      Cant believe we had to wait so long for a book from an established author. Nice story but those pictures of the prisoner had nothing to do with the story. Didnt the artist read it?

    2. Richard Thomas on November 4, 2015

      BOOK GLUTTON level, just got all of my books, and while it was a bit of a delay, WOW, these are amazing, not just Lansdale's, which is really special, but all of the books. Thanks, Chris.

      Just as J.C. asked: What is the status? Haven't heard anything since the beginning of June and noone is answering my private message or emails sent to you?

      I cant believe something i pledged for way back in 2013 still hasnt arrived. Early bird ha! When do i get my books?

    5. Tom Nugent on June 3, 2015

      Thank you very much for the quick update regarding the early bird status. Much appreciated.

    6. Tom Nugent on May 29, 2015

      Chris - update on the early bird special? Don't leave previous and future kickstarter funders hanging.

    7. Sam Cowan on May 22, 2015

      I am also interested in the status of the "EARLY BIRD SPECIAL" shipments. I think these packages weren't going to ship until the trade paperbacks were available, looks like those are in stock. Is there an ETA for shipping?

    8. Chris Reid on May 10, 2015

      Should be at all worried that I haven't heard anything about whether or not my "EARLY BIRD SPECIAL" package has shipped? I see from the updates that (as of 4/28) 90% have shipped...did I just happened to be in that final 10%?
      (I sent this as a message as well, but I've heard that sometimes people have trouble getting messages through...)

      Haven't gotten anything yet but looking forward to my copy.

      Hoping to see what's in the mail soon....

      Hey guys, when do we get to pick our additional three signed limited editions, for those that spent $150? Just want to make sure I get the titles that I want. Thanks so much!

      You guys are doing such a good job of promoting this that I nearly bought it again.

    13. Chris Morey 4-time creator on November 13, 2013

      Carsten, I'm not big on people promoting their own projects on our project page, but the 7th Guest was a big game to us in my childhood, and my senior project in college was working for one of the game developers behind the project. Best of luck. That is one lofty goal!

    14. Carsten D on November 13, 2013

      Looking forward to hold the ebook in my hands.

      A personal request for those who want to go from horror novella to horror game...

      In days begone a nursery rhyme,
      sent a chilling down my spine...
      Old man Stauf got me to play,
      as 7th Guest and I did stay,
      till time passed the 11th Hour,
      when Stauf lost all but not his power.
      The time is now he wants your soul:
      he's The Collector, that's his goal.
      So if you have some bucks to spare,
      please fund this project - if you dare.

    15. Oskar Rodriguez on November 11, 2013

      Yes!! Very happy about this, finally the project will be a reality and besides the first stretch reached.
      Amazing end for the campaign!!

      Thanks to everyone involved in supporting, funding, creating, participating, and dreaming (did I include all the necessary senses?) this project into a real thing.

      I hope my enthusiasm for this book comes across as gratitude instead of arrogance. I'm really happy to see this project happen. And I'm grateful I was able to be a small part.

      So thanks.

    17. Chris Morey 4-time creator on November 11, 2013

      Thank you, Luca and Garrett! So happy to have you guys join us. We reached that first stretch goal! This book is going to be something very special :)

    18. Luca Galli on November 11, 2013

      Upped my pledge too and gladly it reached the first stretch goal!
      Thanks to everyone for reaching such a great milestone, every book will be more than awesome now!

    19. Garrett Copeland on November 11, 2013

      I am so very excited for this project. Absolutely fantastic. Feels good to play even a minor role in such worthy endeavour. Cheers amigos!

    20. Chris Morey 4-time creator on November 10, 2013

      Thank you all! The book will now include double the artwork and in full color! What an amazing final day. I'm working on a Kickstarter update right now. Look for it soon!

      Nicely done! Now Joe "Hisownself" can write one of his kickass stories with some truly awesome artwork. I'm happy to be on board.

    23. Rick Turner on November 10, 2013

      That's Awesome! I really glad to be part of this!

