The ONLY thing I wish it had was a slipcase (I would have gladly paid more for it if it was going to be the same price as the numbered OFF SEASON which was initially $95 with the slipcase). This book is worth every penny and it drives me batshit crazy that so many remain unsold. Especially with the renewed attention brought about by the upcoming Netflix movie. Look, I know a bunch of people hate Malerman's signature, but what are you going to do? That's his signature. Don't let it stop you from a great read fantastically produced. And goddamn, Malerman basically explains what's behind the story.

    I have read and really enjoyed the book. I do not feel the need for a signed/limited version but if I do buy it, it will be to read the extra content. I am more on the fence about Bird Box than I am a artist gift edition of Horns. I am a sucker for extra content in limited editions!

    I thought I'd get more value out of the additional fiction, but it was the new afterword I kept thinking about. I mean, I really liked the new short story. It's just the afterword explained a lot and made me appreciate the original novel even more.

    Damn you, trying to spend my money again. I may contact him and see if he will make me a deal if I go pick it up and allow him to avoid the packaging and shipping.

    Hey guys, don't want to focus on this kind of stuff too much, but since I already started clearing the air in this thread, wanted to clear the air a little more:

    One of the main lies perpetuated by those individuals with ulterior motives was that we treat our authors poorly/don't pay royalties. Authors from Jeff Strand to Ramsey Campbell will tell you that while sometimes we have delays and make mistakes, we always work with politeness and professionalism and always pay our authors their due royalties.

    Something else I've seen mentioned on these forums is that other individuals were responsible for getting our "big names." Another falsehood that I wish to correct: I was the one who approached Mark Miller at World Horror Convention to do our first Clive Barker project. I was the one to approach Jack Ketchum at our writing retreat about Off Season.. and I was the one who got us all of our Joe R. Lansdale projects. There were a couple reprints by Stephen King that were acquired by others, but besides that every single big name author who has worked with Dark Regions Press is because of me, and they will tell you that I'm very polite and professional to deal with directly. In fact, Jack Ketchum and I became professional friends before his untimely passing, and he readily agreed to have Dark Regions Press publish the other two books in his Dead River series because of his positive experience dealing with us with Off Season.

    Anyway, just wanted to make things a little more clear on those two points. I'll drop it now. Thanks for reading guys.

    Wish I lived near a small press publisher who would considered that . Pretty sure my wife is happy that there are none in our area.
    I have to say that Bird Box is on my list of favorite books in the last few years. I also love the production value of the DRP books I have ordered. The Kickstarter and the indigogo campaigns have been kind of confusing at times. Would love to see a more clear way for projects to get done.

    Josh Malerman GOBLIN 13-copy "town" edition

    Hi all,
    Sorry to come in late in the game, just seeing this thread now. The recent special edition of GOBLIN was a 13-copy "Goblin town" edition, with a special signed tip sheet noting who from Goblin owned the book, offered to a few long-time Halloween Series (direct) customers as a thank-you and also a way of celebrating 13 years of Halloween Series books. I've just put pictures up on the Earthling website (below link; scroll to bottom), in case anyone is curious. This is NOT the lettered. Just a fun small run.
    Best,
    Paul
