    Agreed. Only 4 books in Series 3 thus far. I also only have the Hill book from Series 2. Jeff Whiley made a pretty cool case for it.

I'll report back on what I find out.
    Yeah, he sold the third slipcase for the last 5 in Series II but now it's backorder again. When I ordered (a loooooong time ago) Tom told me the slipcase maker is very slow so you might have a bit of a wait to get yours. He hasn't announced the slipcase for the first 5 of series III yet.

    So it was indeed sold to the public, and some actually have it in hand? Great. If it was offered by Borderlands, it looks like I missed out on it as Camelot didn't receive their shipment of it for their customers. You know, between this and another few recent small-press disappointments -- including one situation where I returned a S/L book for the first time in my 30-plus years of collecting -- it feels like lately playing in the small-press sandbox has progressively become less satisfying and more frustrating, which is unfortunate.

    I'm sorry! I feel like I let you down. I paid for mine back in August of 2018 and I just got it a few weeks ago. Didn't do an unboxing video because LIFE

    Hahaha, on the contrary, glad you gave me the heads-up...I'd no idea the last slipcase came and went without my knowing about it. I've reached out to Camelot and Borderlands to see what can be done...we'll see what happens.

    Thanks Brian. I order from CD and get the extra stop before it ships to me. Been reading small press horror for 21 years now and have grown very patient, recently had a media mail shipment take 10 weeks.

    Were you a participant of the horror mall era circa 2010/2011? That one turned into a real poop show.

    No, I never did utilize them much. Wasn’t that Larry Roberts’ (Bloodletting Press) operation? I honestly can’t remember any issues with it, but, again, I didn’t use it more than a time or two.

    Yeah Larry Roberts and Shane Staley (delirium/darkfuse). Lots of collectors got ripped off in the end.

    Really unfortunate to hear, though sadly not an unfamiliar story in this little corner of the book world we hang out in.

    Hi Ron, I'm also waiting for the 3rd slipcase from Camelot Books, so I'd be interested to know what reply you get.

    Good news for both of us, Jason… I heard from Tom or Elizabeth yesterday that they had just sent Camelot’s batch out in the mail, so they are on their way to them now. I also shortly after received a confirmation from Kim that they are indeed on their way, so we both should be hearing something from her within the week, I would think. If by any chance you’re not able to get yours through Camelot, Tom/Elizabeth did indicate that they have a second batch coming in in a week or so, so you could order from them direct if Camelot doesn’t work out.

    This is the first time I am buying a complete series of the Little Books. Does Cemetery Dance offer the slipcases?

    Jason, more news r.e. Camelot and slipcases...from today's newsletter (in case you didn't see it): • The slipcase for the last set of Series II are starting to show up, but before I send out e-mails to those that are getting it, the next book in Series III - A Little Red Book of Requests by Josh Malerman - should also be arriving soon so I want to hold off on all e-mails for the slipcase until we get the next book and that way it helps cut down on shipping costs to ship the two together.

    Nice. Thanks for this update, all heavy hitters in my opinion.
