I went to New York City last week on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday was spent looking over the manuscript collections at the New York Public Library for a potential future project. I did not accomplish my goal of figuring out how to reproduce the material I wanted, but I did agree to write a new article for an upcoming anthology. Almost the entire discussion process occurred by Facebook, which was a new one for me.
After finishing my work for the day, I stopped by The Compleat Strategist to round out my Cthulhu RPG collection. Among my purchases were The Armitage Files, Arkham Detective Tales, The Laundry RPG, Cthulhu 101, Realms of Crawling Chaos, Age of Cthulhu 5, and some others I can’t remember at the moment. I then stopped at Tsampa Restaurant to meet with – no kidding – Warlock Asylum, with whom I had a great conversation and handed off some Mesopotamian anti-witchcraft literature. I spent the rest of the evening with Call of Cthulhu author Oscar Rios, watching Sons of Anarchy.
Wednesday was much less exciting for blog readers, save for the discovery that my bank thinks me purchasing $200 worth of roleplaying games is suspicious. They must not be paying attention. Other than that, it was mostly librarian association meetings and the like. Between public transportation and traffic, I managed to make it home after seven hours. I’ll try not to do that again.
