    All I know is I'm going to get the authors to unbox with me in a boxing ring. So when I get CD's edition of SLEEPING BEAUTIES, Stephen King will meet me in a ring where I will open the shipment and then fight him for three rounds. The series will be called (UN)BOXING. It'll be on Netflix.

    Since this is the age of remakes, They could do a "Taken" movie remake with Jeff's bird box being damaged and him yelling on the phone from his car "I do have a very particular set of skills. If you do not send the replacement, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you !!!!"

    Careful what you wish for. Remember that one was written by two people and they are both over 6'4". You are going down!

    We're still in pre-production and fine tuning the pilot. I might get a famous boxer to stand in for me.

    Saw it I am baffled. It's like highschool lunch all over again. Sitting by myself and not knowing what is going on.

    I've read the book and seen the movie. Is this DRP version worth picking up? The 75 price point is probably what's stopping me. 40-50 and I think I'd grab it.

    I'm still finishing up the ebook, but I have the DRP edition and it's really a great looking book. Plus, Glenn Chadbourne's art is, as usual, without compare. It's well worth the bump from the $40-$50 range.

    Side note. I assume the remaining copies won't last with all of the attention from the movie crowd.

    If you liked the movie and loved the book I would say yes. As an investment I'm not sure it will go very far but it fits great on my shelf.

    The DRP edition is gorgeous. It's signed and limited to 500. It comes with a new BIRD BOX short story. And Malerman's new afterword offers a great insight into the inspiration of the story. I think it's now a book that's had a larger cultural impact with the movie and it will increase in value over time. Maybe not enormously, but we'll see what Malerman does with his career. Already I see there are people hunting down GOBLIN which is the sold out Malerman book that Earthling published. I would grab a copy while they remain.

    Of course I already have one and a Lettered on the way.

    I have the book. And it is a beautiful book. It's a lower price than some Subterranean Press book, and it has nothing to envy. The difference is prestige. Bird Box has a beautiful design, beautiful illustrations, wide margins, and an attractive typography. Details that I would like Dark Reigns Press to repeat in another new book (if it's Sci-Fi, I'll be happy). In my opinion Bird Box has not been rated as it should have been, it must have been out of print a long time ago. I love some Subterranean press books and I love Bird Box by Dark Reigns Press.

    I probably sold my copy of GOBLIN too early…with his increased profile due to Netflix’ BIRD BOX (which I thought was meh), I’d certainly get more now than I did then, and perhaps even more a bit more as time goes on. Most here know I’m not much of a fan of Malerman, but I’d still like to give BIRD BOX (the book) another try...though it might just be my love of that S/L dustjacket talking.

    There are really great design elements throughout. And the Chadbourne art is some of his best in my opinion.

    Agreed, but I can't think of a single book that featured Glenn's artwork where he didn't do an amazing job. Especially Secretary of Dreams 1 & 2.

    Been debating whether or not to pick up this book as well. I really enjoyed the movie having not read the book.
