Anyone else familiar with McCammon? fans of IT could do a lot worse than his novel Boy's Life, which I read last summer. For a great evocation of childhood in small town America (plus thriller/horror), I've not read better since I read IT back in 1989.
I just finished Boy's Life a couple of days ago, and now I put it in my top ten (nonSK) books. I already miss the characters.
But on the same day I finished it, I ordered two more of his books, so they're on the way!
Robert McCammon is one of the best wordslingers out there IMO.
He's got a new book coming out in Oct. "Mister Slaughter," it's the third installment of the Matthew Corbett series.
The others are "Speaks the Nightbird," and "The Queen of Bedlam," really killer stuff!
LOL John D, you got it right.
Now where's the Goathunter?
