I finished Stinger over the weekend, It was a library book fortunately and I wanted it so much. I gave it 5 stars and marked it as a favorite. I talked about it in the KBF what are you reading now thread if you want an idea what it's about.

Wolf's Hour is a must read; Charlene will insist on that one.

etc: Oh you said that. Never mind Wolf's Hour.

I'm going to search for your comments about Stinger in the other thread - though I did buy it because you recommended it. I bought Swan Song and Gone South. Not sure about Blue World or Mine. Still looking at those. :)

EDITED: Deleted reference to a book that is NOT McCammon's. I just reported the editor and/or writer of that other book for using review pages to link, like 10 books of his own. *rolls eyes*

Huh? Wow!

I was reading reviews on a McCammon book, and that's where I saw the reviewer who wrote a dinky review and then add links to multiple titles. Bleh.

Anyhoo... more news!!

I bought a couple more, so now I have five for today:

Mystery Walk
Mine
Gone South
Stinger
Swan Song

Am thinking about Usher. Anyone here read that one?

Usher gets so-so reviews. I think I read it, but it was decades ago.
I wish I could help out a little more. I do believe it was somehow related to the Poe story.

I thought Mine kicked butt. I remember that one distinctly, even though I read that one decades ago as well. Mystery Walk was pretty good, I just re-read that 4 or 5 months ago.

Gone South and Stinger I don't remember. But Momma said Stinger was good, so I would trust her opinion.

Oh, if They Thirst is on there, that was a good one-vampires take over LA.

MommaCat says:
Charlene, Stinger was so awesome, I can't begin to tell you. It may be my favorite McM so far. It's worth your time to re-read. It's on my favorites list and it's one I finished with a sigh.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 26, 2012 1:01:34 PM PST
I probably will pick it up when I get home later. I need some time to do a proper browse. : )
Thanks!

I loved Boy's LIfe but do not often read horror. Which other McCammon's are non-horror?

The Wolf's Hour is about a werewolf/spy in WWII. There are some horror elements, like Nazis and WWII. If you like it, there is a follow up book that came out this year called The Hunter from the Woods which fills in some of the gaps from The Wolf's Hour, before Michael Gallatin became a spy.

Mine was definitely horror.

Mystery Walk has a native American character and vibe. I thought it was pretty good-it's not horror, but has some horrific elements.
If I remember correctly, most of the others are horror related, if not outright horror.
Swan Song is a post apocalyptic novel-the apocalypse being caused by nuclear war. Many survivors are left but many are mutated due to the radioactive fallout. This one has some very horrific scenes, but is VERY good. It is similar to The Stand, if you have read that...but different in many ways as well.

They are not on sale today (I don't think) but the Matthew Corbett series (which is McCammon's new(er) historical fiction series) are not horror, but there are some horrific elements. This series starts with Speaks the Nightbird, which I don't believe is yet available for Kindle, but should be soon.

MommaCat says:
Stinger is SF and Speaks the Nightbird is due out in the spring. The Wolf's hour books, though werewolf, aren't horror, per se. Though some might argue that WWII and Nazis qualify as horror. Don't turn your back on those. They are excellent.

Scamp says:
Of course not. Perish the thought.

(Heh heh. I blame Charlene cuz she lured me to try McCammon. But I tried to send her the bill and the envelope haz returned unopened.)

Scamp says:
Do you know anything about the The Darwath Trilogy: The Time of the Dark, The Walls of Air, and The Armies of Daylight. It's on sale, the whole package, for $3.99!

I'm tempted, but I don't have any experience with Hambly, though I have a mystery of hers that I've not read.

OMG, thanks for the link, I just bought it!

Barbara Hambly is a pretty stellar author. The series I love and am familiar with, begins with:
Those Who Hunt the Night

I had never heard of the series you gave a link to, but darn it, if it comes anywhere near the above series, I am pretty excited. Thanks. ;)
