  1. Well, it's taken its time, but a near-final version of The Dare has been released to backers in PDF. Looks pretty good too. Love the faux-VHS box covers. Gobs of new material. It'll be nice to see this out in the wilds again after 25-ish years or so (talking about the original appearance, not how long the Kickstarter has taken...).
  2. I like how you can wear the Yellow Sign mask with the design either side up and still be right (technically).
  3. I think this is more of a case of "Thank you Moon Design".
  4. While I agree this project is GROSSLY, even RIDICULOUSLY overdue, I'm not sure what more you could want from SHP beyond a refund. At least he's willing to do that much.
  5. Caveat: I haven't read much of King for decades, but for awhile there I was an ardent follower (basically until people stopped editing him and his books got bloated and painful to read -- maybe he got better). Anyway, Pet Sematary was pretty dark and disturbing, and for awhile was my favorite King novel. Salem's Lot and Shining are also good. You might also try some of the short stories from books like Night Shift and Skeleton Crew. As others have suggested, I'd avoid tackling things like The Stand and the Dark Tower series, as they are pretty long treks, and if you've gotten through a few King books you'll probably notice more of the easter eggs in the Dark Tower series. Skip The Tommyknockers altogether -- watch the 1960s Hammer film Quatermass and the Pit/Five Million Years to Earth, as that's where Stevie got the idea -- and Nigel Kneale did a helluva lot better.
  6. Evidently YSDC is only open to applications for new memberships on Mondays. No, I'm not kidding. No, I don't know why. So next Monday try stopping by setting up an account. No, I don't know how you do that. And no, this doesn't seem like a very rational way to host an allegedly important arena for discussion of Lovecraftian games and fiction. https://www.yog-sothoth.com/
  7. Please DO NOT encourage further delay of this project. I've been waiting ten $#@!ing years already, and I'll probably be $#@!ing dead if it gets delayed that much longer. My advice is, since they are actually two VERY different settings, that someone should do the Puritan era on its own. It would certainly make for a nice book, covering all of Lovecraft Co in the Witch Scare years. Or take it back to the early settlement years, and/or cover the rest of the country being settled. Hell, go further than that, and you could cover the Spanish settlement of Mexico and So America. There's no reason you couldn't kick in a whole other series of Early American books. But please, let's not even TALK about delaying CoLoCo further.
  8. And damned if Mike M didn't ninja me on that reply.
  9. Someday (maybe) there will be a published version of Colonial Lovecraft Country, written and submitted to Sixtystone Press several years ago. It's set in the 1750s rather than the Puritan era, so as to make use of a number of important events in the fictional Lovecraft Country timeline which culminates in the raid on Joseph Curwen's farm in the 1770s. The line consists of a sourcebook, adventure anthology, and a campaign dealing with the actions of Curwen and his confederates.
  10. Sorry, not able to take/post pics. Basically, the test printings were exactly the same thing as the final versions, but printed on cheaper paper; even the cover was just a normal weight. Plus I think they had a notice at the bottom of the contents page that this was a test printing for contributors in a total of X copies. I think those test runs were less than 20 copies or so.
  11. Yeah, I just checked and three and four both have test printings, as I still have mine. These were given to contributors, apparently, which is why I still have mine. I still have my 1st print of issue 1 as well, but it looks like I'm missing my normal printing of #3, as all I have left is the test print copy. Oh well, ain't like I use anyway, but it's nice to have a "complete" set.
  12. I'm pretty sure issue 3 does as well, and maybe 4? I know several of those early issues had test runs, as up until a few years ago I still had all of my copies.
  13. Don't sweat it, man. At least it wasn't a "sneak peak" kinda thing.
  14. You mean Lewis Carroll, don't you? 😉
  15. Well, I have reasons to want to be Colonialed, but I'm not holdin' me effin' breath.
