Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos News

The response to Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos has been extremely positive. The corresponding starter adventure for the book, Silence from Sommerisk is now available online. Kudos to the fantastic David Ross and a number of others for that. I edited both products and am quite pleased with how they turned out.

Game Trade Magazine Article on Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos

Great Game Trade Magazine Article on Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos, which should be arriving imminently in the mailboxes of backers. I’m thrilled with how this book turned out. I can’t be certain, but if I had to guess, I’d say that I invested more into this project than any single other RPG endeavor of my career (editing and to a much lesser extent development, if anyone is wondering). Few game companies can claim to have “fans,” but Petersen Games is one of them and their supporters are effervescent. I’ve never seen anything like it.

I’m super stoked tell everyone about my Mutants & Masterminds short story that is now available from Green Ronin’s Nisaba Press, via their Tales of Earth-Prime line of fiction. “Everyone: This is Kevin” is the first in a serial about a young robot superhero boy who goes to school for the first time. It’s been incredible writing in this setting and about this character and I’m so happy to have this opportunity.

Review of Sacred Band by Joseph D. Carriker Jr.

I cannot recommend enough this fabulous superhero novel by friend and colleague Joseph D. Carriker Jr., a force in the gaming world. Everyone with an interest in superhero and queer fiction owes it to themselves to pick up and devour Sacred Band immediately. This is an expanded version of my review on Amazon.

Sacred Band follows the journey of Rusty, a young super who discovers that an online friend of his from the Ukraine has gone missing. Rusty must team with idols, friends, and former lovers to learn what happened, and in the process, exposes hypocrisy and truth.

The novel is a revelation in queer fiction. Joe has been writing wonderful games for many years and now we are all very fortunate that he has lent his voice to fiction. There is not nearly enough fiction with strong queer characters on the market today, especially in the area of speculative fiction. While there is a great deal available in the MM romance market, and that has its place, we need more fiction written by queer writers about queers characters, but where romance is not the sole focus.

This book delivers a story that is timely, entertaining, emotional, funny, and well written. Joe is on the front lines of the queer gaming and geek communities, fighting the good fight for representation and diversity, and his efforts are on display in full force here. He has a sense of what we want to read and what is at the heart of our struggles and delivers those things on the page. I can’t wait to see future installments (crosses fingers) in the world of Sacred Band and look forward to Joe’s other fiction endeavors.
