I have a couple reviews and a response to Jake Stratton-Kent to write, but we have some unfinished business to which we must attend.
In response to my last post on the Cult of Cthulhu, Darrick Dishaw excused his comments on Grant by saying that they were simultaneously a joke and a prophecy of Simon’s imminent demise. I don’t even know how that’s supposed to work, but I’m going to let it slide.
Warlock, however, was good enough to point out this interview with Darrick in which he mentions me. (You can start it at 1:35.)
I have to admit, my first reaction was, “Wow! Nobody’s announced they were trying to kill me with magic since 1999!” That was rapidly followed with, “Sheesh! Hasn’t everyone moved on to railing against me in mass market paperbacks?”

UPDATE: Darrick says in the comments: “I put a curse on you way back in 2004… Why don’t you blog about something worthwhile such as man’s ultimate destiny, the terror of our situation, or how Yog-Sothothery relates to the Fourth Way?”
Let’s see. 2004, blogging the terror of our situation… Ah! This should do it.
