VJ Books is now accepting pre-orders of Mister Slaughter in a striking limited edition (274 copies), signed by Robert McCammon, fully bound in leather and housed in a custom slipcase.


Mister Slaughter is at once a classic portrait of an archetypal serial killer and an exquisitely detailed account of a fledgling nation still in the process of inventing itself. Suspenseful, illuminating, never less than compulsively readable, it is, by any measure, an extraordinary achievement, the largest accomplishment to date from one of our most gifted—and necessary—writers.


“Murder and ghoulish mayhem are the order of the day in bestseller McCammon’s colorful third thriller featuring problem-solver Matthew Corbett and his escapades in early 18th-century America” – Publisher’s Weekly.


The Library Journal says of Mister Slaughter “Fans of dark historicals will enjoy this thrill ride, but they should be ready for some heavy-handed violence with a balance of historical context and intrigue.”


Robert McCammon received the 2008 Grand Master Award from the World Horror Convention on March 29, 2008.


The publisher, Subterranean Press, has already put the first edition trade hardcover out of print.  John Hutchinson, co-founder of VJ Books, said that he expects the limited edition to sell out quickly from his website, www.vjbooks.com.
