This is a collection of adventures in a cthulhuid version of the early 40s in North America, an era known as the Great Depression.

The books starts with an essay about the era. For me it was an interesting and atmospheric dense read (as I'm european, I haven't know much about this era in America before). It gives some idea for player character backgrounds but has very few (if any) information about the Cthulhu myth. It inspired me to have a look into Steinbeck's 'The Grapes of Wrath'.

However, the adventure fall short to this. They all fall into the category 'hounded house'. And it does not help that this theme is variegated in all permutations.

Don't get me wrong: the adventures are not-that-bad as one-shots. But there connection to the Great Depression is rather thin.

Technical this is one of the rare few PDFs with extreme deficiencies: on my tablet, I was only able to read them with the 'real' Adobe PDF reader. Several other readers crashed. Certainly there is no PDF enable TOC or Glossary or Index.
