    (or not)

    Stories about those listed in the 6/13/14 tweet on the Mr. Mercedes trilogy?

    Collected from previously published in magazines, etc. but complete list has not yet been decided. Whether there are any completely new ones for the collection--to be determined.

    So the next book is "Finders Keepers" and it somehow involves the victims of the City Center Massacre. What do we know is missing from the first book? There was a creepy reference to a severed finger perhaps being taken from the crime scene.

    I guess I'm confused. Or read it wrong more than likely. The book of stories is NOT MM related then?

    That's right--not related to Mr. Mercedes. The two books he's referring to for 2015 are Finder's Keepers, the MM sequel, and in the fall a short story collection that is not related. The third book in the trilogy would probably be in 2016.

    If we do get it in the late fall I can tell you what will be under the Christmas Tree with an Out of Order name tag on it. I love the story collections too!

    I love short story collections. I just love them. Especially STeve's, but I love when authors have those big volumes of short stories.

    For someone to be witty, they have to be smart. You are witty, so therefore, you are smart.

    That should be embroidered on a pillow.

    I looove the title Finders Keepers. I love the short story collections too! I have reread all of them in the last year.

    I need to re-read those. Such good stories I've forgotten about. Although, once I start reading them, it is like finding an old familiar friend.

    I will get right on this, if I can find a thimble...........

    My copies of the collections have taken some abuse over the years. They really need replacing especially Night Shift and Skeleton Crew.

    My ONLY complaint about the proposed story collection is that is will mainly contain stories that have already been published in magazine form. I spend a lot of time tracking those magazines down and buying them. I really hope that there will be at least a couple of brand new stories in the collection.
