    I actually like the repair guy idea.

    Good call! Yeah he didn't believe me that the villain in Duma Key should be a pirate witch painting--he wanted to make it a factory worker at a cereal plant set in rural Ohio for no damn reason.
    It did not say that on the package but I may have that for lunch, minus the frying part of the program.

    I will give you the truth before Mr. Terry chimes in. It was good but not great.

    Fly to Chicago and have lunch with me and Brad and we can discuss the merits of Bentley Little's fiction.

    Life events will not allow me to come to Chicago right now but if you find yourself in the Portland/Vancouver area I know a great Creole place. You will have to come on a Wednesday though. They only serve lunch on Wednesday’s.

    That's not Bentley Little's Creole Kitchen you're referring to, is it?? I've heard GREAT things about that place.

    Since I brought it up here is a link. Best restaurant in Portland and a very different experience lunch to dinner. Dinner is white table cloth and the waiter scraping the crumbs from your table for you. Great date night place. Lunch is Po’ Boys and Bourbon street casual. Www.acadiapdx.com

    So to continue my useless and rambling commentary while reading this book. My reading time remains very limited but I and a bit past the halfway mark on Mr. Malerman’s novella. Up to now it is easily the best thing I have read from him. My reading of him is limited to Birdbox (good but not enough to inspire me to read more of his work) and his Borderlands Little Book (bad enough to make me resistant to read more of his work. If this one continues on its current path I will probably go for one of his other titles that current reside in my tbr pile. There is an early thread in the story that has been lost for sometime. I hope he ties it back into the story.

    So the Malerman novella was a great ending to a great collection. This was a five star read for me and I am glad I will have the limited on my shelf in the future. If some of the lettered were to come available I may even have to consider it. Big thanks to Brian for putting this together! For me this is up there with 999 in collections and that is high praise!

    Man, 999 is a true classic. Can't wait for this. I'm curious about the general.. "vibe" of this one, however. You had mentioned that it had a pulpy, Weird Tales-y feel to it? The key art and general info doesn't really scream that to me. Can you elaborate?
