    Having only read Crouch's Pines trilogy and really liking it, I look forward to having a reason to read more from him.

    This. And, I can verify that that is indeed BP owner Tom Montelone's eBay listing. This... seems like bad news to me. Hopefully not, but..

    AND if this is someone very close to BP, then it makes even more sense that the seller would include a plug for the BP newsletter. Very interesting.

    The remaining 7 titles in Series III will be published every 2 or 3 months by Borderlands Press. You can get on their mailing list to keep track of each new book which will include titles by Ramsey Campbell, Owen King, Robert R. McCammon, Blake Crouch, and others.

    And here's the link (super low starting bid!):
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/LITTLE-BOOK....c100010.m2109

    Does this individual have reliable information?? Should the list be updated?

    I was just reading through some old correspondence and Borderlands did mention Robert McCammon in their newsletter from June 2019. Copied and pasted:

    "Series III is almost completely sold out. Itís not too late to subscribe to the entire series of great Little Books with some upcoming writers such as Ramsey Campbell, Robert R. McCammon, Caitlyn Kiernan, and others to be announced. To set up your subscription, Contact us at info@borderlandspress.com."

    Straub is hit and miss for me. When hits he is as good as it gets, Lost Boy Lost Girl is an example of that. When he misses is can be about as bad as it gets, example Mr. X. Not sure about this one yet. I will need to see more details and if it is made available from other sellers.
