    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.

      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.

          Saw sneak peak of the lettered endpapers. Insane!

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.

              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!

                That image is rather epic.

                  Brian, I'd LOVE a copy! I asked Mindy for one, but then realized I didn't have the cash. Then coronavirus broke out and I'm stuck at home. I emailed her again, but no luck. I'm screwed. I so badly want a copy. Is there no hope for more copies?

                    Sometimes people cancel orders. There is always hope.

                      This is of course a terrible time to ask this question right now, but- where is/was this in the publication queue? Seemed like it was imminent..? But, that was then..

                        Already at the printer, and specifically the printer that has deemed their business to be essential to their state. So... still rolling for now!

                            I hope you are able to get a copy. It is a great read and I hope anyone who wants a copy can get their hands on one.
