Cthulhoid Bits and Pieces

The Sherlock Holmes/Cthulhu game "The Awakened" showed up on my doorstep recently (thanks to frabjousdave), and last night was the second session of the "Tattered King" campaign. At the rate I'm losing San, I'll be rolling up a new character in a couple weeks. I'm not sure that means I'm "winning" the san-loss race, but it is entertaining.

What else? Saw a previously unknown set of JRR Tolkien's notes on The Hobbit yesterday, as Mr. Rateliff was sent them by Christopher T. Impressive to see the professor's handwriting, even if his scrawl was pretty bad.

The great Book Purge is almost complete. Something like 8 boxes of books are gone from the shelves and off to Twice-Sold Tales, University Bookstore, and other good homes. Oddly enough, there's still plenty of books around the house to keep me company.
