We have a voice mail from Mikkel, (BarlOwe
on the forums).
He asked who we thought were some of our favorite underrated horror authors. What resulted was a lengthy discussion with the following mentions:
The Double Shadow Podcast
about Clark Ashton Smith
Laird Barron The Imago Sequence
Dean Koonz Phantoms
is particularly Lovecraftian.
Weston Ochse (pronounced “Oaks”) Empire of Salt
John Horner Jacobs Southern Gods
W H Pugmire
Adam Scott Glancy
Delta Green Books and stories

about M.R. James
We got an E-Mail from Shaun telling us about the SCP. SCP stands for Secure Contain Protect.
I just recently stumbled upon this site and it has upwards of 1000 unique items, living things and even people that could make for a great horror or CoC game addition. Each entry has a short description written in the style of a censored lab report and normally includes several logs that make for good story building elements.
It’s a blending of Warehouse 13
and Delta Green
There was a mention of a Delta Green free scenario
The base rules for the new Delta Green game are from Mongoose Publishing
‘s Legend system
For another podcast mention, Dan brings up Ken & Robin Talk About Stuff. A podcast by Ken Hite
and Robin D. Laws

Murph was on an episode of their podcast
to discuss the story.
We have the next lecture from the Miskatonic University History Department, but not from Dr. Gerard. This is the first Field Trip lecture, from Ben Wenum — on the topic of ‘The Witchfinder General’.
Doctor Gerard is looking for people interested in recording History Segment “Field Trips” that are recorded on location.
Anyone who wants to do something like that, talk to Dr. G
. He’d love to get some more voices and field recordings into the Hist segments.
The Scarifyers episode
with the Witchfinder General is episode 3- For King and Country.
In the Special Collections Vault, we talk about all the possibilities from the Revelations of Glaaki
The Severn Valley
