However, Paul publishes a LOT of books, so the sheer volume you may end up wanting to acquire is overwhelming.
    Yeah, the volume was the first thing I noticed. Then I did a little digging and I'm not sure their stuff fits my taste. I don't bend to the extreme end of horror. Though I did preorder the lettered edition of Off Season, I don't normally like work that critics can label torture porn. It's not that I won't read something grisly, it just has to have a point, some development. It's tough because I'm sure I'd like some of these works. I'm afraid of spending limited edition money on gore for gore's sake.

    I'm sort of the same. Though I don't think all of Thunderstorm's books fall into that category. For example I wouldn't call Ronald Kelly, or at least the novel of his I read, "torture porn" or even overtly graphic. That said they don't tend to have a lot of authors I really follow. But man... they do now how to make a great book for a fair price.

    That's good to know. There was one book grabbed my attention--called "The Unhinged"by David Bernstein and I thought the premise was interesting. Then I read reviews on Amazon and one review in particular turned me off. But other reviews mentioned other books that fit the same category and a lot of those authors are also on Thunderstorm as well. Like Ryan C. Thomas. So I fell down a rabbit hole. I still have an open mind so it's not out of consideration. I just don't want to fill my open mind with a pitcher of brain poison.
