Echoes of the Past, the first Mythos Pack for the Path to Carcosa Cycle has been announced for Arkham Horror: The Card Game (AH:TCG). I’m really excited about this. AH:TCG is currently one of my favorite games. New mechanics will be introduced to AH: TCG in the Path to Carcosa Cycle. If you can get a hold of a copy of the base set, PICK THIS GAME UP!

An article discussing the book, Queer Universes: Sexualities in Science Fiction, came across my RSS feed earlier today and I thought it looked interesting. From the Amazon product description:
Disputes over the meaning and practice of sexuality have become increasingly central to cultural self-definition. It is hardly surprising, then, that science fiction, the province of new physical and psychological frontiers, has taken up the task of imagining a diverse range of queer and not-so-queer futures. Queer Universes is a landmark investigation into these contemporary and historical representations of gender and sexualities—including Wendy Gay Pearson’s award-winning essay on reading science fiction queerly, as well as essays discussing “sextrapolation” in New Wave science fiction, “stray penetration” in William Gibson’s cyberpunk works, the queering of nature in ecofeminist sci-fi, and the radical challenges posed to conventional science fiction in the work of important writers such as Samuel R. Delaney, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Joanna Russ. In addition, this distinguished volume offers interviews with acclaimed science fiction writers and essays from scholars and science fiction giants alike.
Sounds like it could be an interesting read.
