My apologies for the lack of any updates of late, but after several months of sleepless nights right at the end, and three years in the making, the revised H.P.Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers) was completed, and sent to Chaosium on November 26th.  Not sure what the plan is from here, but when I know I'll pass it on.  Thanks to everyone for your encouraging words!

Howdy friends,

There has been an exciting development! 

A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers).  When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality.  I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.

I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.

In the meantime, I'm posting up the pages of The Statement of Randolph Carter (for beginning readers) I was working on when the word came through from Chaosium.  Being very much aware of the irregular schedule that I have in posting these things, I was going to hold on to these until I had finished the whole story.  I figured folks wouldn't have to put up with the long waits betwixt posts, but with the whole thing on hold for the moment, you may as well take a look at them now with the adaptation currently incomplete.

(Yes, yes, I know - Dagon (for beginning readers) is also a few pages short of a complete story.  It will get done.  Eventually.)

Take care of yourselves, and be excellent to each other!

My son kept asking about Cthulhu after seeing the pictures in our books at home. He seemed so interested in hearing the stories, but I was afraid the wording would confuse him (he's only seven). I am very happy to have found your version of The Call of Cthulhu, and am eager to purchase a copy of the book.

Thanks for the support!  The revised version of The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers) which I have recently completed is, I believe, even easier to read - hopefully we'll be seeing it in print soon.
