    I am considering this one. Not to be morbid but it feels like this may be a finale.

    That's funny! A Big Book of Little Nonsense.

All 902 of them (not counting the PC copies). So it's possible. And since SK has been a potential entry before (I believe there was chatter about him maybe being in series 2?) and it would be a very bad look for Borderlands to continue to name drop him but never produce his work, then I think we're pushing from possibility to probability.
    Another possibility: It’s entirely possible that they will do a collection of his work but he will not sign it. It could either be an unsigned book or signed by someone introducing the collection. As little financial incentive as there is in the Cemetery Dance limiteds, at least there is some remuneration coming his way. With these, at $30 a pop, there is comparatively none. Plus he has a friendship with CD’s owner, Richard Chizmar. He signed the last $40 Borderlands book, which I featured a few days ago on my Twitter feed, but that was because the book was honoring his friend, Charles Grant. There’s no such connection this time, and I’ll be very surprised if there is a Stephen King collection, and significantly more so if it’s signed

    Little Book Series 4: 14 volumes of Bentley Little, 1 mystery volume that might be a famous horror author we all know and love (coughcoughKingcough)

    You have to buy the first 14 volumes to be eligible for the 15th.

    Yes, I suppose that is another route. An unsigned King book (or at least not signed by King). But it'll still be a bad look for BP. The whole gimmick of these little books relies on the signature. When the author is deceased, it's understandable to get someone else to sign, but putting that King signature as a carrot and then not fully delivering on it will cost some major points. If that happens, far fewer if any will likely come back for Series IV.

    I own The Circle by Bentley Little. I can review it right here if you'd like. But I'd spoil it for folks who might want to read it and get disappointed all on their own.

    And you had every right to enjoy it and I don't think any less of you or anyone who likes Little. Even though I can't understand it.

Or an Ania Ahlborn. Or a Clive Barker! Or a Chuck Palahniuk. Or a Patrick McCabe. Not that McCabe fits the genre. Or a Sarah Pinborough.
    I'm holding out for the The Little Forest Green Book of Jeffingoff Videos.

    I didn't realize that Tom shared that news yet. It'll be signed by Stephen King, Cormac McCarthy, Joe Lansdale, Clive Barker, Josh Malerman, Patrick McCabe, David Wong, and Chuck Palahniuk.

    I have already arranged to send mine to Bentley Little to have him add his signature.

    Having him sign it only makes sense. He is probably the most mentioned author in your series.

    That is true! But Christopher Walken refused to attach himself to any project that included Little. There's some major bad blood there!

    But how many times has Mr. Walken been mentioned on your channel? Clearly Mr. Little is the proper choice. They should swap out the intro with Jordan Peele. If that does not work out Chuck Palahniuk can always step in.
