    Interesting. It would appear I have not received a Borderlands newsletter since October.

    Straub is hit and miss for me. When hits he is as good as it gets, Lost Boy Lost Girl is an example of that. When he misses is can be about as bad as it gets, example Mr. X. Not sure about this one yet. I will need to see more details and if it is made available from other sellers.

    I was just reading through some old correspondence and Borderlands did mention Robert McCammon in their newsletter from June 2019. Copied and pasted:

    "Series III is almost completely sold out. Itís not too late to subscribe to the entire series of great Little Books with some upcoming writers such as Ramsey Campbell, Robert R. McCammon, Caitlyn Kiernan, and others to be announced. To set up your subscription, Contact us at info@borderlandspress.com."

    Well this is interesting--according to some random individual selling Little Books on eBay, Blake Crouch will appear in seres 3! Here's his statement:
    The remaining 7 titles in Series III will be published every 2 or 3 months by Borderlands Press. You can get on their mailing list to keep track of each new book which will include titles by Ramsey Campbell, Owen King, Robert R. McCammon, Blake Crouch, and others.

    And here's the link (super low starting bid!):
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/LITTLE-BOOK....c100010.m2109

    Does this individual have reliable information?? Should the list be updated?

    Total speculation on my part: Looking at items this seller is offering or sold and several are Borderlands or Montelone titles. This may be the publisher or someone close. No way to tell but I think the information may be accurate.

    Nice sleuthing! I think you're on to something. If that's the case, either the publisher or someone close to BP, then my great hope is that Blake Crouch is replacing Bentley Little.

    AND if this is someone very close to BP, then it makes even more sense that the seller would include a plug for the BP newsletter. Very interesting.

    While I hope that's the case for your sake, Jeff, I think it is far more likely to see Mr. King fall off that list than Mr. Little.

    This. And, I can verify that that is indeed BP owner Tom Montelone's eBay listing. This... seems like bad news to me. Hopefully not, but..

    I like the addition of Crouch...that’s great news. Frankly, I don’t get the inclusion of Owen King as this series has always been to showcase genre masters...Owen King is more literary than genre.

    Having only read Crouch's Pines trilogy and really liking it, I look forward to having a reason to read more from him.

    I'm fine with the addition of Crouch- I just have a feeling that it's a substitution for the elder Mr. King. Which is the only reason a lot of us committed to the whole series, where, truthfully- I would've probably only bought a few of. Watch- if he isn't in Series 3- they'll tease that he may be in series 4.

    I'm happy to see an entry from Crouch. I loved Pines. And I do suspect that his book will appear as one of the 15 in series 3 instead of Stephen King. And if that's the case, I think Tom should be clear about it. The moment he knows that King isn't contributing, he should put out a newsletter or something. I know my appreciation for his transparency would outweigh my disappointment in not having King. I planned on getting all of series 3 anyway.
