I had a joke here originally: but it is unfortunately not currently a good joke, because it will hurt people’s feelings unintentionally. Not that I am above hurting people’s feelings – quite the opposite – but I don’t like doing it except when it’s part of a deliberate campaign to administer a good kicking to the truly deserving. So I’ll just mention some of the geekstuff that I picked up, thanks largely to generous reader contributions.
In no particular order:
- Future Lovecraft. Anthology of space/future-themed Lovecraftian fiction. Acquired primarily because one of the authors is Robyn Seale, whose weekly steampunk-Mythos webcomic The Watcher of Yaathagggu is a favorite of mine.
- The Specialists, Issue 1 & 2. World War II superhero comic. Bought largely because while the comic’s available for free as it goes, these guys have to eat and it was two bucks a PDF.
- This Favored Land. Civil War superhero RPG using the Wild Talents game engine. This one I decided to get the print version.
- Spinnerette, Chapters 1-5. Guilty-pleasure, yes-there-is-cheesecake, I-regret-nothing, anime-style superhero comic. As I said, these people have to eat.
- And, of course, the aforementioned Whisperer in Darkness / HPLHS membership.
