Last Year's Reading

94. Black Butler, #7. Manga I've been following.

95. Manuscript for Tales of the Sleepless City, Miskatonic River Press's forthcoming collection of Call of Cthulhu scenarios set in New York City. Delicious!

96. Manuscript for Horror for the Holidays, Miskatonic River Press's latest fiction anthology. Oddly, I don't generally seek out horror fiction to read, but this is solid.

97. Amaranthine RPG. I really want to try a campaign of this one. What's stopping me? The campaign I'm running, the two larps I'm writing, the pbem I'm running, the pbem I'm playing in... But we'll see if I can make this happen in 2012.

98. Alarums & Excursions #434.

99. Various Victoriana short supplements: Hounds of Hate, The Marylebone Mummy, and Rise of the Red God

100. Manuscript for House of Cards, a forthcoming RPG, urban fantasy, solid, tarot-based mechanics. I can probably make a one shot of this one happen in 2012.

101. Profane Miracles, a scenario for Esoterrorists which I'm currently running for Kerberos Club Fate edition. It's astonishing how well the themes on the story / human level fit in to the Victorian world.

102. Leverage RPG. I've not yet seen the show this is based on, but I think I can use at least the heist-building mechanics. Using the rest might be trickier, as, ideally, one wants one PC for each major role, which means five players is ideal.

103. Little Girl Lost, a scenario for Esoterrorists. I'm looking forward to part two, which I hope will be released next year.

104. The Woman Warrior, by Maxine Hong Kingston. This one was recommended at a panel at Arisia last year, a panel on "non-genre" works for the sf-and-f fan. It's quite good. I'm guessing it had more of an impact when it first came out, but I was way too young for it then.

105. Alarums & Excursions #435

106, and the final book I read in 2011. The Freedom Maze, by Delia Sherman. Solid YA about a girl in 1960 who finds herself in 1860. 1960 is less than a decade before I was born, and yet, in some ways, as alien as 1860.