    24. Chris Reid on November 10, 2013

      And there it is!

    25. Rick Turner on November 10, 2013

      It's better to ask for forgiveness instead of permission! I upped my ante too!

    26. Chris Reid on November 10, 2013

      I wish I could kick down some more $$$ but I'm already gonna be in trouble with the wife as it is...
      but it's in spittin' distance to $30,000....

      Rorschack on November 10, 2013

      OK I upped my ante. Let's do this!

    28. Rick Turner on November 10, 2013

      This is very exciting watch the numbers go up as we come into the final hour towards the $30K Stretch Goal. Love the deal about Santiago Caruso artwork being in color and getting artwork prints, numbered and signed by Santiago for $200 or more pledge. Plus all the other bonuses! Btw, Add Ons count toward meeting the pledged goal ~ $30K.

      Way to go Richard Thomas!!!

    29. Richard Thomas on November 10, 2013

      trying to do everything i can to push this over the $30k mark!

      Glad to be part of this- congrats!
      Joe, write us a good one :)

    31. Chris Morey 4-time creator on November 8, 2013

      Janneke, thank you so much. I think we'll make it, but these last hours are going to be a bit on the intense side.

      Richard, we plan on it! As you said, there's no time to be shy anymore. People might get annoyed with us blasting info about the project all over the place, but we need to make this campaign a success.

    32. Richard Thomas on November 8, 2013

      chris, don't be shy, hit up all of the writing groups on facebook. i'll look around and see where you haven't been yet, but i don't want to be annoying. good luck! i'm sure this will make it.

    33. SmallPressComicsReview on November 8, 2013

      Very exciting watching the numbers go up :)
      I hope this makes it. I love Joe R. Lansdale stories, they are all worthy of beautiful artwork.

    34. Paula Limbaugh on November 7, 2013

      I can't believe how much the pledges have grown in the last week! Truly incredible!

    35. Rick Turner on November 7, 2013

      Susan, I just checked the Kickstarter Black Labyrinth Book II Home page, Add Ons Section and it indicates change your pledge, not your reward level. However, if you're signed into your account you can manage your pledge, such as, cancel and reselect a higher level pledge. Hope this helps you out, just trying to be helpful. :-) Manage Your Pledge is located to the right of this message if you're logged in. First goals within reach!

      Susan Scofield on November 7, 2013

      Do the "Add Ons" count toward the pledge goal?

    37. Oskar Rodriguez on November 6, 2013

      Still no sigh of relief, of course, but it´s very very near!! This project deserves it!!

    38. Chris Morey 4-time creator on November 5, 2013

      Rick, it's very exciting, but we won't breathe a sigh of relief until the campaign reaches its goal and ends successfully!

      I appreciate your support, and yes: plenty of good coffee here in the DRP office. Peet's Cafe Solano and Brazil Monte Alegre :)

      Here's hoping we can celebrate together in 5 days!

    39. Luca Galli on November 5, 2013

      Avid horror fan from Italy here. I really hope that you will be able to reach your funding goals, buona fortuna.

    40. Rick Turner on November 5, 2013

      As I write this you're $22,246.00 or 88.98% percent at meeting your goal! I'm confident you will meet your goal and must likely exceed it. Looking forward to another great book in the series! Thanks Chris Morey, Joe Lansdale, Santiago Caruso and Dark Region Staff for your hard work and outstanding books! Keep the faith! Btw, I hope you're drinking good Coffee....:-)

    41. Chris Morey 4-time creator on November 1, 2013

      Thank you Oskar and Michael! Coming up to the final week... I'm prepared to go sleepless for seven days to make sure this campaign is a success. Plenty of coffee on standby.

    42. Oskar Rodriguez on October 30, 2013

      I hope we can see this project funded and the book published!!

    44. Mark Sieber on October 8, 2013

      I've been a Lansdale fan since The Drive-In was first published in paperback. I'm proud to be a part of this project. I'm fully confident the goal will be reached.
