Lovecraftian Playing Cards

Our weird illustrator Darrell Tutchton and weird graphic designer Andrew Leman teamed together to created a fabulous deck of Lovecraftian playing cards. It’s a 52 card deck (plus 2 jokers) of standard playing cards, but the face cards depict Cthulhu, Shub Niggurath and Nyarlathotep; the ace of spades has an Elder Sign and Lovecraft himself is the joker. Poker, gin, hearts, go-fish, and all traditional card games will eat away a bit more of your sanity with this deck!

Eddy, Lovecraft, and Houdini … oh my

I enjoy getting emails and comments from the readers of Gnostalgia. Well, for the most part, some of you people are disturbed. At any rate, I got an interesting email from the grandson of  C. M. Eddy Jr, Jim Dyer.

Jim wanted to share with the readers of Gnostalgia a link of interest. Jim has put together a small publishing company and printed some of the works of  C. M. Eddy.

For those of you who are wondering about the strange title. Eddy was a friend of both Lovecraft, and Houdini.
