    With a little help- - I was able to secure a copy. I really look forward to it- mostly on your good words about it here!

    Excellent! Thanks, Brian. Since you're here- what book are you announcing Monday?

    Sometimes people cancel orders. There is always hope.

    Glad to read the positive review. I’m in on the limited and am now regretting not jumping on the lettered. Looking forward to reading this one!

    So the Malerman novella was a great ending to a great collection. This was a five star read for me and I am glad I will have the limited on my shelf in the future. If some of the lettered were to come available I may even have to consider it. Big thanks to Brian for putting this together! For me this is up there with 999 in collections and that is high praise!
    Wow! That is fantastic. I'm really glad I jumped on this.

    By the end I no longer had that feel. That is probably another thing that brings 999 to mind. There really is a variety of story types. Early on I really had a Weird Tales vibe. The Malerman novella is pure horror. For me this book checked all the boxes. I am also really impressed that Brian was able to pull such a diverse and original group of tales that all had some sort of circus theme.

    I was really hoping to like more of this one than I disliked and I ended up liking every page I read.

    I also agree 999 is a true classic so I do not give the comparison lightly.
    Got it. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Thank You. I know a trade is at least a year away, if it happens. Any plans for an audio version? I would be on that in a heartbeat! Having these takes to listen to while I am driving would be beyond fantastic.
