The real irony of the whole superheroes-versus-YA war that’s going on at the box office right now is that Marvel could easily capture the young-adult-fiction crowd if they’d just pull their heads out of their arses and make a superhero movie…
Is Runaways in the Marvel house? That could work pretty well.
dear Onyx Path,
I will literally give you every cent I earn if you make more fucking Wraith books, especially historical settings
love, tamale jockey
(PS: I’m still pissed that you gave a Dark Ages book to fucking Changeling: the Dreaming of all things but not Wraith)
You will totally have your chance with the Kickstarter.
the Shadowlands in Europe must be fucking terrifying
like, the oldest ghosts in the United States are maybe 300 years old at a stretch, and most are somewhat easy to understand even given the difference
contrast that with the millions of wartime and plague dead who died en masse, the massive number of ghosts who date all the way back to Rome and even earlier
I don’t even want to think about the wraiths of the Middle East
I think that, on a dramatic level, that’s what the Maelstroms are for — they purge the Shadowlands and bring the population back down to a reasonable level.
The Hopkins and Allen Vest Derringer,
In the late 19th and early 20th century Hopkins and Allen was one of the three major manufacturers of cheap break top and pocket revolvers, competitors with Iver Johnson and Harrington & Richardson. In 1911 Hopkins and Allen introduced a small single shot .22 short vest pistol that was an attempt to compete in a more highbrow market. The Hopkins and Allen derringer was a simple break top derringer that could easily fit in the palm of ones hand. At the time it was probably one of the smallest pistols on the market. To make the pistol more compact, it lacked a trigger guard but feature a fold out trigger.
In an attempt to attract high class customers, every Hopkins and Allen vest derringer came complete with factory engraving, pearl grips, and a shiny brass Hopkins and Allen medallion. As a result, the Hopkins and Allen derringer was significantly more expensive than pocket pistols of its type. Unfortunately the Hopkins and Allen made the derringer too fancy. People wanted cheap pocket pistols, fancy decorated derringers were not only too expensive, but were quickly worn down by rigors of pocket carry. Hence, few people carried expensive, pretty, shiny pocket pistols knowing that they would become worn. In addition .22 short is one of the weakest calibers in production, hardly a manstopper, and the effectiveness of the Hopkins and Allen derringer was limited by its one anemic shot. Production ended in 1915, with only 1,400 being produced. Today they are very collectible, ranging in price from $1000 - $4,000 depending on condition.
