Reading time has been consistent, however Covid layoff for my wife here in Windsor, Ontario has really hurt - she's been off since March and still not back, so hence my collecting and book buying have suffered.

    Looked at my outstanding orders and thank you for the updates on Graveside Manner 1 & 2, but want to get updates on the following that I show are still open:

    X_CDCC6 - not sure what book this is to be
    Four Halloween's 2
    Shivers VIII
    Wow, Jamie! It has been a minute. Sorry to hear about your wife's employment. Like so many of us, I'm sure you're ready to put this year behind you.

      Everything is now ready for the printer, so it's just a matter of Richard getting this one into the printing queue. We still have a printing backlog, unfortunately, from having our two major printers go out of business without warning while we were trying to print Sleeping Beauties, but we're making progress on the list. Thank you for asking!

          I'm guessing here (haven't really been involved with that project), but the trade got pushed back until March 2021 and I think the plan had been to publish them at the same time. So I'm under the assumption that we have to wait for our editions until the trade. Just guessing though, Brian might know better.

            Any news yet on when we can expect the remaining books in the 2018 Forthcoming Grab Bag to be announced/published? I believe only one has been announced so far: the John Saul book. Any info on this grab bag will be appreciated as it has been awhile since we've received any updates.

              These are all stuck in the current log jam from covid and what not. I think we're just waiting to announce the remaining titles at this point until we can get them to the printer.

                Any news on the printing status of either "Turn Down the Lights" or "We're All in This Together"? I ordered these books on 02/14/2014 and 06/05/2015. The Production Updates page has said the two titles will either be sent to the printer "as soon as possible" or "later this year" for almost two years. Any news would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

                  Yeah, we definitely need a better update for those. Those two are ready for the printer, but we lost nearly a year of production time when the two printers went out of business while working on SLEEPING BEAUTIES. So, for a fairly long period of time there, we only had our "small" printer available and they cannot do Lettered Editions or anything fancy.

                  We have a new "big" printer now -- they just finished NIGHT SHIFT for us this summer -- but the problem we're working through is this: the books that were "printer ready" around the time the SLEEPING BEAUTIES situation occurred, and the books that reached the "printer ready" stage while we searching for new printers, have collided with the books that have reached the "printer ready" stage since then.

                  Even if our new big printer could take ALL of the ready books at the same time (which they cannot, especially with all of the time they lost this year to COVID-19 related shut downs and decreased production at their facility due to reduced staffing), we're not equipped to handle that many books coming back into the warehouse at the same time.

                  So, right now we're staggering old books and new books (that have time related contractual obligations) into production at the printer.

                  Dan and I aren't in the loop about how and why specific old titles are selected when there's an opening at the printer, but I'm hoping to be able to give much firmer updates for ALL titles in January 2021, once we get through the usual holiday insanity.

                  VERY sorry about the wait on these, and we really appreciate your patience!

                    To add to what Brian said. Production times are really slow across the board right now at the printers. For Example a project we started at the begining of September isn't estimated to be finished at the printer until sometime in January. This is a project who's turnaround time pre-covid would have been less than 2 months.

                      Gotta ask: what's shipping?? I haven't gotten a shipping notice, but my Informed Delivery says I'm getting a package from Forest Hill, MD.

                        I have a CDCC10 Chapbook and a mystery package coming from CD. The mystery package may be a Freeman Patreon shipment as they sometimes come via CD without shipping notice.

                          Ah ok, then it's my chapbook. Is it a catalog allowing me to order chaps? Is it that kind of chapbook?

                            Here is the original announcement:
                            An Exclusive Brand New Richard Chizmar Signed Limited Edition Chapbook!

                            So, it is by Richard Chizmar, it is signed and it is not used. However Amazon has you covered: https://www.amazon.com/Tough-Western...NsaWNrPXRydWU= (or uncovered depending on the view)

                              Not that you did, but I always find it funny when people say buttless chaps . . . because they're buttless pants, that's what makes the chaps. Just like saying sleeveless vests . . .

                                I have a couple questions . Wondering when the Second SK grab bag is shipping and also I’ve noticed that the last few shipments have been packed with brown paper instead of packing peanuts. Just curious if this is for environmental reasons or has COVID brought a shortage of packing peanuts . I ask because some othe publishers are doing the same and some are still using the peanuts. Packing is still great so it’s more of a curiosity thing then anything else
