The fall 2022 new-release wealth continues — with a double dose, even.

Cormac McCarthy will release intertwined novels The Passenger and Stella Maris on October 25 and November 22, respectively, with a box set of the two coming out in December.

The New York Times reports that McCarthy dropped hints about the novels back in 2009 and 2015, and that eight years ago, he turned in the full draft of Stella Maris to his publisher (along with a partial draft of The Passenger).

The Passenger is the story of Bobby Western, a salvage diver whose assignment to explore the wreckage of a sunken jet quickly escalates, internally and externally.

Stella Maris follows Bobby’s sister, Alicia, and is written solely as the transcript of dialogue between Alicia and her doctor at a psychiatric institution.

McCarthy — the famous and famously reclusive author of Blood MeridianAll the Pretty HorsesThe Road, and No Country for Old Men declined to be interviewed.
