    Just saw the artwork for the latest book. Love it.

    Per usual I do not like the price point.

    I'd rather go by Grady Hendrix's appraisal: The Auctioneer feels like "If Cormac McCarthy had written Needful Things." By that measure, you'll probably have to buy number 23 from my grandkids.
    I think you will like The Auctioneer. It's a good read. I can see why Grady Hendrix said that. Think about it as if McCarthy and Little had a daughter. The authors success and then tragic death make for an interesting story as well. You wonder what might have been if things were different.

    Totally off-topic, but if you want to see Cormac's voice put to use in the field of comedy, the site 'Yelping with Cormac' is a great way to kill a little bit of time - this is my favorite - https://yelpingwithcormac.tumblr.com...0/dotties-cafe

    I will be buying it. Wendell Minor is a great artist and I have a few books signed by him.

    Actually, I toyed with the idea of picking it up an AGE because of that, but then saw this, and decided I’d just wait for the expanded version:

    “Carberg is currently writing a memoir of his wife, including the mysterious circumstances that led to her writing The Auctioneer.”

    Glad to hear that my Bentley Little vibes were accurate. Should be a good read.

    It is in the vain of Bentley Little,right down to the title. I’m happy with my paperbacks from hell copy.

    That's a very apt description of the tone of the book. It's not quite as surreal and outlandish as Little since the author plays it more staid and straight-forward, but that same sense or a surreal skewing of normality is very much in play.

    Those who like Bentley Little's work will enjoy this book...I have no idea what Jeff will make of it.

    It looks good, but I'm passing. Not enough of a draw with so many other books out there.
