The Magic Issue is ON SALE NOW!

I love telling you guys first, because you're the best!

Buy it now! http://crawlfanzine.blogspot.com/p/buy-now.html

It was close, but I made my own deadline of getting #3 on sale before the end of the month! Better late than never, right? Heh.

Anyway, subscriptions will be in the mail tomorrow, and regular orders will be fulfilled ASAP! I had content and quality problems, then printing delays... but it's all done and will be in your mailbox soon!

Enjoy!

Here's a bigger version of the back page (it's been modified slightly from the old image):

Huzzah! Wonder if folks will note the Appendix N inspirations and movie inspirations in the new familiar entries? :)

Cover looks neat, can't wait for it to arrive. 8)

Kind of mean, though, showing us what will be put in the mail soon. That means we have to wait several days. :(

Whoever can recognize the Appendix N and movie origins of at least two of the new familiars will win an official Chufty Badge. One of the familiars even covers two Appendix N sources. :)

You're on! Except for a brief excursion to The Night Circus (because my partner and her brother both thought I'd like it) and Charlotte's Web (because I can't read Conan to my 5-year-old daughter), I've been doing precious little reading other than Appendix N authors since I read the final release of DCC. I've re-read authors I know well, and I've introduced myself to authors I either didn't know as well, or at all. I even carry around a list of books I am looking for (and picked up three of them at BMV next to the World's Biggest Book Store today!).

Here's my two: Poul Anderson's The Broken Sword (rat w/human face that hides well) and Fritz Lieber's The Power of the Puppets (Jester like Punch). Do I get my Chufty Badge?

If the clockwork familiar was an owl, i would say CLASH OF THE TITANS !! I second RC's picks. Good issue by the way. My hats off to all of you who made it.

Congratulations, you do indeed! :) Plus, human-faced rat things also appear in Leiber's Ill Met in Lankhmar (Slivikin) and Lovecraft's The Dream in the Witch House (Brown Jenkin), the floating animate grimoire was a nod to Raimi's Army of Darkness flick, the clawed crawling hand is a standard horror trope (so much so it led to Thing in The Addams Family), and there are other nods too.

I almost made a clockwork owl ala Bubo, but decided against it.

You can never go wrong with some good Harryhausen! I though of the Necronomicon biting ash's hand. Too funny!

I am actually re-reading Swords and Deviltry right now (among several other Appendix N books. I was aware of the Lovecraft connection as well, but having read Poul Anderson recently.....it was the first that came to mind. It took a while to locate The High Crusade, The Broken Sword, and Three Hearts and Three Lions, but I am very glad I did!

I thought about Thing, but dismissed TAF as not being Appendix N. Shoulda known better! :lol:

I ordered Crawl #1 last week,like Monday or Tuesday I think and still no Crawl!

I'm now getting strange looks from the mailman as I dashed to the mailbox,through it opened and then cast him a glare that was meant to say "you probably have MY Crawl and are reading it Don't YOU?".

Dang mailmen are always reading my mail orders for a few days before I get them,I just know it.
