Jon recommends the Alien Minute Podcast – it’s one of several “Movie Minute” podcasts that dissect and discuss movies one minute at a time. If you’re a fan of the sci-fi horror film, Alien, then I highly suggest that you check out this podcast.

Chaosium has announce a new partnership with EDGE Entertainment. In a comprehensive new licensing deal, EDGE will publish Chaosium’s roleplaying games Call of Cthulhu and RuneQuest in both French and Spanish. Founded in 1999, EDGE Entertainment is based in Seville, Spain and Toulouse, France. A long-standing partner of the Asmodee Group studio Fantasy Flight Games, in early 2017 EDGE formally became part of the Asmodee Group. EDGE is the current licensee for Call of Cthulhu in Spanish.

Gatsby and the Great Race @ GaryCon – Party like it’s 1930! The amazing multi-keeper and multi-table Call of Cthulhu gaming event, Gatsby and the Great Race, by Paul Fricker, is being run at this year’s GaryCon on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 2PM. If you’re playing in this game, keep an ear out for me… I’ll be there… kinda.  

Dean Englehardt of Cthulhu Reborn has done a 5-part round up of Cthulhu news over 2018.
