    You're most welcome. I assume I'll be notified when you post something new. Not sure how that works.

    Yeah, you should get a little notification when you log into YouTube whenever there's a new video posted by someone you subscribe to. I think the next thing I'll post will probably be the Nocturnal Reader's Box April unboxing and if you watch that one, you'll probably be treated to a high pitched squeal of delight. You'll hear and see a 45 year old man let loose a high pitched squeal of delight over a book. THAT'S what you just subscribed to.

    I thought you had read the ARC of that book and were not overly thrilled with it?

    I do have an ARC and it's signed. And I wasn't over the moon about it, but I did like it quite a bit. I'd recommend it to pretty much anyone other than our friend Ron Clinton. I planned on buying it in hardcover anyway. So this spares me that added expense. But there might be something else to screech about. Maybe not. I have a low threshold for screeching as witnessed in my Shining and Little Books unboxings.

    Now I'm freaking out. Yes, that's all it takes. Where's my invoice Tom???

    Deep breaths.

    BTW, I just read my first Little Book: A Little Magenta Book About a Dollhouse by Edward Lee. I really liked it. Never read him before. I thought he pulled off a cool concept.

    I have read a few Edward Lee titles and enjoyed them. He sometimes goes for the gross-out but I enjoy his stories.

    Yeah, the sex and violence and grossness weren't overdone in the Little Book. They actually served a really balanced unique story.

    The LITTLE BOOK novella was fairly atypical for Lee in that regard...and I agree, it’s a good, solid read.

    It was also atypical in that it’s the only novella in either LB series...all others are collections.

    I've stayed away from a lot of Lee's stuff because of the gross-out factor. I've only read one of his short stories, "The Stick Woman", and I remember there being some stomach-churning stuff in that bad boy. Well-written, but not my steady diet of horror.

    This is good to hear. I'm finally working my way through the rest of the Little Books Series II and just finished Ray Garton's volume which I wound up enjoying. Lee's volume is a couple down the line I believe (yeah, I'm reading them in order of release, for no reason other than my reader's OCD kicks in) but I'm curious to read it.

    That is actually a completely acceptable reason!

    I thought about reading them in order. And that made the most sense. But then I saw that out of all the books only Lee's was a completely self-contained novella so I started with that one. Now that I've broken out of the Matrix, I'm free to read them in any order I damn well please! Mwah ha ha ha! I might read Hill's next! Then Hautala's!! Who knows?

    Also, I STILL don't have my f**king invoice for the first book in Series III!

    Yeah, there is no logical reason to have to read them in release order, but for some reason, it will just nag at me if I do. I'm glad that you have escaped the Matrix. Everything here still tastes like chicken and I can't find that woman in the red dress for the life of me...

    Hell, if that's all you need, I'll charge you for the next 14 volumes.
