Strangely, I had two stories in Chaosium books… in ‘Cthulhu’s Heirs’ (1994): Watch the Whiskers Sprout – and in ‘Song of Cthulhu’ (2001): Fall From Grace.

Dream Catching-Up

Tomorrow being 1st September, I intend to resume my daily real-time reviews of Rhys Hughes’ ‘Flash in the Pantheon’ flash fictions and ‘Rhysop’s Fables’ together with my on-going Dreamcatching of books purchased during my now completed sabbatical.

While maintaining the previous aim of an accretive gestalt for each book, I intend to scatter my piecemeal reading and real-time reviewing among these books as the mood takes me in the various comment streams attached to the following posts.
