CYCLONOPEDIA might be the single weirdest book I have ever read. A pseudo-academic Cthulhuian treatise on the Middle East, oil, and demonology, it is by no means for everyone (and isn’t really totally for me, to be honest). Read the first two chapters: if you’re enthralled, you’ll love it. If not, move on to brighter things.

SOLACE, on the other hand, is a game that you will get pretty much from the word go. It’s a vertical shooter about grief. Simple enough, right?

And, in music, the Future Times label mix for Resident Advisor is sassy as all get out, the Traversable Wormhole RA podcast is good but drags a bit, and I myself have something like four sets in the pipeline. More as it breaks.
