One of the sub-releases of this year's BPAL Halloweenies is the Pickman Gallery, another one of Beth's Lovecraftian comedy series. Read the copy, it's hilarious--Beth is the foremost comic Lovecraft fan fiction writer out there.

Though they usually spoke in general pleasantries, today they spoke of past times, even the time in the cottage. There was a wistfulness in Edmerka's voice that struck both dread and hope into the King's heart; on the one hand, she might finally be reconciling past love with present, but on the other, she might be taking her leave, though with a certain sadness.

As for Edmerka, she had made up her mind.
