Hi, I'm quite new to bizarro fiction (though I'm a long time fan of weird fiction and surrealism). So I wonder what you consider to be the three best must read bizarro books?

Also as the new guy in the neighbourhood I brought a gift that I hope is to your taste: I've written a short surreal hypertext story / choose your own adventure where you explore a psychedelic body horror wonderland.

Hi everyone, I'm a new member of the group and fairly new to RQ and Glorantha as well.

Does anyone know if the Cult Compendium includes everything from Cults of Prax, Cults of Terror and Trollpak or only specific parts?

If I want all three supplements should I look for the individual books or will I find it all in the Compendium?
Buy this product on! Over 40 religions originally printed in Cults of Prax, Cults of Terror, and Trollpak are detailed here. A guideline chapter shows how to design your own new cults. To round out the book, Rick also added in Gloranthan cults from White Wolf and Different Worlds magazines. Associated background articles from Wyrms Footnotes and similar sources give you a complete breakdown on how rune magic, spirit magic, elementals...

Whatever Russia did or didn’t do, the idea that its interference is what cost Hillary Clinton the election is utterly ludicrous and absolutely false. What cost Hillary Clinton the election can be summed up by a single line from Sen. Chuck Schumer, soon to be the country’s highest-ranking Democrat: “For every blue-collar Democrat we lose in western Pennsylvania, we will pick up two moderate Republicans in the suburbs in Philadelphia, and you can repeat that in Ohio and Illinois and Wisconsin.” As it turned out, he was fatally wrong. It wasn’t the Russians who told the Democratic Party to abandon the working-class people of all races who used to form its electoral base. It wasn’t the Russians who decided to run a presidential campaign that offered people nothing but blackmail—“vote for us or Dangerous Donald wins.” The Russians didn’t come up with awful tin-eared catchphrases like “I’m with her” or “America is already great.” The Russians never ordered the DNC to run one of the most widely despised people in the country, simply because she thought it was her turn. The Democrats did that all by themselves.
You might remember a time, back before the election, when we all still lived in the real world and Donald Trump was an unhinged conspiracy theorist. Ne ...

I don’t have to remind you that we’re living in chaotic, unpredictable and even frightening times… hell, even browsing through news headlines can make you want to crawl under a rock and hide for a year or so (that is, unless you’re afraid of creatures who also like to live under rocks).

Well its a good thing that the DNC put forward the realistic centrist candidate. That really paid off. Nothing drums up massive support as a lesser evil.

Hollow Earth? Pshh. Everybody knows flat Earth is the new black. The idiot scientists must have gotten an echo off the edge of the world and in a typically roundheaded way though it was a crater.

Anyway. I'm feeling slightly "saucer shaped entrance" -curious but am afraid to Google for it.

If you're conscious and over seventeen, you probably have pretty clear expectations for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story : a flashy, well-made and not terribly intricate action movie featuring a young hero with a tragic and/or mysterious past, a multitude of Easter eggs for die-hard fans, ...
