Lividian Publications is thrilled to announce we will be publishing multiple volumes of Robert McCammon’s highly acclaimed Matthew Corbett series this year, including a brand new novel in hardcover and five previous titles in trade paperback for the first time anywhere in the world! You can reserve ALL of these books today with NO prepayment required, and we’ll contact you via email for payment closer to the publication date. Read on for details!
** Brand New Matthew Corbett Novel to be Published as a Signed, Numbered, and Slipcased Limited Edition! 736 Pages! **
First up will be a deluxe signed, numbered, and slipcased Limited Edition hardcover of The King of Shadows by Robert McCammon, the eighth volume in his acclaimed Matthew Corbett series.
This absolutely massive special edition tips the scales at a whopping 736 pages and has been lavishly crafted with collectors and readers alike in mind. Vincent Chong provided stunning color artwork for the dust jacket and ten black and white illustrations for the interior.
This special edition started rolling at the printer last fall and will be published in June 2022, approximately six months before the trade hardcover.
PREORDERS ARE BEING ACCEPTED NOW, and no prepayment is required to reserve your copy. (If you own the Cardinal Black Limited Edition or Lettered Edition, please see the notes on the The King of Shadows product page about matching numbers and letters.)
** Five Matthew Corbett Novels to be Published in Trade Paperback for the First Time Anywhere in the World! **
Lividian Publications is also thrilled to announce we’ll be publishing five previous titles in the Matthew Corbett series as trade paperbacks, the first time they’ve appeared in this format anywhere in the world. Starting with Mister Slaughter in July and finishing with Cardinal Black in November, these will be published at the perfect time to get readers fully up to speed before the trade hardcover publication of Robert McCammon’s newest installment, The King of Shadows, in December.
Do You Want First Printings Including One Signed By Robert McCammon?
Due to the shortage of book paper in the world, there will be a limited run of the offset printed true first printings of these trade paperbacks, and most of the chain bookstore orders and distributor orders will be filled via POD to ensure we can keep up with demand and no reader misses out.
For collectors who want first printings (and fans who want to read them as soon as possible), we’re offering a bundle of all five books, to be shipped together this summer, that are guaranteed to be from the First Printing offset run and will be marked as such on their copyright pages. These five books will ship together, and four of them will be shipping before their official publication dates.
In addition, Robert McCammon has generously agreed to sign signature sheets for one of the books in the bundle!
Please place your order via the bundle product page if you’re interested. Supplies are limited and that page will be changed to “Out of Print” when all available sets are reserved. Copies ordered individually through this site or big online retailers like Amazon, etc, will not be signed and might be print on demand copies.
