Robert R. McCammon is an American author that made a name for himself by writing groundbreaking horror back in the 1970s and 1980s. The Son of Jack and Barbara Bundy, Robert’s parents’ marriage failed fairly early on, with the author spending most of his childhood with his grandparents. A graduate of the University of Alabama from where he received his journalism degree in 1974, Robert R. McCammon’s southern roots have always played a surprisingly scarce role in his books.

The author does include a myriad of references to his Southern heritage in his books, though only someone from Birmingham, Alabama will appreciate them. Robert’s first true work of fiction was an ambitious novel based on a biblical story he titled Baal. Released in 1978, the author wrote it after spending some time producing advertising copy for companies in the south and growing frustrated that he couldn’t get his short stories into print.

The author’s second book never saw the light of day, at least not immediately, primarily because The Night Boat, released in 1980, was too similar to the story of a film that had only recently come out.

Robert R. McCammon writes a blend of suspense thrillers and horror. The author’s books are always pitting the limited good against limitless evil, and he has been known to experiment with black humor.

Robert left the publishing arena and even quit writing in 1992 after growing disillusioned with the state of the publishing industry at the time. Besides his clash with his publisher and editor over the direction of a historical novel he was developing, Robert was also driven to flee from writing as a result of his battle with depression.

He eventually took up the pen once more in the early 2000s.

Robert R. McCammon has a daughter with Sally Sanders to whom he was previously married.

Robert R. McCammon Awards

Robert has enjoyed a lot of recognition over the years as a result of his commitment to publishing, this including nominations for prizes like Bram Stoker and World Fantasy Awards. The author has also won the Alabama Library Association Alabama Author Prize.

Robert R. McCammon Books into Movies/TV

Back in 1981, Robert had the pleasure of seeing his novel Makeup become a Television movie by the names of Darkroom. Additionally, the book Nightcrawlers was used in an episode of the Twilight Zone in 1985. That particular episode is considered to be one of the best the show has ever produced.

Best Robert R. McCammon Books

It took Robert a while to find his rhythm, and he has admitted that his first few books were a little rough; however, the author has since built a solid fanbase, with some of the best books from the author including:

Speaks the Nightbird: It’s 1699 and the people of Fount Royal are out for blood. After suffering a litany of tragedies, the people accuse Rachel Howard of witchcraft, calling for the beautiful widow to be tried and executed.

Mathew Corbett is just a young clerk working for Isaac Woodward, the magistrate that has been charged with trying Rachel. Mathew doesn’t believe the accusations coming Rachel’s way.

Even in the face of damning testimony, Mathew will stop at nothing to keep the woman he has come to love from her death sentence. Mathew doesn’t realize that his determination will soon bring him into a confrontation with a true face of evil.

Robert R. McCammon wrote this book after going on a writing hiatus for ten years. The historical novel follows the exploits of a young clerk that comes to a struggling town to try a case of witchcraft.

An orphan, Mathew knows that the citizens of the small town are calling for a quick execution. But he doubts their assertions, which is why he begins using his quick wits to investigate their claims. What he discovers is an elaborate plot that puts his life in jeopardy.

The Queen of Bedlam: A respected doctor was slashed with a blade on the streets of a busy city, and now the people are rippling with fear. The local printmaster doesn’t help the situation when he chooses to call the doctor’s murderer the Masker.

When another victim is claimed, Mathew Corbett is forced to go on the hunt, using forensic clues and his natural penchant for detective work to find the fiend terrorizing the city.

If Mathew wants to solve the case, he must visit the Queen of Bedlam and unlock her secrets.
