    More from 'The Night Country'. The photos do not do this book justice:

          This is a beautiful book and I love the capped slipcases. However, this one is too tight. After opening it about four times there is visible wear. I will be avoiding opening this case.

              Congrats, Martin, on one heckuva nice batch of new arrivals. My immediate takeaways:

              I really screwed up by not (yet) getting O'Nan's THE NIGHT COUNTRY. I really like O'Nan's work (but had tried THE NIGHT COUNTRY before and didn't really like the "greek chorus" aspect of it, but need to give it another shot) and that production by Lividian is fantastic.

              I similarly screwed up on not getting the Joe Hill. I had the signed/numbered UK HC, so figured that was good enough, and, as well, listened too much to the criticism on the odd size dimensions of the Sub Press edition. But the art is incredible, and I've really grown to like its odd, charmingly different sizing.

                  While I concur that The Night Country is not in my favorite O'Nan titles I will support any small press that publishes his work. I consider him such an underrated author. I am currently re-reading 'The Names of the Dead'.

                  I absolutely what Sub Press did with Full Throttle and am really glad to have been able to add the ARC.

                      I wouldn't say Billy Summers is completely supernatural free. Readers will stumble across an old, familiar place......

                        The actual events like the picture moving are so few I don't consider them significant but I get your point. The stories large nod to The Shining has been widely discussed. There is also a brief nod to The Stand.
