Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.102: The Blasphemous Tome
Well, the British postal system is certainly proving helpful with content at the moment - on arriving home this evening I found an envelope awaiting me containing this: the first issue of The Blasphemous Tome, a new Lovecraftian fanzine. Produced by The Good Friends of Jackson Elias (an excellent Lovecraft/Call of Cthulhu rpg podcast), The Blasphemous Tome harkens back to the heady pre-Internet days of Dagon and early issues of The Unspeakable Oath - as well as various of the Necronomicon Press publications - when fanzines were pretty much the connective tissue of the Lovecraft scene. I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but it does look very, very good - and whilst there appears to be s solid Call of Cthulhu rpg focus, The Blasphemous Tome also looks to contain Lovecraftian film and book reviews - as well as a helpful guide to beard care for the hirsute! Unfortunately, it looks like the zine is limited to 100 copies and is only being made available to Patreon supporters of The Good Friends of Jackson Elias.
