    Hey Martin, thanks to your posts, I tried out the NRB. I really dig it! I dropped another subscription I had and decided to move forward with this one. Thanks!

    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

    I know nothing about the book or author but it sounds very intriguing

    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.

    SCORE on the two signed copies! That's pretty awesome. Bummer on the shipping snag. I hate those little bumps in the subscription, but I'm so excited for the stuff on the horizon that I couldn't really imagine quitting now. It would be like selling stock and then watching that stock skyrocket a week later.

    Glad you are enjoying it. They have done a great job in both book and trinket selection for my taste.

    Although I do not have your inside information I am not thinking about cancelling at this time. I may drop the priority shipping if it turns out that it does not improve the transit time as it should. I also would prefer to have the month's box in hand before the following month is charged. If that is the new norm I may choose to drop out. The prospect of things to come would probably not keep me subscribed if I chose to no longer participate. I can't imagine spending over $40 each month in order to get an item or two I want.

    I managed to order two copies of Shining in the Dark. Ron Clinton offered to trade a book for my extra copy. With that offer I managed a snag a book I have almost ordered on multiple occasions.

    I now own Goblin by Josh Malerman.

    The book is gorgeous, my only complaint would be that I do not care for the bright white paper.
    I have read Bird Box my Malerman and enjoyed it. There have been mixed reviews on this board about Malerman's work, I will see how I like this one.

    It just got real! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I completely agree about the paper selection. Paul seems to favor that bright white stock and I think it's too cold.

    Yeah, I just couldn’t feel the love for GOBLIN that you did, Jeff, so thought I’d give it another shot at love in Martin’s arms.

    That's the best move. If I could find someone who was looking for a signed first edition of HAVEN, I'd do the same thing. I cannot love this book and books was meant to be loved.

    So once I can get to reading it I guess I will break the tie on this one.

    I can't recall who all signed the Biblio Key but the book is signed by Joe Hill and Stephen King!
