For those who missed the news, Lividian Publications is 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: Mister Slaughter, The Providence Rider, The River of Souls, Freedom of the Mask, and Cardinal Black. Starting with Mister Slaughter in July and finishing with Cardinal Black in November, these are avaialble 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.
Due to the shortage of book paper in the world, there was a limited First Printing of these five trade paperbacks printed in July 2022. For collectors who want first printings and fans who want to read the books as soon as possible, we’re offering a bundle of all five books that is in-stock now and ready to ship together. In addition, Robert McCammon generously agreed to sign signature sheets for one of the books in this bundle!
In addition, Lividian Publications will be publishing the next installment of the Matthew Corbett series, The King of Shadows, as a beautiful trade hardcover in December:
It’s January of 1704, and Matthew Corbett continues his mission to Italy, accompanied by Hudson Greathouse and former enemy Professor Fell. They seek Brazio Valeriani and information about the mirror created by his father, the sorcerer Ciro. Legend claims the mirror can be used to summon demons from beyond.
But fate has other plans for Matthew as their ship is disabled by a pod of whales, and they seek refuge on a secluded island. The islanders welcome them with a massive feast, but all is not what it seems. As the island pulls them deeper into its influence, the castaways struggle to maintain their grip on reality, even their very identity. Matthew must keep his wits about him and solve the mystery enshrouding the other side of the island, where an active volcano looms and a secretive creature lurks.
The King of Shadows is the eighth installment in bestselling author Robert McCammon’s acclaimed series of historical thrillers featuring Matthew Corbett, a brave “problem-solver” who now faces a challenging foe that threatens to take over his most valuable resource: his own mind.
