    I keep hoping there will be another Dinged Grab Bag offer. That is the last grab bag offer I tried and I really liked the books I received.

    Next week and probably running into the days we're open the week after we'll be shipping The Outsider slipcases. Then here's what's on the horizon in not particular order.

    Best of Scream Factory
    Grab Bag Club #3 & #4
    SOD V1 & V2 sets

    There's 4 more books that are either done and shipping to us or will be done and shipping to use in the next 2 weeks or so, but I don't want to list them just yet in case they get delayed or I have to delay their shipping for something else.
    Thanks for the update. No shipping notice for the Grab Bag.

It's intended to extend access to the written word for at-risk readers and those who are critically deprived of new reading material.

    But don't worry, I can help! I'll selflessly buy your copy direct from CD to spare you from being afoul of the law!

    Yeah, I have #73 of Complete Borne. Loved that book. Dig his style. Since reading it I bought Finch from someone in this very forum! Steve! Steve's good people! I haven't read it yet though. A friend of mine actually recommended against The Southern Reach Trilogy. It wasn't her thing. And I get it. VanderMeer's style isn't really for everyone. Reminded me of Jac Jemc--the author of another book I read called THE GRIP OF IT. That was weird and the ending was just sort of pointless, but I loved the prose and the trip. So I'm here for more VanderMeer (and Jemc for that matter).

    Yeah, the BIRD BOX movie is a week and a half away. I'll try to watch it the weekend it debuts, before other people's opinions can threaten to influence mine. I doubt I'll like it as much as the book. But we'll see.
    I completely agree on you with The Grip of It. Fun read that just kind of died at the end.

    I've only read the first book in the Area X trilogy (and watched the movie.) Haven't read anything else. I enjoyed Annihilation (and the movie too even though it wasn't the same as the book at all.)

    And all this talk about Malerman reminds me - isn't Bird Box hitting Netflix soon?

    BTW: loved Malerman's story in HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SCREAM.
