Truk Stop

Interesting that the artwork was an old style gasoline pump to look like a hydrogen pump. Plus, the story is all about traps so I'm trying to see the connection.

I created a graphic to go with the title, decided at the last minute that Weno was boring and revised the story to emphasize the expedition to Totiw, then contacted the cold from [unpleasant location], which pretty much put paid to any chance of creating a new graphic to match the revised story. More proof, if any was needed, that bad colds are not a terrific amount of fun. Now I'm relying on a primitive anaerobic metabolism while I want for my respiratory system to re-evolve :)

Trust me, I've had the Creeping Crud™ for nearly a month. And my less than stellar phrasing of the question certainly didn't help. All of that to say I saw lots of sprung traps but was anything of value actually found?

Quite possibly, but for this we may have to wait a few more episodes :)

Where are the Cthulhoids? I suppose the mud layer is the answer.

However:

There's no cthulhu
like no cthulhu
like no cthulhu
at all

Surely we all remember this one from when we were kids:

R'lyeh ladies sing this song
Fhtagn! Fhtagn!
R'yleh's sunked fathoms deep
Oh, ph'nglui fhtagn!
Gonna rise fronm the deep!
When the stars are right!
Bet my money on a shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light,
Then the Earth got cleared off!

Wouldn't this be a good time for Be-Bop-A-Ree-Bop Rhubarb Pie?
