"When a traveller in north central Massachusetts takes the wrong fork at the junction of the Aylesbury Pike just beyond Dean’s Corners he comes upon a lonely and curious country."

- The Dunwich Horror

This issue of the Arkham Gazette was developed as a 'proof' of concept' test to see if the idea for a magazine focused on the Lovecraft Country setting for The Call of Cthulhu RPG was feasible and if there was interest.  First released in August of 2013, this newly revamped version of the issue has been updated to our current format, the articles within have been revised, two pieces of artwork by Galen Pejeau added, and a new article has been included as well.

The theme for this issue is The Aylesbury Pike, the (fictional) road running between Arkham and Aylesbury, which forms a parallel backbone for Lovecraft Country along with the Miskatonic River. 

Contents include:

  • New place: The Amos-Goodrich Cemetery
  • New England's Highways, an introduction
  • A History of the Aylesbury Pike
  • New person: Curtis Sloan, "Encyclopedia Salesman"
  • A Guide to New England's Petroglyphs and those found in Lovecraft Country
  • A short encounter - Mr. Picket Goes a Huntin'
  • **NEW** A scenario seed - The Phantom of the Aylesbury Pike
  • SCENARIO: "The Chapochaug Tunnel Haunting"
  • An annotated list of scenarios set on or near (or are otherwise connected to) the Aylesbury Pike.

Conversion notes for use of this issue with 7th Ed. Call of Cthulhu rules are provided as a separate PDF, as are a separate PDF of the issue's handouts.

The Arkham Gazettes add a nice touch of historic realism (even when the material is fictional) to any game based on Lovecraft country, as well as invaluable plot hooks to get your mind working. For example, in this issue there is a nice discussion on [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
