Quote from: original
RISE OF THE LYCANTHROPES!

HUMANITY’S DAYS LOOK NUMBERED. EARTH HAS FOUND ITSELF LIVING UNDER A PERMANENT FULL MOON and the majority of the world’s population have been transformed into flesh-hungry werewolves. As the scattered survivors find themselves as part of the food chain, a young London based woman named Rowan Morrigan discovers that she may be destined to save the human race!



Quote from: translated
The growth of librotropics!

The days of mankind are numbered. The country has admitted to being regular swimmers for a month, and most of the world's population has become hungry for meat. As distracted survivors enter the food chain, a young Londoner finds out that she is destined to save humanity!

Seeing as it's World Goth Day today...


Quote from: translation
He wants to save this world ... Canada!

Are students who share the earth in their unhealthy apartment at Swan Hubbell. Stoner is an avid film monster and a Gothic artist. They are all magnetic for evil attacks and incredible rituals.
If it breaks down, out of fear may be humanity’s main hope.

This is very close to being a Future Shock from Prog 287.

Funt Solo wasted no time in getting that one!

Quote from: original-blurb
THEY'RE HERE TO SAVE THE WORLD... KINDA!

Becky Miller and Jarrod Kawl are a pair of students sharing a flat in the less-than-salubrious Swineboil Apartments. He's a stoner movie geek, she's a power-crazed Goth artist ­ together, they're a magnet for every demonic incursion and ectoplasmic event going. They could be mankind's last hope against the terrors from beyond­ if they could only get off their arses.

And here's something for the weekend!


Quote from: google
See Dred Detective!

It is advisable to bury the slide in the UK market.  Because of the advantages and disadvantages of Luder is the player in the presence of the disease, Iron Age missiles are said to be criminalized for operating under the presidency of the Iron Age. That's fine. But his death is so small, will he be caught?

No guesses at the Dred Detective yet?  Guess it's time for some type of clue.  Despite appearances, it isn't a story about Dredd visiting Brit-Cit...

I was overjoyed to see how one particular bit got translated, as it's so misleading (a bit like the Ant Wars / Zancudo bit where it mentions bears but has nothing to do with Shako).  If nobody has it by Friday evening I'll give a clue as to which bit is so misleading...

Yeah, I don't know that one.

Can you guess this thrill based on my description?...

Yes, but then D.R. & Quinch Have Fun on Earth was one of the stories that was in the handful of progs which was handed to me and introduced me to the GGC.

Nobody has it so far, so I'll reveal the incredibly misleading bit - "See Dred Detective!" has absolutely nothing to do with Dredd or Dredd-world stories.  Oh, and Latin for 'game' is 'ludus'...
