    I’ve eyed multiple Tartarus books but I’ve never pulled the trigger on any of them. Temptation is now strong…

    I have seen many Tartarus books on the web but have never purchased one.

Love it.
    My perception of UK books is based on the work of PS. I am not sure if that is fair. I received Horrorstor yesterday and it is very nice. May be a while before I get to reading it.

    I have a copy of BIRD BOX on order...yes, I'm giving Malerman another chance. He seems to be one of those authors who many seem to love but my four experiences have been disappointing...save for one, A HOUSE AT THE BOTTOM OF A LAKE, which, other than the ending, I thought was quite good. Good enough to try BIRD BOX again, a DNF the first time I tried. But I did generally like the movie, so thought perhaps it was just one of those wrong-book-at-the-wrong-time kind of things, and I'm confident that the SST treatment will be attractive, so threw caution to the wind.

    Speaking of BIRD BOX, can I say (to no one's surprise who has dealt with him) that Paul's customer service is top-notch? I wanted a few days ago to add another SST title to my BIRD BOX order, sneak it in the box that I knew would be leaving soon so as to save on postage, and Paul made the process as easy as could be. My order hadn't left yet, so am looking forward to a two-book SST order coming my way soon.

    SST is filling a niche that has been all but missing in recent years: limited editions with a moderate print runs and prices to match.

    Makes sense about the bundle sales. I'm get the vast majority of my SST books through Camelot, including BIRD BOX. I kinda regret not getting the Malerman bundle as it was a good deal. I went back and forth too long on it and it sold out. I did order the Hendrix bundle through SST and I ordered WESTLAKE SOUL directly through them. While their books are not as flashy as, say, Suntup or Centipede's higher price point titles, for their very reasonable price there is a lot of bang for one's buck.
