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!

I'd love a copy of this to read to my son when he's a bit older, you'll keep us updated when publication and purchasing options occur?

Sweet Jeebus, this is unbelievable in the most awesome way possible. You, sir, have made my moustache twitch. That never happens.
