    Congrats on the mention, Laird. I remember when you first mentioned Between Here and the Yellow Sea on your blog, years back. I bought the book and never got around to reading it. Must make it a priority.

    Thanks for posting that link, Laird. The trick for the series will be to see if it can stick to its guns. Much of the finest weird fiction is not simply a quest to induce “cosmic fear”. It also unflinchingly explores the bleakest implications of the enigma of existence. Hit series material? I hope so!

    Hi, Kenton. Looks like it’s found a big audience for sure.
