    You have convinced me to give the Nocturnal Reader’s Box a try. I’ve been on the fence on this one for a long time.

    I think the cover of Widow’s Point looks very nice!

    Well my Sleeping Beauties Slipcases did not get to spend much time in Spokane. The very next day I got another delivery updated email and received them on Saturday.

    I think these are my favorite slipcases yet. The photos do not do them justice:

    I agree, Martin! They are superb!

They promised a Stephen King interview and all sorts of other goodies. I jumped on it purchasing the first two issues, the purchase included a signed print of issue 1 cover art and an IDW PDX pin.

    Well I received issue 1 today and it greatly exceeded my expectations. I took a few photos but to be honest I could easily take photos of all 199 pages. This thing is just stunning! It will take me a while to get through it.

    I will try to get pictures up this weekend but just wanted to say I received lucky number 13 of the Cemetery Dance Signature Series today. Cheeseboy from Graham Masterton with art by Chris Bankston is another homerun. In my view the Signature Series books are fantastic!

    Agreed, Martin! I also enjoy the Novella Series and the Graveyard Series books are gorgeous. Series collections bode well with us OCD types

    I enjoy novellas in general but have made no attempt to go back and complete the series. I may choose to attempt that one day. Only one into the Graveyard series I do love it and am excited about some of the announced titles! I really love art in books and the unique design and integral role art plays in telling the story really works in the Signature series!

    If anyone is an NRB subscriber, then you probably got the email today that gets at one of the things I was so excited about.

    One of my first goals was to get a complete set of both the Signature Series and Novella series, but those goals kinda fell by the wayside. I think I need to start that up again.

    I have purchased every Signature series as they have been released. Have never even checked to see how many Novella Series I would need to track down to complete that one.

    I have both full sets thus far. I was late to the game so it cost me dearly.

    I doubt I would be willing to shell out the funds that would be required to piece together a full Novella set. I have not looked into it though.

    Money possibility could be better spent elsewhere instead of playing catch up for sure.

    Pin from Robert Chamber's The King in Yellow

    Not familiar with this book but the pin is cool.

    Very cool Dark Tower Sticker set
    P1370588.jpg

    Nice bookmark from Michael McDowell's The Elementals

    Not familiar with this and have to admit I thought it was Dark Tower related at first glance.

    Two real strong book selections this month:
    Previous release The Fury by John Farris
    P1370590.jpgP1370592.jpg
    A classic story I have never read. Happy to add this to my collection, and I got a signed copy!

    New release, The Gone World by Tom Sweterlitsch
    P1370593.jpgP1370594.jpg
    I know nothing about the book or author but it sounds very intriguing

    P1370596.jpgP1370597.jpg

    Now the bad:
    For the third straight month I did not receive my box until after the next renewal payment processed. That is after upgrading to priority shipping. The Nocturnal Reader's Box shipped on the 8th but the USPS says the received the item on the 13th. Something clearly went sideways and hopefully it will not be a systemic problem.

    This months print is a low resolution. This was identified by The Nocturnal Reader's Box prior to my receiving it and is being resolved at this time.

    The T-Shirt came as the wrong size. I checked my account and prior shirts and they are the correct size. I have sent an email to resolve this.

    Conclusion:
    I really like The Nocturnal Reader's Box and am hoping they work out the kinks.

    Received a very prompt response from The Nocturnal Reader's Box that they will send me the correct sized shirt. Very good customer service!
