It's been a while, I moved but never fear, still you can find the wit and wisdom (or at least the links) from the Yoggers Sunday Chats, chats you are more then welcome to join. Just as you are welcome to reply and comment to these links.


Dennisâ€â€a slightly funny looking 32-year old with a penchant for games and an overbite He also writes things for Delta Green on the web take a look at what he does.


Also he just finished “Insylum†which you should read.



Armitage House, a fine seller of Cthulhu and mythos tomes, they are sold out of “The King In Yellow†though.



Tsathoggua according to the marvel universe



America in the stone age, make jokes as you will.



"New Weird" - are you aware of this subgenre? Several people say it is the future of Science Fiction.


China Miéville, Weird Fiction Author


And more about Mr. Miéville, I hear he is worth reading


Here China talks about blockbusters, movies and the dangers of capitalism and CGI graphics.



This is the town Pfizer built, it's in Brooklyn.



a new book by Kenneth Grant



The Corporation, a documentary.



Ever read "Ancient Images" by Ramsey Campbell? I hear it’s good (and cheap).



Necronompoloy, sort of like the mythos edition of Monopoly.

I bring more links.

Also censes data of yog which is now I believe 33 members off.



The Freemasons were really into their Pythagorean and Platonic mathematics, sort of like gamers.



Victoriana a gaslight RPG.


And a list of games taking place from the gaslight era, including web resources.



Robert Bloch denies and confess to all



The Fanac Fan History Project, a site dedicated to the preservation of information about science fiction. Sort of like in “On The Beach†where the humans are etching their history into plates of glass to leave behind but about Science Fiction instead.



Free wargames for all to play and enjoy, including “The Battle of Seattle.â€Â


The map for the Battle of Seattle



Anyone who talks about wargames will eventually bring up Games Workshop, it’s just a constant.



Joe loves crappy movies, but not “Bewitchedâ€Â



If Yog-Sothoth.com was going to become some kind of game this is the first board you would use. Or maybe the one from Kill Dr. Lucky?



The many faces of Café Yog




From the unofficial Yog censes:

As of chat time Sunday night Yog was 1950 members strong

891 people are on the forums and have never posted.

Let us talk about the future


"The Singularity is this enormous turd that Vernor Vinge crapped into the punchbowl of sf writing, and now nobody wanting to take a drink can ignore it."


Or a reasonable prediction for the future?


And more explanations:



Time Wave Zero DOS program by Peter Meyer



Charles Stross, check out his new book, Accelerando, here:



Say “Hi†to the future, I hear there are some good talks by McKenna on this



Pataobsfucation: the ability not to be shocked during a complete re-write of physics. And more on the future.



In the future robots won’t need humans.



The Futurist Manifesto, a bold new world.



Behold, Cthulhu fiction by one of our own.



Dungeons and Dragons before all the editions advances, and how it ruined games for the 90’s.



And bonus points to whoever can catch the link making it's second showing here.

I find the Yog Chat links very interesting and often quite useful. While I can't always make it into the chats on Sunday it's great to see something of what's gone on.


Thanks again for doing these, and I hope to see more people in chat!

For as few links as we had from Sunday it took me my sweet time to get them here. And I would like to pimp the AfterNow bit, it's quite a good radio show.



Ever read "Cemetary Dance" it’s a horror magazine, the cover art looks pretty cool too.



Three Mandalas, you may have to paste the links into your address bar. Have you ever wondered what a Cthulhu Mythos mandala would look like with Azothoth in the middle and the other things spiraling off?





Space Highways, because when the stars are right you want the fastest rout to a planet not infected with the forces of Cthulhu et al.


This is a similar idea but unlike the first article I do not understand any of the math involved at all.



Tales From the AfterNow: transcript for episode I. If you were trapped in a future gone wrong, how would you try to stop it?
