    Yeah, but why don't you tell us what you really feel? LOL. This is the reaction that's held me at bay for buying the book.

    By the way, I finally clicked on the link to your blog and really enjoyed your review on CAPTAIN MARVEL. I agree on a lot of what you wrote. You also got me wanting to track down that omnibus to EX MACHINA!


    So YOU are the one that went to my blog, lol! Thanks for looking...for awhile I was consumed with writing reviews of books and movies and comics, and then one day I just...couldn't be bothered. I wish I still had the time and the desire to do it. As I inch closer to death with each day, I just want to read all of the backlog of books that I have, and keep my comments to myself. Unless I really hate something, like the Tremblay book. Which I believe is reviewed somewhere on the blog. And yes, you should read EX MACHINA, it was a blast!

    That book was one of the worst pieces of shit that I have ever read. I reviewed it on Goodreads, and I have around three hundred comments agreeing with me, so I don't feel like I'm alone in that assessment, lol.

    Will post a review for sure once I get around to reading it. I'm tempering my expectations for sure!

    Thanks for the review on the slipcases! I really, really wanted to get in on these, but it seems like every publisher is pushing out titles as the year comes to an end and you can't have it all, right?

    I feel like they turned out pretty well. They seem very sturdy. Feels exactly like/reminds me of the type of slipcases that CD uses. They do have some extra space so that you can add a mylar cover to the books, which is perfect for me. For those who don't add covers, they may not enjoy that extra space. Overall, I'm glad to have picked them up. Will be interested to see if Paul does it with any of his other books. Since he's still doing the Tremblay books, I could see them getting the slipcase treatment.

    Just received my copy of Don't Fear the Reaper, as well as the optional slipcases for both this one and My Heart Is A Chainsaw.  This Stephen Graham Jones SST set is coming along nicely!!!

    I am very happy that we're getting a new limited of Cold In July. I haven't read the book yet, but I'm excited to do so. And it sounds like we'll be getting more older Lansdale titles from SST moving forward. I am with joejets in that I want me a full set of Hap and Leonard books, thank you very much.

    I will also say that if anyone has not seen the movie version of Cold in July, I highly recommend it. I can't say how it compares to the book, but I will say that it feels like Lansdale, through and through. Such a good movie. Looking forward to reading the book!

    I am hoping this becomes a full set of Hap and Leonard books that match.

    Yeah, the slipcases were unexpected; so, they did throw my book budget off a bit this month; however, I felt like I couldn't pass since I have Reaper on pre-order (and own the other title). With the free shipping, I figured there will never be a better time to pick them up, especially as Paul is only doing enough for about half the run. I'm really hoping Paul will consider doing more slipcases in the future, at least for his other SGJ books. In terms of the newsletter, I'm really torn. I do love the title very much, but I feel like this is one of the rare instances where I would be just as happy with my trade copy, especially as the main selling point, to me, for the new one is the art as there isn't any bonus features or extra content listed in the description. I also love the artwork for the Ziesing 1st edition that I already own. What has me torn is that I will probably want other books in this classic series and am hoping that passing on this one won't block a future purchase for some of the others; also, the completist in me thinks a full uniform LE set would be very cool. Not sure where I will end up on this...
