    Someone commented on my video that it was from Christine, which is what I thought as well. But I was thrown off by the NOTHING on the pin card and no mention in the box description.

    No, I haven't. I'm not big on the trinket stuff so I'll probably do what you suggest and see what it actually contains. I doubt there will be a book as well.

    Well, you sign up for a month-to-month subscription and then just cancel after you get it. OR sometimes they'll put past month boxes for sale in the store and you can just buy one there.
    Thank you, Sir!

    Thanks, I hope I enjoy it as well. I have read about half of the last issue. I like what I have read. I used to read it on a more regular basis a few years ago. More fantasy then horror but a good mix of both along with interviews and more. Alex also publishes books. In fact a couple of months the ago I believe there was one in one of the boxes.

    I was very pleased with the books. I missed out on Haven and am looking forward to reading it. Also the short story collection Eternal Frankenstein looks really interesting. The shirt is one of my favorite ones they have done. I love it almost as much as I loved the book. One of the best vampire stories ever written in my opinion. I also thought it was really cool to get another issue of Apex magazine.

    They do not mention it in the contents.

    The post cards are cool but I could not care less about the books!

    Another issue of Apex magazine:

    I have not even looked at the last one. I need to check them out.

    Paperback copy of Have by Tom Deady:

    My view on this one is not as strong as Jeffingoffs (If you don't know what I mean, watch his unboxing video) but I too have the signed limited and was less than overwhelmed by the story. Another copy was not needed. In a year I have only received two books that gave me the response of, they did not need to include that one. This one and Peter Straub's Pork Pie Hat, so that is not bad since I have received about 26 books from them.

    The new release looks pretty cool.
    Eternal Frankenstein:

    Got signed copy. Not sure by who, will try to figure that out at a later time.
