Why is my print edition pictures all different? They don't seem to have the 'edge' of these amazing works of art. What gives? Did Chaosium force censorship? Please a curious mind must know the truth!!! BTW keep up the AMAZING work!! Lifetime fan right here.

Hey thanks for your support!

By the time it went to print several years of practice had passed, and I essentially re-did everything for publication.  My eyes and ears could only ever see and hear the things I wanted to improve in these "original" versions (which were already revised versions of the first versions - I heard you like versions, so I made a version of the version, or something like that).  IMHO, the print version is the definitive one, and Chaosium were extremely supportive of the whole process.

Thank you for the fast and kind response. I thought maybe I got some kind of knock off version because of the art difference and verbiage being somewhat half of what I find on this site. My kids already love it as do I.

This is begging for an appropriately written book to revisit the story in verse.

*Notes it's been done and soon to be published*

I just got my ten year old son interested in Cthulhu. He would probably go insane, if I got him this book... Not just because Cthulhu drives people mad, but because this is so awesome.

Hey! I just saw this and I have to say, I'm a really big fan. I love how well you're able to emulate Seuss' style - also, congrats on getting published (I think?)! I'd buy a copy of this in a heartbeat, but yeah, congratulations. And amazing work. :D

I must have this! I have a friend with a small publishing company and will surely let him know of this. If you already have something in the works, I'd love to know where and when I could get a copy. Or three.
