Website Reviews from R’yleh has posted a review about The Cthulhu Hack: Convicts & Cthulhu – which just recently picked up Best Copper Seller on DriveThruRPG (which is no mean feat for a Pay What You Want, as only paid purchases count!). You may see certain comments about the adventure therein and use of the term “faintly ridiculous”, which on the face of it is not a bad thing as a one-time writer for PARANOIA. I could have done with more ridiculous at times, faint or otherwise.
Anyway, I leave this list here, on the off chance you care to take a look, because even Fake News is news of a sort and fiction has a heritage of playing with alternate timelines, strange theories and unfounded rumours. Really, many writers of Lovecraftian fiction still rely on strange tales and urban legends, weird claims and left-field theories, as the source of their work.

On another note, the print run of The Cthulhu Hack: Convicts & Cthulhu runs low and will not be reprinted. At the moment, you can get a copy if you buy all the Cthulhu Hack books or one of the multi-book box sets. The PDF will remain available through RPGNow and DriveThruRPG.

Cthulhu Hack: C&C is awesome, in my humble opinion. And I don’t think you can ever go wrong speculating wildly on Australian history, as witnessed by this recent story. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2017/may/28/australian-convict-pirates-in-japan-evidence-of-1830-voyage-unearthed
Picked this up from DriveThruRPG. A shame that it seems to be out of print in hardcopy.
I will have to dig through my back stocks. I might have a copy left, but that’s it — probably only one remains. I suspect that I will need to re-write it at some point to extricate myself from the association with Convicts & Cthulhu. I couldn’t charge more than cost for the book — and that doesn’t work from a business perspective. A physical book is never only the cost of printing — travel to conventions, time spent promoting, etc. Anyway… I will see what I can do — and if I find a spare copy, I will make it available.
That would be ace. Just let me know.
