Robert R. McCammonThe elusive Robert R. McCammon is one of the most admired living writers of Horror fiction. His output has diminished since he renounced deadlines and the pressures from publishers in 1999. But during his writing career McCammon wrote more than a dozen novels and about as many short stories. Not only an admired writer, he was also in great part responsible for the creation of the Horror Writer’s Association. There are just six commercially audiobooks that we know of that either contain one or more of McCammon’s short stories or abridge one of his novels. Here they are:
