My new blog is up. Shooting Dice is about "Guns and Gaming," but also features related content. One of the first articles is about "Lovecraft and His Guns."

 

Cheers

More recent articles include "The Investigator's Load", which talks about the kit of a typical investigator both in Lovecraft's own writing and for a more modern one, and "Disarming in Call of Cthulhu", which examines the rules for disarming in Call of Cthulhu, Sixth Edition, and Call of Cthulhu, Seventh Edition, by applying them to a scene in the film The Maltese Falcon.

My latest article is called "Lovecraft's Investigators and Their Guns". It's the first part of a series of articles going through Lovecraft's stories for their gun use.

The only thing lacking is a coupla' photographs of the weapons,here and there. I'd love to see what the German Flamethrowers look like, for instance.

Excellent as always. I'm awaiting an entry of one of my fav period weapons - one that I actually got to hold from our armory at State Police Headquarters. The esteemed 'Lewis Gun'.
