Call for Submissions: the Arkham Gazette #4 (and beyond)

SHP_logoNow that our Kickstarter backers have received at least a rough version of issue #3 (with great appreciation for their patience!), I think it is time start working on future issues of the Arkham Gazette. (Those curious about issue #3 should listen to my interview with the Miskatonic University Podcast; watch this blog for the issue’s official release)

After polling our Kickstarter backers regarding the topics for future issues, we discovered that while there was no general consensus as to the topic for the next issue, there were a few topics that attracted more attention than others.  Here then is a list of ideas generated by our Kickstarter backers and other supporters (as well as from dream sendings from the lands beyond the Seventy Steps and the Chamber of Flame); just because something does not appear hear DOES NOT mean we are not interested!  These are suggestions only; should we have a great set of articles unrelated to these topics, we will happily publish a potpourri issue happily.  (Links are for reference purposes only).
