    He's not a household name because he's too damned good, that's why. Just look at the general popular culture and you'll see that more formulaic the movie/song is, in general, more popular it is. This applies to Gene Wolfe, Matheson, Bradbury, PKD, Ellison and countless others. All literary giants whose movie adaptations a lot of people have seen without even realizing it.

    I've posted these in my collection thread, but thought people would enjoy seeing them here, too.

    I'd The lettered, numbered, and trade editions of The Listener by Robert McCammon, from Cemetery Dance:









    The editions all have very similar dustjackets, but differ in cover material, endpapers, frontispiece and paper quality.

    I was expecting something ... well, more, for the lettered considering it's the magical 52-letter alphabet and a $500 price tag.

    I bought it secondary market and agree that this is not a $500 book. I hope they don't do a similar treatment to Cardinal Black for everyone with interest in that series. Sub Press' productions were quite pretty from traycase to book to endpapers.

    The Listener, Cardinal Black, and Usher's Passing will all be very different from each other.

    The Listener, by design, was meant to be "clean" and "simple" to keep the focus on McCammon's terrific writing and story.

    Cardinal Black, by design, will be keeping many of the "expected" features of a book in a continuing series -- at least where we're allowed to do so.

    Usher's Passing will be its own production, different from the other two books.

    Thanks for replying, Brian. I'm very much looking forward to seeing what CD will do with these two future editions.

    Will McCammon be signing copies of "Cardinal Black" at the Alabama Booksmith? I didn't see anything yet on their list of upcoming events.

    Yes he will. I'm waiting for that to be available as well, but it'll be closer to publication date.

    As Matt said, there are plans for a signing at Alabama Booksmith. The publication date for the book appears to be January 29, 2019 (I don't think CD has announced that yet, but that's what Amazon shows), so I expect the signing to happen around then. I think this time that it may be on a Saturday---I suggested it, and it looks likely---and I hope that it includes a reading and/or Q&A, as well. I'll post here whenever the date is formally nailed down.

    Not formally announced, we're still checking a few things off the production checklist to be absolutely sure, but it looks pretty locked in as of right now!

    The cover of Cardinal Black looks fantastic. Sort of breaking with the series covers, but I like it.

    I need to be in Alabama for work this winter so am going to try hard to make the timing work. Will be my second trip there for a signing. First time i had a bag full of items and Rick graciously inscribed everything. This time will have a smaller haul! Was super to meet him in person.

    The final page count for CARDINAL BLACK is 464 pages, just in case anyone was curious.
