    And I just realized that the cover of the book in hand is completely different than the cover on the BP website. Looks like we got an upgrade!

    Hopefully, I am not spoiling anything, but the next book is.....number 8.

    Sorry, Jeff. I might have been mistaken. Who knows?? It might be 7 1/4 or 7 5/8.

    I just read this from Robert McCammon in the November 2019 issue of Locus Magazine. We knew there was going to be a book from McCammon in this series, but now we know the title.

    ‘‘I’m doing a little book for Tom Monteleone’s Borderlands Press, called A Little Amber Book of Wicked Shots. I enjoy mixing drinks, so each story has a recipe for a shot that has something to do with the story. That’ll be fun."

    Nice! I'm looking forward to his volume.

    Jeff, for the McCammon Little Book, you need to up your game and have one or two of the drinks ready for the unboxing video!!

    Today a package arrived from BP with what I hoped was The Little Yellow Book - but nope - it contained the slipcase, which I wasn't interested in.

    I sent off an email because I think BP was really confused about what was happening. I got quite a few different invoices, some got voided/canceled, some got resent. I clearly paid for the Yellow book and not the slipcase, but yet the slipcase arrived.

    Hopefully they can figure it out because I would hate to lose my Yellow book.

    My yellow book arrived inside of the slipcase. But I did order the slipcase so that made sense shipping wise. Hope they get it cleared up for ya.

    Usually I'm crazy about slipcases, but for some reason, I'm just not interested in the ones for this set. It's so weird.

    I've always been the same re: these Little Book slipcases. Love the books but the slipcases seem... kind of random and unnecessary. But, most seem to like them, so..

    It beats having 45 little hardcovers with no titles on the spine by the time they finish series 3.

    For sure! You need those slipcases. Otherwise you just end up using the little books as coasters. I wish I was rich enough to do that--buy an entire set just to use them as conversation-starting coasters at the parties I never throw.

    Hey, can you please not invite me to the party you're not throwing?
