Table of Contents: BLUE WORLD by Robert McCammon

Blue-World-largeSubterranean Press has posted the table of contents for the upcoming newly-expanded collection Blue World by Robert McCammon.

Here’s the book description:

In this expanded edition of Robert McCammon’s classic short story collection, you will encounter horrors and delights in equal measure, including:

  • A man who awakens one morning to find a skeleton in bed where his wife had been the night before.
  • A small-time thief who steals a makeup case, and learns a dead horror star’s secret.
  • A roadside diner, where a Vietnam veteran comes seeking shelter from the storm.
  • A young man in prison, who finds beauty and hope on the wings of a yellow bird.
  • Halloween in a very special residential area, where trick-or-treating is deadly serious.
  • A red house on a street of gray houses, and a breath of sweet fire.
  • The adventures of a has-been serial hero, who dons his old costume and goes in search of a serial killer.
  • A priest obsessed by a porno star, and his realization that both of them are being stalked by a third shadow.
  • An old woman who channels early, simpler times in a melancholy Bradburyesque future.

We will see worlds within worlds through the windows of these stories. We might even see the end of the world, and we might sit on a front porch for a while and sip a glass of gasoline on a hot December day.

  1. “Night Calls The Green Falcon” is one of my favorite stories. Back when I was trying to sell screenplays in the early 90’s, I had a short list of works I wanted to try to option and adapt for the screen if I ever got to a point successful enough. “NCTGF” was one. (Zelazny’s “The Furies” was another.)
