“Sword and Mythos” is Fully Funded

Writing in all-caps is unprofessional but no matters: OMG YOU GUYS WE REACHED OUR GOAL.

I’m sure you noticed that we’ve been promoting the Sword and Mythos IndieGoGo in an effort to raise enough funds to pay professional rates for our next anthology. There was a lot of nail-biting, a lot of begging, and finally a happy dance when we not only reached our goal, but surpassed it by $400 dollars.

Many thanks to everyone who tweeted about us or …

Found on the Net: Cthulhu Fluxx

By Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Well, here’s a card game I had not seen before: Cthulhu Fluxx. The official website provides the following description:

Someone has stolen the Necronomicon from the library at Miskatonic Univeristy, and a Farm in the hills is undergoing a horrifying Metamorphosis. Meanwhile, unspeakable abominations stir in Penguin-riddled Tombs beneath the ice. Are …

Lots of Changes at Innsmouth Free Press

We’ve got lots of changes coming to Innsmouth. Don’t worry! These are good changes!

Columns and television coverage

We have covered a lot of television shows in the past few years. It’s been fun, but we are changing our direction. Starting in 2013, we will review fewer TV shows and they will be integrated into a column format, joining our other current columns. For example, Paula R. Stiles will continue to cover TV shows with an urban bent like Supernatural
