Well at this moment I'd like to thank my family for putting up with me, my imaginary agent for always being there and my keyboard, for without whom, I'd never be able to prove that the virtual pen is mightier than the virtual sword - it doesn't half come up sharp if you swing it right.
Joking apart, to top such a weird and wonderful anthology of tales is an unexpected treat. I got a 75 and now a 300, I can retire a happy man.
The image spoke to me of madness and I intend no pun. I enjoy Lovecraft and all those who followed in his frame like August Derleth et al. Their tales of things beyond ken and the ramifications on sanity are in my opinion far more horrifying than any slasher book or film.
The 300 also came at an ideal point. I'm the middle of writing a Lovecraftian role play game to run for a group of friends I've known and gamed with for over 30 years now. It takes something off-kilter these days to get them thinking and I've definitely got a few tricks up my writing sleeve - shhh, don't tell them but I've collected some sound effects to go with the descriptions

And, remember. If you have a damp patch on your wall, get someone in to look at it - I've often found that builders have firm, almost concrete like, foundations in reality - apart from their quotes
