    I just reread my comment and it was pretty unfair to CD saying that it's King's Castle. I know there are lots of other authors here. I guess I'm only looking at the site through the lens of the authors who are "must buys" from me.

    I feel like I missed something with all this talk of McCammon limiteds.

    It was in Richard's update earlier in the year. He outlined what was in the works for CD. Among new projects, two unnamed McCammon limited editions (not new books, he said they were McCammon books that have never appeared "in this format before") as well as a brand new McCammon book called The Listener.

    The way I have looked at it is that the King offerings are what allow CD to introduce me to so many new authors. I still have Haven in my TBR pile so I can't speak of that one. However, CD has introduced me to Ed Gorman, Ray Garton, Douglas Clegg, Simon Clark, Kealan Patrick Burke and many others not to mention Brian James Freeman and Richard Chizmar. These are all authors I look forward to new releases from that I may not be aware of without Cemetery Dance.

    Ah, now I remember. Thanks!

    There's just too much going on in the small press limited arena nowadays, it's hard to keep up!

    Very very true! It's not the offerings here that are limited--it's my awareness and familiarity. Which is why my comment made me cringe a little.

    Please, if you do read Haven please share your thoughts. I'm really curious to know what others think of it. So far, the Amazon reviews read like they're written by people who know Tom and want to give him a boost.

    I just couldn't get past the repeated hackneyed confrontations with the town bullies.

    I may push it up to my next book. I will share my thoughts once I finish it. For the record I had no issue with your comment. Not something I agree with but it was not overly negative in my view.

    Well that surprises me. Honestly. At least I can add "Stoker Award-Winner" to my auction listing if I decide to part ways with it.

    More proof that reading a book is a personal thing and I just couldn't connect with Haven.

    It's not you, Tom. It's me.

    Edit: Repeat of what Ron said about the award. Again I haven't read it either though.

    Well, that was an unexpected flurry of activity LOL!! I love CD, have purchased and will continue to purchase the great books they put out. October Dreams is what brought me here and it's those kinds of books that keep me coming back. I bought Salem's Lot and I plan on picking up some of the other Double Day titles, however, I'm actually a bigger fan of King's short fiction as of late. Also, bear in mind, as I've told some of you in the past, I'm not a true horror fanboy. Much more into fantasy/sci-fi/fill in the blank. It was through CD that I ventured into the wider world of small press publishers. I guess, you could say, they were my gateway small publisher. I'm all for them making it rain with Stephen King. We're all entitled to our preferences and we're lucky we have a great place like this to share our opinions about books, publishers and life in general. Now to all you Red Sux fans, a bag of peanuts, Really!!! HAHAHA!! You guys are the worse!

    Apart from those, I might have to pass. And that might hurt when those other two McCammon books are revealed.
    That's the hard part: My "want" list is infinite, while my bank account is finite. I completely forgot about Bird Box and Goblin; I want to pick those up as well!

    Goblin? Who is that one from? There have been so many S/L announcements of late that they're all starting to kind of blur.

    Of course! Happy to help spend someone else's money. I'm buying both of those editions blind--never having read Bird Box or anything b Malerman.
