Thanks for all your hard work. I look forward to reading the ones I can access.

I wish I could stay up all night reading these but I had to stop after the first one due to it already being after midnight.

Thanks for compiling this! I loved reading Brenner's "Strange Beads." The ebay offerings of Bergbay310 are just as charming and intriguing as described.

It's interesting to see how the online essay landscape has changed in the four years since I put one of these up. "Longform" is a thing, with a name, and is everywhere.
