I'm not sure if I'll be able to record it but I do know a few people who have actual plays up.

Lots of excellent stories and the art in them is truly the stuff of nightmares. I read my copies into pulp, so I need to get another set for my daughter.

Oh yeah!! I just had a daughter guys! Two weeks old today :cthulhudance:

Congrats! Also, awesome catch on those books...I remember those from bookfairs past, as well. I picked one up, along with a sweet Lamborghini poster (so lame), in grade four.

Thanks!

There were a few legitimately creepy stories in there. A lot of urban legend tales as well, but the art is really what sells those books.
