from the Woods, which is to say a forthcoming collection of all new adventures in the inestimable company of Michael Gallatin, the lycanthropic hero of McCammon's 1989 classic, The Wolf's Hour.

So. 36,000 free words from a man I'm fast discovering (by way of the above-mentioned books) stands among the utmost masters of the horror genre. For nothing... nowt... nada.

Need I say any more? 

Off you all pop and download this lovely thing, then. The Room at the Bottom of the Stairs is perfectly standalone, as I understand it, and if it's anywhere near as awesome as any of the Robert McCammon I've read, it should see you through the weekend wonderfully.

Did I mention it's on the house? :)

  1. Thanks! I don't tend to read as much horror as I probably ought to, so I certainly don't object at finding a free novella that's so highly recommended!
