    Great interview, @mattstaggs:disqus !

    Wonderful topics and guest.

    I’ll have to take a look at _The Long Lost Friend_ .

    I’ve already got a copy of Harms’ _Encyclopedia Cthulhiana_ on my bookshelf.

    In that same vein, maybe you could get Robert M. Price on your show. I’d love to hear you interview Price or Harms (again) without the necessity for keeping the discussion at a “General Interest” level.

    Thanks for this episode.

    • Matt Staggs

      Hey, @zenc! Price has tentatively agreed to a discussion – I just need to follow up. And yeah, I’ve got the Encyclopedia, too. GREAT resources. Thanks for listening!

      • Zenc

        Hey, just a friendly reminder to follow up on Robert M. Price, if that’s still in the works.

        Good job on the Mayan technology show too. What a relief it was to hear someone talk about something other than the calender issue.

    Matt, this was far and away one of the best of your recent podcasts. Keep up the good work!

    • Matt Staggs

       I really appreciate you saying so. Thank you.
