The catalog now includes reprints by Heinlein, Ni…

In the Lovcraftian universe there are very few rules.

He then suggested I read the works of Matthew Davenport and so I did and he joins us on t…

Well, it's been quite a journey but we're finally here: Last Human is finished. I don't think we realised when we started this endeavour just how interesting the revisiting of Doug's solo novel would be, but I think we've all come out of the other side a little wiser and a lot more weary of acronyms.
