Just listened to CBC #5, where these cards were read. Kudos to Marty for saying "Eyjafjallajökull" effortlessly.

 

For the record, "Jarocha" is pronounced as if the vowels were all short-A sounds: "Ja-ra-ka".  (No relation to the Mexican word "Jarocha"; mine is a corruption of something Polish.)

Ack!  neorxnawang is actually Jeff Moeller, not Jason Williams!  Jeff wrote The Sevenfold Path.  Sorry for the misattribution.

Unfortunately, by now, I think the postcard I sent you guys from Berlin at the very beginning of August must've gotten lost... There's two cards from Mexico on their way, though, that should take about 3-4 weeks to get there.

More postcards posted! (Some already read out on CBC.)

 

A card from Galbraith in Providence, Rhode Island. It appears that the John Hay Library holds more Cthulhu material than just HPL's archive...

A New Year and more postcards! (Though in fairness one dates from the end of 2015.  ;-))

A report from Paris by Yoggie correspondent, yockenthwaite.

 

Journeys to Notre Dame and Shakespeare and Company ensue. Can you have too many books? Looking at the shelves of Innsmouth House we'd have to say, no.... ;-)

I was expecting this card - because I sent it. ;-)

 

Any good Investigator knows it's always good practice to write home regularly, just in case anything untoward happens, especially in the land of Trolls...

Do send more cards, and save me from writing to myself....!

A group of cards we received a little while ago (and were read out on Cthulhu Breakfast Club) but haven't been put up here until now due to waiting for a scanner software update that would work with my Operating System once again.

 

First, a card from yockenthwaite with an interesting question - how many dogs do appear in Call of Cthulhu scenarios?

Next, KeeperInYellow visited the place of an old Texan friend of Lovecraft's.

Finally, BeachRubble writes further of the work of Edward Gorey (in Noodler's La Reine Mauve ink).

More Mythos mail had made its way to Innsmouth House (though likely by some more leisurely routes than usual over the holiday period).

 

We received a large card from PhotoNAFS (the scan doesn't do it full justice) sent from the "pearl of the south Pacific" and only a hop, skip and a jump from there to...

Also received in the Innsmouth House mailbox, The Grognard Files 2017 Annual!

 

An unashamed nostalgia-fest from dirkdice with a loving nod to a certain British roleplaying magazine of the '70s & '80s, and featuring a Russ Nicholson cover...

Atzompa and San José Mogote, both lovely trips to take from Oaxaca city's taxi terminal. If the San José Mogote "museum" is closed, just ask a villager if someone can open it for you.

 

Did you notice the card took 4 months to get to you... I have no idea what happened. We posted it at a fairly large post office in Mexico City.

They can take a while, but we eventually get them!

 

Here's two cards received from Buchhalter:

 

Postcard #222 and trip to Naples, but alas work precluded further exploration of the Catacombs (however I hear the pizza's good).

Another trip, this time to Wales, and Dolbadarn Castle. I fear B. may have arrived too late!
