Call of Cthulhu

Received an email from an old friend and a great Call of Cthulhu player, reminding me how much fun we had in the games. Those were the nights. I'll be offline for most of the next week on a vampire-hunting mission (actually my mom is visiting. Yes I have a mother. Don't act so surprised.). Email protected static with any macabre goodies that should be posted until I return.

Hah! About 3 months ago, I found my Call of Cthulhu coffee mug, illustrated by Phil Foglio... I'd totally forgotten I owned it.

Have a good time, Carnacki - and for anyone w/ dark/horrific/weird stuff they'd like to see posted here, my email address is static at [my profile name dot com] (no spaces, of course...).

Have a nice break, Ben! I'm enjoying the chance to read your novel (part of the reason I'm taking this break!). So, LILITH!!--from George MacDonald's Victorian masterpiece? That's an interesting wrinkle. I'm jealous that you got to play Call of Cthulhu (the Chaosium RPG, right?). I could never get enough people interested to play.

Hi curt,
Hope you're enjoying the book. My Lilith is from the Bible and Jewish folklore. What's the title of George MacDonald's book?

googled "George MacDonald"+Lilith and found it posted online. I wish I was smart enough or knowledgable enough to say the Victorian connection with MacDonald's Lilith was intended.

You should really read it, Ben! It's very uneven, but ultimately a must-read for any serious fantasy/horror fan. And he explicitly presents her as a shapeshifting vampire, which is partly why I assumed the connection. And, good as your book is turning out to be, if you find something in MacDonald's that you really would like to incorporate in yours, it's never too late to tweak until it's on the bookstore shelf. ;-)

P.S.--I posted about it here some time ago.
