Island of Ignorance – The Third Cthulhu Companion. Golden Goblin Press setzen dazu an, 30 Jahre nach dem ersten Companion (1983) und Fragments of Fear (1995) diese Reihe fortzusetzen.
Der Kickstarter von Oscar Rios benötigt bis zum 29. Mai 2013 mindestens 9000 $.
Ich gestehe an Fragments of Fear erinnere ich mich noch schemenhaft, wenngleich Fantasy und Science Fiction ganz weit oben auf der Agenda stand.
Schauergeschichten von H. P.Lovecraft oder das Rollenpiel Call of Cthulhu (damals Auf Cthulhus Spur, 1986) folgten etwas später.
Die Inhaltangabe erinnert mich irgendwie an den Unspeakable Oath (oder umgekehrt).

Consumption by Brian M. Sammons – The investigators are drawn into a nightmarish sequel to an H. P. Lovecraft story.
