    I LOVED his short story in Hark! The Herald Angels Scream! It was so funny and dark. I also read Pressure and I didn't like it. The humor was gone and the characters weren't developed enough. I didn't get pulled in even though the beginning was fantastic. But I bought the Jeff Strand collection in the CD Select Series (which is not released yet). And if I had the rosy employment outlook from two months ago, I'd hunt down the Wolf Hunt series. I definitely want to read more Strand.


    Psst, Dan and BJF, can you make Cold Dead Hands one of the books in either the Book Club I bought into in 2016 or the Forthcoming Grab bag I bought into in 2018?? That would be sweeeeet.

I am about half way through Cold Dead Hands and am absolutely loving it. Looked at the CD website to see if there were still copies of the Signed edition available. It appears that this one has not yet been released. This is my first Jeff Strand read, based on the first half of the book it will not be my last.

    I'm currently about halfway through The Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo. While technically one of my wife's books, it sounded interesting to me. So far it's going good. First time I've read this author.

    Even though I don't usually plan my next read, I have flagged S. Craig Zahler's debut - A Congregation of Jackals - as my next read. I was so impressed with his first two films, and when I discovered he was also an author, I ordered this one. Western Horror - sounds interesting.

    Eh, this one wasn't my favorite vintage reprint by Centipede (and Valancourt did a tpb edition as well). It had some good qualities and I can understand why both publishers felt it deserved revisiting by modern readers, but ultimately it just felt like it missed the mark on several levels...like it wasn't quite as good as it could've/should've been. I'd need to ruminate a bit more (just finished it late last night) to figure out where exactly it fell short, but that's the general feeling I came away with.

    My next read is another Centipede HC...the new Steve Tem collection, THE NIGHT DOCTOR AND OTHER TALES.
