SWAN SONG and Stephen King's Misery tied for the 1987 Bram Stoker Award. Incredibly, three decades ago, Robert McCammon created the epic post-apocalyptic novel of the afterwards of a nuclear battle between Russia and the United States. The conflict followed an Afghanistan war and exposed issues in Kabul and Pakistan. When life on the planet is changed forever, the story explores humanity's struggle to return to civilization.

ROBERT MCCAMMON (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is a Homeboy who has launched every title at the store since coming out of retirement in 2002. Like his fans around the world, we are thrilled that this New York Times best seller is again writing in his unique style that ultimately allows good to triumph over evil. He is best known for Boy's Life that is required reading in three out of every four high schools in America. Our staff is hooked on his Matthew Corbett series that we believe showcases the most exciting sleuth in fiction since Sherlock Holmes. Thank you Robert McCammon for signing our books.
