Robert R. McCammon
choose this author because he writes horror. I've read one book of his
and have one on my bookshelf to read. He was recommended to me by a
friend who likes horror novels, such as the likes of Stephen King and
Peter Straub. Apparently, in the 80s, these 3 authors, and Dean Koontz,
were very popular. Somehow, though, McCammon was kind of forgotten. I
had never heard of him, but then again, I was just a little kid in the
80s. I only know King because he still writes and he's probably the most
popular horror author there is. Koontz still writes as well. And I only
know Straub because his name is on the spine of The Talisman, which he
coauthored with King.
I read The Wolf's Hour.
was about a spy in Nazi Germany who was also a werewolf. Very
adventure-ish and detailed. I enjoyed it and definitely recommend it to
others, especially lovers of Stephen King.
