	Hi all,

	Thanks Cas for the heads up on the Lumley book.  I have
not got time to read it (or write for that matter) right now, but I 
have it on a list.

	Of the two ways to handle insantity that I've roleplayed, 
(Call of Chthulhu and GURPS), I prefer the GURPS system.
It seemed less artificial.  (Also I was bugged that you would
keep seeing the same old low level horrors in CoC, but 
you never got used to them.)
