As someone who suffers from Lyme I like the tick idea. Congrats everyone!

I'm glad you enjoyed my nightmare telephone. We are not all too far from the possibility of that kind of psychological warfare...

If by “picked up a copy” you mean drop kicking an old lady who had the last copy at the bookstore and then running out of said bookstore with said last copy then yes, yes I picked up a copy.

The cries have been vindicated. Thank you.

A pleasant surprise, didn't expect you'd pick my eternally over-optimistic gamble on humans. Its really nice to think of novels/movies as requirements for living, and inspiration to be good. Not just as an escape.

Thank you, Chuck. I am glad that the incessant ear-splitting drone of cicadas made the cut 😄

Congratulations to winners. May your package be extra spooky. No those aren't Portland hitchhikers' skeletons in your packages they're from Seattle. The weak ankles give them away.

A reminder. Only six of the nine winners have sent their addresses. Most of those six will ship today. The rest on Monday. If you get me your address via The Cult, I can ship your prize on Monday as well. chuck

Hi Chuck,

I wanted to let you know that my prize arrived safely. It is really quite beautiful. All of it. Thank you.

The last couple of days have been hard. One of my cats, Bruce, passed away on Halloween - the day after my birthday. He was twelve.

That package really added some brightness to my day. And I appreciate it.
