Dust jacket and interior illustrations by Les Edwards
First published as a paperback original in 1988, Stinger
remains one of Robert McCammon’s wildest, most compelling creations.
Both a furiously paced action novel and an affectionate tribute to the

Inferno, Texas. Inferno is a town in trouble, driven to the brink by
racial tension, gang violence, and a collapsing economy. But things can

Filled with a large cast of vividly realized characters and sporting
some of the most memorably horrific imagery you will ever encounter, Stinger
is an adrenaline-fueled narrative of the highest order, its classic,
pulp fictional elements transformed and elevated by a master
storyteller. The result is pure Robert McCammon, an engrossing, hugely
enjoyable experience that is sure to stay with you for a very long time
