    Good call! Yeah he didn't believe me that the villain in Duma Key should be a pirate witch painting--he wanted to make it a factory worker at a cereal plant set in rural Ohio for no damn reason.
    It did not say that on the package but I may have that for lunch, minus the frying part of the program.

    It's my understanding that Mr. Malerman's work load is overwhelming. What with the follow-up to Bird Box and all. It's such that he's allowed a certain ghost writer to meet his contractual demands. That ghost writer is none other than Bentley Little. It's my contention that if you dislike the Malerman entry into this anthology, then you must blame Bentley Litle.

    Called it!!

    Jeff, did you order this title? Assuming it was because of the Bentley ghost writing??

    If that is the case then I am sure I will like it. Actually about 15 pages in and I am intrigued. It is always interesting to move from short stories to a novella. Short stories have a tendency to go straight for the jugular as a novella will have a slower burn.

    So to continue my rambling commentary on the reading of this book. Life has gotten in the way of my reading lately but I have only Mr. Malermanís novella left to read. Unless that is a total stinker this will rate as one of my favorite anthologies. Some stories are better than others but there has not been a bad read. More weird tales than horror in general but a very fun ride. If Malerman ruins it for me I will directly and forever blame One person. Mr Terry I am looking at you. I am going to miss this one when I finish it.

    Thank you again Mr. Freeman for pulling together such unique and complementary stories. On a side note, I know Billy Chizmar is still in school and has a way to go before he settles into a career but I for one hope he keeps writing. I loved Mr Bonesí Wild Ride.
