Half a Review – Black Sun Reich

When I was invited to review Black Sun Reich I was most intrigued. Occultist Nazis scouting pre-Columbian ruins for ancient treasures sounded like fun in best Indiana Jones style. Especially since it was unapologetic Pulp/Dieselpunk. The first thing that struck me was the Newsreel Intro, nicely done. The world  Black …

PULP! – Steampunk, Lovecraft and flying ships in one game!

Oh the wonders of the ætherweb! So many wonderful people with so many wonderful ideas. This one sounds really intersting: Flying ships in best Spelljammer (that’s old AD&D related material, back from the early 1990’s) tradition, coupled with Steampunk aethetics and some 1920s phantastic fiction, all blended into one game. …

The Mercury Men

My good friend Timo just brought this little ætherweb gem to my attention: The Mercury Men   Good job I mentioned Atompunk just two days ago, this fits the bill, somewhat. The Mercury Men is quite a cool mix and new take on several genres. Jack Yaeger looks and acts …

Happy Birthday Mr. Lovecraft

If he would still be with us today, H.P. Lovecraft, Master of the Macabre, Pulp-Icon, my favourite author and responsible for part of my son’s name, would celebrate his 120th birthday today. So, let’s take a moment to skip through the pages of the many versions of the Necronomicon available …

Diesel-Pulp-Minimovies

Just recently stumbled across the Youtube Channel of Battlejitni, so far there are only two videos in it, but it sure looks promising. One is a trailer, the other one is the following: It looks a lot like pulp and it sure is fun, and it does not take itself …
