R.I.P. William Peter Blatty

Author William Peter Blatty has died at the age of 89.  I first read The Exorcist in high School and not being religious, I thought that it made a decent horror story, but not much else.  His work certainly didn't capture my interest like Lovecraft.  I seem to recall that my mother had been so disturbed by the book when she read it in the 1970s that she burned it.  I'm not sure where my copy is, but maybe I'll read it again someday.

Now that's a book!

My DCC 4th printing Kickstarter rewards arrived today from +Goodman Games !  I'm so happy that I sprung for the leatherbound edition.  Number 85 of 400.  It is one sweet book.  Check out that awesome +Doug Kovacs cover!  It's got a place waiting for it beside my Grimtooth's Ultimate Traps Collection.
This is indeed a tome.

Signed to boot!
I haven't even mentioned all of the extras that came with it.  The pad of zero level character sheets is amazing too.  A fantastic game and a fantastic Kickstarter!

Sunset: 7 January 2017

This was the sunset last night.  6 minutes later it was far more impressive, but by then I was in a bad position for the shot, so this will have to do.
