re: Non-lovecraft Cthulhu stories - wordsmith
Isn't Cthulu, strictly speaking, but [i]Meddling Kids[/i] by Edgar Cantero plays off of this mythos (and Scooby Doo stories, just FYI). It's been a fun read so far. ...

re: London in June - wordsmith
I always recommend the Churchill War Rooms. And since you'll be there in June, you should see a play at Shakespeare's Globe theatre. They have a schedule here: [link=(https://www.shakespearesglobe.com/uploads/editor/files/brochures/2019_Summer_season_schedule_updated_January_2019.pdf)]summer 2019 sc...

re: Traveling to Dublin, Ireland in the summer, Any advice? - wordsmith
I enjoyed this tour of Newgrange: [link=(https://www.newgrangetours.com/)]LINK[/link] I also took a tour that visited a castle (can't remember which one) and the lake where Guinness gets its water from (and where Vikings was filming at the time). I don't remember the company, but I'm sure most su...

re: London in January? - wordsmith
I don't have anything that's "January specifics," I would just recommend visiting the same sites and museums that I would any other time of year. Don't be discouraged about going in January. I would recommend you bring a nice packable coat (Lands End and LL Bean usually have great options). And the ...
