He said he was going to alternate entries in the Rant trilogy with other, unrelated books. By my count, there have been three novels since Rant - one a year, like clockwork - and not one has been even distantly connected to Rant.

This blows my mind because I thought Palahniuk had more or less stopped publishing things once I turned 20.
Terribly boring anecdote: For my high school creative writing class, I wrote a (god awful) story that sounded like a 17-year-old trying to write like Chuck Palahniuk. To give my teacher (I was in love with her) an idea of what I was going for, I brought in the recently published "Guts." Trivia points to the first person to correctly identify the publication and thus the punchline to this story.

Well done. Yes, my teacher made a copy of the story and then furtively handed me the magazine because, hurray coincidences, some kid had gotten in trouble that very day for having the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition.

There were some really good stories in haunted, though. I don't have my copy right now, unfortunately, so I can't look and figure out which ones they were. The Mystery Box... I remember that was one I really liked.
