the Y U NO CTHONIAN thread made me rekindle this:

Sandy tried to get a hold of Ramsey Campbell's agent a couple of times before the KS and since. No dice. There are some really cool indie GOOs that could one day before miniatures with rules, etc.

But first, does anyone have good google-fu, and can actually find his current agent? Or his real email that he checks? Or his home address so a cultist can actually go there in person? All you British folks, go knock on his door and ask him
Ok, don't do that.

But some of my favorite non-HPL GOOs are Campbell's. I REALLY want Y'golonoc in my CW.

Who knows, maybe this could be a separate KS next year, if we get permission (which I've no doubt we will, so long as we can actually communicate with Ramsey Campbell - in fact, Sandy told me once he'd be happy to send Mr. Campbell a free copy!).

Or, instead of a new KS, maybe it could piggyback off of another KS of ours, if we ever do another Cthulhu game.

Or, maybe we'll just do it and sell them.

Anyway, I want Campbell's GOOs in my CW! Someone, anyone, how can we find his real agent? What we found didn't work, but perhaps one of you has better methods?

This cat is his agent: http://www.johnjarrold.co.uk/

I am guessing you already figured that out, but my google fu failed to bring up any other contact information than what is there. Hopefully someone on BGG just happens to live in the flat next to his...

Maybe some of the WorldCon organisers might be able to help? I work with someone who is involved - I'll ask him on Monday.

Another thought: his most recent book was published in 2013, Amazon list the publishers as Drugstore Indian Press, based in Hornsea, UK, an imprint of PS publishing:

http://www.pspublishing.co.uk/drugstore-indian-press-57-c.as...

Maybe they could help? They have contact details on their website

EDIT: The news section on his website mentions a book published by PS in Oct 2014, and he describes them as "indefatigable" so presumably he has a good relationship with them:

So I'd go with contacting them.

PS: Brian Lumley seems active as recently as Feb 2015, has a contact us page here: http://brianlumley.net/Services.html

Since cthonians are in Mansions of Madness, he should be amenable?

You could also try contacting Mike Davis at Lovecraft eZine, since I have seen Ramsey interviewed on his video show. I know Mike also interviewed Sandy about Cthulhu Wars when it was in development and the website featured a post about the game when it finally shipped.

Mike Davis actually doesn't live too far from Sandy - they are friends and Mike has actually been to Sandy's house on a few occasions. haha, I don't know why I didn't think of this before.

So what you are saying is that you spent all that time researching, googling, sending emails, phone calls . . . . just to find that the answer lies with the neighbor who borrows your dad's lawnmower every week.

Are you trapped in an After School Special script?

I spoke to my work colleague today, who is a committee member for WorldCon SF conventions. He said that contacting PS publishing would probably be the easiest way to contact Ramsey as they have a lot of ongoing communication.

So it seems like there are two possibilities!
