  1. I love it when i see established authors go digital. There is just something in me that screams yay…progress! I love the feel of a print book in hand and nothing will ever replace that feeling, but there is something about digital that just screams “future” to me.


  2. I love McCammon, particularly The Wolf’s Hour and Gone South. I don’t have money to spare right now, but it’s good to see that his backlist is available–if and when I have discretionary income again, I’ll get them.


  3. I like McCammon (esp. Boy’s Life and Gone South) and I read this when it first came out years ago. I wasn’t able to get into it. Not sure why because I thought the setting was interesting. Are the other books in the series better? I haven’t tried them.
