* I've been nominated for two Origins Awards: for Trail of Cthulhu (Best Roleplaying Game) and Tour de Lovecraft: The Tales (Best Non-Fiction). Given the high caliber works on display in both categories, this is one occasion where it actually is just an honor to be nominated.
* Topically drifting back to La Belle Cité, tomorrow gbsteve and I go in search of Nicolas Flamel's house. And I, most likely, gawp like a tourist the whole way there. I shall have to dine alone that night, as the worthy Dempsey will be deserting me in the afternoon to go to a creative writing class in London. The Rue d'Auseil will have one last chance to draw me into le void cosmique.
