Book One, p. 59, under A Continent of Call of Cthulhu: "There remain numerous scenarios not only set in Europe, but also released by European publishers that remain as yet un-translated including those from Editions Sans-Détour (France) and Pegasus Spiele (Germany - among others." This should be "There remain numerous scenarios not only set in Europe, but also released by European publishers that remain as yet un-translated including those from Editions Sans-Détour (France) and Pegasus Spiele (Germany) - among others." Close parentheses after "Germany" in other words.

Book One, p. 61: "Poe set tales in Paris, perhaps most famously "The Murders of the Rue Morgue"." The tale in question is actually titled "The Murders in the Rue Morgue".

Similarly, on p. 62, under Italy: "Italy was not visited much by Lovecraft's circle, although there is Robert Bloch's "The Fiddlers Fee"." The correct title is "The Fiddler's Fee" (with apostrophe).

Book One, p. 64, second column: "In Bosnia-Herzegovina, the blautsauger carries a piece of earth ..." As Bosnia-Herzegovina was a part of Yugoslavia during the 1920s, this should be included under the entry for Yugoslavia above (like Slovenia, Dalmatia and Croatia above and Montenegro, Serbia and Macedonia below) - so Bosnia-Herzegovina should not be in bold face.

Book One, p. 72, upper plan: "BROMM CUPBOARD" should be "BROOM CUPBOARD". The similar plan on p. 27 is fine; use that one instead.

Book I, p. 6, paragraph 2: the parenthetical phrase "(partially based upon..." is never closed. I assume the closing parenthesis should appear after "renditions".

Book IV, p. 193, title: should "Player's Map" not be "Players' Map", indicating more than one player?
