Subterranean Press is to publish a series of all new adventures, including several novelettes and novellas, set both pre- and post- Robert McCammon's classic novel, The Wolf's Hour.
'The Hunter from the Woods marks the much-anticipated return of Michael Gallatin, the lycanthropic hero of Robert McCammon's 1989 classic, The Wolf's Hour. These all-new, interlinked stories offer a full measure of McCammon's trademark narrative excitement, and comprise a fascinating composite portrait of a unique fictional creation.
Erotic, visceral, and filled with moments of desolating horror and unexpected warmth, The Hunter from the Woods is a triumph of imaginative storytelling. Like the best of McCammon's earlier work, it offers intelligent, world-class entertainment. In the process, it shines a welcome new light on one of the most uncommon heroes in contemporary fiction.'[...]

Other news from last night's BAFTA: Inception won the Visual Effects Award. The Harry Potter franchise won an award for Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema. Otherwise almost all the other awards went to The King's Speech.
