Kenneth McKinley | 36 comments Is anyone interested in doing the Robert McCammon Challenge? It's where we read one McCammon book a month in chronological order starting with Baal by Robert R. McCammon Baal.

Darlene | 1 comments That sounds good to me although I just started The Listener so I might be going in the reverse.

That's not a problem. Many of these will be re-reads for me. I think it will be fun to go through and read some of these old classics and see how much McCammon grew as a writer. In my opinion, McCammon, unlike King, has gotten better as he's aged and I really don't think he has a clunker in his whole catalog.


Cody | CodysBookshelf (codylovesbooks) | 2 comments many titles — Baal, Bethany’s Sin, The Night Boat, The Wolf’s Hour, among others — I’ve never read.

I've re-read some of these 3-4 times, but am always up for McCammon. Won't be able to join in for a while yet, but I'll jump in at some point. :)

Algernon (Darth Anyan) | 17 comments I would love to participate, but I'm not sure I'm up for one book each month. Why not start on a smaller scale and try to read the Matthew Corbett books every other month?

Nickronomicon Please add me as well, I would love to join in this. I've read several of his novels and have a few others on my bookshelf. I wish I would have discovered him when I was younger and some of these were first coming out!
